No Accounting for Taste

No Accounting for Taste

Did you ever see the Saturday Night Live classic skit on sour milk? One of the actors opens the refrigerator and pulls out a carton of milk and takes a swig and then promptly spits the milk out as it has gone sour. He makes a big fuss about it to his friend who takes the carton to taste for himself …and, of course, spits out the sour milk.  This gag continues and gets funnier and funnier as more and more people feel compelled to taste for themselves. 

If you have been in our store you will notice that we stock a wide variety of soda pops, some hard to find classics plus a nice variety of unusual flavors.  Included in the unusual flavors category are: buffalo wing barbecue-flavored soda, bacon-flavored soda, and celery-flavored soda.  In our opinion these are some of the grossest tasting sodas …EVER!

Grossest Flavors, Top Sellers

It might be the novelty of the name that compels people to buy and sample these gross sodas. Or, maybe it is the SNL effect where people need to experience the taste for themselves. We can’t say that we have had anyone spew their gross soda out while in the store, the health department would definitely frown on that…and so would we.  But, what baffles us is the fact that these gross soda flavors are among our top sellers in the store.  Whether you buy it because you love it, or have other reasons for purchasing such as for a gag gift…let us just say thank you very much!

At Cravings we will definitely keep stocking what sells the best.  Have you tried our Sweet Corn soda? Try it, you’ll like it!
