Things I have put in my mouth

More novelty beverages, also from Kalustyan's, land of wonderful and mysterious things.

Rose Drink:


This tasted...very perfumy and very very sweet. I'm fond of desserts with rose water in them, but I'm not likely to get this again, because I don't really like that much sugariness to my beverages. (It's why I hardly ever drink soda.) Well, I take that back. I don't like too much sugariness to my beverages unless I'm drinking coffee, in which case I usually want all the sugar there is on the table, and one more packet please.

Basil Seed Drink With Honey:


This one I really liked. The consistency is very similar to bubble tea. It looks like it's going to be gloppy, but it's actually pretty light and refreshing. The flavor is hard to pin down. I guess it's what basil seed and honey tastes like.

Oh my god, you found basil Orbitz. I must see if any of the local Middle Eastern groceries carry this.

Maybe that rose drink just needs to go over some nice crushed ice, garnished with a sprig of baby's breath or maybe some ferns.

I'm glad that second one tastes good, because it looks like just the kind of thing that the Transportation Security Administration was freaking out about a couple of months back. Or a salad dressing.

I don't think I would want either one to topple over and fall into my printer, in any case.

It looks like liquid leopard frog.


How can that be a good thing? Unless you're, like, maybe a raccoon or a walleye or something.

I believe that would more appropriately be served in a zoo than a specialty food store.

That doesn't look like liquid frog—it looks amazingly like a bottle of frog eggs.
