With summer coming on, I know many of us will be wanting something cold to sip on. There are some crazy soft drinks out there, believe me, and this has to be one of the strangest!
You know those hot summer days when the only thing you can think about is getting your hands on a nice crunchy onion and just going to town? No, you don’t because you are a sane human being. You are also not in the target market for South Korea’s onion soda.
Produced by Tamla Village Company, Ltd., this fizzy, sulfurous abomination is basically concentrated and carbonated essence of onion. If you can successfully wrestle the can past your nose, the drink is supposed to have amazing health benefits. The drink is believed to reduce cholesterol, clean the blood, and prevent cancer, so it’s no wonder the beverage’s tear-jerking aroma is tolerated.
Of course, it’s anyone’s guess as to whether any of these claims are actually true or just a combination of cultural superstition and clever marketing. Personally, if it means never having to put the foul liquid anywhere near my mouth, I’ll take their word for it.
I think I'll pass on this particular flavor and stick with my Pepsi. Maybe a little sweet tea, ya know? No Onion soda for me...thanks!
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. Rain is back again...with a vengeance!
