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.

  1. Dartagnian! That’s the other Musketeer.

    Not sure if that will help you figure out the mystery flavor. We can only hope.

  2. Mr. Pibb tastes a lot like Dr. Pepper. I used to really like Diet Mr. Pibb…it came in a purple can…but I haven’t seen it in years. I think I remember reading it takes approximately 2000 licks to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop, but I’ve never verified that for myself.

  3. I can’t get the phrase “crazy delicious” out of my head. Why…WHYYYYYY?!

    And…40 oz cup? That’s. Scary. WHYYYYYYYYY.

  4. Yeah, Mr. Pibb is just a different version of the Dr. Pepper prune flavored soda.

    I’ve never had Airheads … I’m really behind in my candy tasting.

    My favorite has always been Coke Slurpees, or were those Icees?

  5. Yah! My most favorite thing and you reviewed it! I love you more today then yesterday!
    I tried the mystery flavor and I’d say it was orange. The offical Slurppe website (who knew!) says it could be blue raspberry, watermelon, strawberry, or orange. Whatever it is, I love it. Sluprees for all!

  6. You know, I bet those kids on Scooby Doo stopped by the 7-11 for a slurpee and nachos after a hard day of solving mysteries. You can’t tell me they didn’t have the munchies quite often.

  7. But if it did taste like pee, how would you know? And your sense of hearing can talk? One to horrify the ladies, one to impress them.

  8. Jim – Nope, it didn’t help me. But maybe now that tidbit of info will help me finally beat SmartWater.

    Mir – I dig chicks with glasses, because when chicks take them off, I look much hotter than I truly am in their blurry eyes.

    Webmiztris – Definitely not pineapple. I say build your own 7-11. You’d make a killing or you’d get killed, if someone robs it.

    ga girl – Would me telling you that it’s in the 80s here make you warmer? Or would that make you want to kick my ass?

    Chuck – 2000 licks. My tongue doesn’t have that kind of stamina. Sorry, ladies.


    40 ounces of frozen delight.
    I could nurse it from noon to midnight.
    I could also suck it up in five minutes with ease.
    I’m man enough to overcome the brain freeze.

    cybele – You’ve never had Airheads! And you call yourself a “candy reviewer?” 😉 Anyway, there are Coke Slurpees and Coke Icees? I prefer the Icee.

    Jessica B – Blue raspberry? Watermelon? Strawberry? Orange? I can’t tell. Damn, my tastebuds are messed up.

  9. cybele – I’m seriously thinking about buying one. Heck, it’s only 10 dollars. However, I think they’re going to end up like “Pedro for President” t-shirts. Everyone is going to have one.

    Mellie Helen – Merry Christmas to you, longtime Impulsive Buy reader, Mellie Helen.

    rfduck – I’m sure they had more than Slurpees and nachos. They probably bought out the chips and cookies.

    klew – I would know, but I don’t want to tell the traumatic story.

    Gia on Guam – Yes, it was very funny. One of the funniest things I’ve seen in awhile.

    Hank – I usually just record SNL. Watch Weekend Update, and if there’s a TV Funhouse cartoon, I’ll watch that as well.

    Karen – I wish those meddling kids could solve the mystery of my missing love life. 🙁

    Caroline – Oooh, I have access to Dr. Pepper AND Twizzlers. I think that will be crazy delicious.

  10. So, I have this trick for figuring out the Airheads mystery flavor. If you close your eyes and imagine the color of the flavor, it will work better, because most artificial flavors are more associated with colors than with real fruit. So, if you think it’s orange, imagine you’re drinking an orange drink. If that seems wrong, try blue, or whatever the other colors are. Maybe it will work, maybe it won’t, but it almost always makes the mystery flavor more fun!

  11. In referebce to David’s post, how do you taste colors? Are you implying that Marvo should experiment with Acid?
    Actually that doesnt sound like a bad idea.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

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


    i have to say, an airheads slurpy sounds gross.

  15. 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 🙂

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
