Dear Japan: I Love You

Dear Japan:

Damn you, you sexy bitch. You gross us all out by producing some of the most terrifying snack food on the planet.

Japanese Pepsi


Cumber Pepsi: Add a twist of radish to complete a hat-trick of horrible.


Crispy Salmon Doritos: Leave these out for Santa and see what happens.


Octopus-flavored ice cream – Now with extra tentacle! (You knew there would be a tentacle joke in here somewhere.)

But then you lure me back with this hilarious video.

I wish I knew how to quit you.

    Octopus flavored ice cream…ohhh noooo D:. Octopus flavored octopus is bad enough.

    I plan on visiting Japan someday (Jennifer was born there) and it’s gonna be awesome, but I wonder what sort of weird foods I’ll to be tempted to try just because it’s available. Octopus ice cream won’t be one of them though, I hope.

      That will be such a cool visit! When you go, you must blog about all the weird foods you try. They have pork placenta soda. Why!?! :-p

        Who even thinks up that stuff? Almost as bad as that monkey poop coffee thing, funny to think somebody actually sat there and thought ‘hey let’s try drinking that and see what happens.’

        I think the weirdest drink I’ve had so far is Bird’s Nest something or another while in Indonesia. My dad had got a can for him and one for me during a road trip. It looked like a soda can with Korean writing on it except for the words Bird’s Nest typed out in English. I think to myself ‘Bird’s Nest, that’s a weird brand name, but hey it must be a thing here.’

        A few sips later and my dad says “That’s real bird’s nest by the way, best kind.”

        “Oh…good.” 0_0

    OMG, that is heinous. HEINOUS! What did it taste like?

    The weirdest thing I’ve ever eaten is alligator tail — which is actually awesome. It tastes like the delicious love child of a lobster and a chicken.

      It tasted weird but not too bad. Certainly not as bad as some random drinks I’ve grabbed from import shops stateside (then again who knows what freaky nest ingredients were in those). I would have guessed that it was a light jelly drink made out of a weird root or something.

      I can definitely say that the drink tasted a lot worse once I found out what was in it lol. Things were further complicated by the fact that I couldn’t stop drinking it or otherwise show how I thought it was…not so appetizing…since my dad was so proud of it. Apparently bird’s nest is a delicacy's_nest

      I just tried to think about how honey is basically bee barf, but that didn’t help too much. I would have much preferred an alligator tail kabob or something :D.

        You are a wonderful daughter for continuing to drink bird saliva soda to not hurt your Dad’s feelings. ❤ I loved my Dad very much but I am not sure I would be as noble.

        However, I might have done that thing that Bill Murray did in Scrooged where he pretended to drink that homeless guy's whiskey, LOL
