Airheads Mystery Slurpee Flavor

I really was hoping that the Airheads Mystery Slurpee Flavor would taste like Mr. Pibb and Red Vines, because I hear it equals crazy delicious.

Unfortunately, I have no idea what Mr. Pibb tastes like, so just like the number of licks it takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop, the number of licks it takes to stop a Timex from ticking, and the number of licks it takes to have a woman say my name in the heat of passion, I will probably never know the answer.

I will also probably never know what the mystery flavor is for this Airheads Slurpee. I could try to solve the mystery, but I don’t like food that makes me think, especially a Slurpee, because it’s hard to think when I’ve got brain freeze.

When I have brain freeze, I’m not in any condition to solve a mystery. Maybe if I had a groovy Mystery Machine, some meddling kids, a dumb dog, and Scooby Snacks, I could solve the mystery, but I don’t.

However, I knew that not knowing what the mystery flavor was would peck at my brain like trying to figure out the name of the fourth musketeer or being subjected to a Chinese water torture.

So to figure out what the mystery flavor was, I did exactly what I do when I’m faced with multiple choice questions or when approaching “women” with slight facial hair and large hands…I tried guessing.

I figured if I used my five senses I could figure it out.

Using my sense of touch, I determined that the Slurpee was cold, which was pretty much a waste of time because my sense of sight could’ve of told me that.

Using my sense of sight, I determined that the Slurpee was yellow, which got me thinking, just like the Impulsive Buy puts the “ew” in product review, maybe this flavor puts the “pee” in Slurpee.

Using my sense of smell, I determined that the Slurpee had a fruity flavor, which caused my sense of hearing to hear, “No shit, Sherlock!”

Finally, using my sense of taste, I tried to come up with familiar fruity flavors. The flavor was very good, but my tongue gave me a variety of answers, like grape, strawberry-banana, cherry, and strawberry. So not only is my tongue a sex toy without much stamina, it also has some messed up taste buds.

Well I may not know what flavor the Airheads Mystery Slurpee Flavor is, but I do know that it equals crazy delicious.

Pros: Good fruity taste. Crazy delicious. Refreshing on a hot, sunny day. Velma.

    In reference to David’s post, how do you taste colors? Are you implying that Marvo should experiment with Acid?
    Actually that doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

  2. We thought Mr. Pibb was one of those early cherry colas. Cybele says prune flavored.

    Does this mean I like prunes? Or just laboratory-created prune flavor. I need to do some searching on this topic for my blog.

  3. mr x says:

    i emailed airheads before to ask what that damn flavor was, they said “well then it wouldn’t be a mystery, would it? ;)”

    assholes.

    i have to say, an airheads slurpy sounds gross.

  4. Wendy Wings says:

    I had sooooo many people send me the Chroni what cles of Narnia rap. Not sure why ( well yes actually I am sure why)
    New Zealand is a slurpee free zone, no nucs no slurpees and I like it that way :)

  5. Dr. Pepper is the nectar of the gods, and I don’t know if it ever really had prune juice in it . . . but I don’t care because I LOVE IT. Mr. Pibb is a syrup-ier version of Dr. Pepper . . . we get it at the theaters around here. Good stuff.

  6. Toni says:

    You know that Velma uh…well let’s just say, she’s the type to prefer Daphne over Fred, right?

    And yeah, Mr. Pibb tastes like Dr. Pepper. I’ve never seen it in a can though. I only get to drink it at fast food places.

    David – I think I’ll keep the flavor a mystery, because what if it really is “Pee-berry” or something like that.

    P057 – I once experimented with battery acid, and that wasn’t fun, so I don’t think the acid would be much fun, unless I was in mirror funhouse.

    Kelley Ritchey – Prunes are good. Especially the ones in rich prune syrup. Mmm…Just like in grade school cafeteria.

    mr x – At least it wasn’t Harry Potter Bertie Bott’s Mystery Slurpee. That would’ve not been fun.

    Wendy Wings – No Slurpees = No sugary goodness. Bummer.

    Vulgar Wizard – I shall find Mr. Pibb and see if it plus Red Vines equals crazy delicious.

    Toni – Well maybe Velma’s bi-sexual? Then it’s all good.
