PRIZE DRAWING: Because I Have Bottles of Baobab

I have two unopened bottles of the limited edition Pepsi Baobab, which I reviewed last week.

There are a number of things I could do with those bottles, like sell them on eBay for $5 plus shipping; wait six months, let them become more scarce and then sell them on eBay for $7 plus shipping; or wait five years, sell them on eBay for $10 plus shipping and hope the buyer doesn’t give me negative feedback when they get sick from drinking a five year old soda. Or I could have an Impulsive Buy prize drawing and have two lucky readers each win a bottle.

Yeah, that’s what I’ll do.

  1. I would so love to try this because I never had baobab before let alone every heard of it until your orginal post. Leave it to Pepsi to put it in a drink. Maybe it will be a pop tart flavor next? Anyway, My favorite fruit is pesticide free strawberries (aka organic).

  2. I’ve been a big fan of starfruit since I first had them about a year ago at a work function.

  3. Well, I could say my favorite fruit is Paul Lynde but that just wouldn’t be very politically correct so I will say peaches. Speaking of peaches, When I was a little kid my dad was in the Navy and we lived in West Germany at the time. One summer we drove to Spain and one the way there stopped at a fruit stand and bought some fresh peaches. I ate so many of them that I got the “runs.” My poor dad had to stop and find a bathroom. Somehow he found a nice lady in her Spanish farmhouse who let me use her bathroom.

  4. Baobab’s a pretty amazing flavor, but that could be the rarity of it here in the US and the good memories associated with the one time I had it (I led African orphans in a round of baobab seed spitting). I’d love to try baobab flavored soda. But if I had to pick just one fruit? Strawberries in the summer time.

  5. I like apples. Yup, nothing pretentious like pomegranate. Just a simple Granny Smith. I also don’t have time for yuppie fruit like Kiwis.

  6. I’m not sure if I have a favorite fruit… No wait, I take that back. I love watermelon.

  7. I would love a bottle of Baobab… My favorite fruit is the cherry. I can live off just about any food with cherries or cherry flavor it it.

  8. Like Black Flag said “Gimme, Gimme, Gimme”. My favorite fruit the Macintosh Apple but only from Upstate New York in the Fall.

  9. Guanabana is the champion of fruits. Bonus: the word guanabana can be sung to the tune of “Mah Na Mah Na.”

  10. Why the rhinocerous? I mean, everybody likes a good picture of a rhino, but what’s the connection? Does Baobab taste like rhino? Come to think of it, I would like to know what rhino tastes like. I tried to eat rattlesnake last week, but apparently you have to be in west Texas to find snake to eat. I was in east Texas. Oh, and I like bananas. Especially those little finger ones from Puerto Rico. But they have to be just on the green edge of yellow. When they go brown, it is banana bread time!

  11. Only one favorite fruit?? No? Ok, here’s my top three: mango, banana, grapefruit. MMMmm, I love fruit. And Pepsi.

  12. Nectarines are where it’s at… They’re definitely my favorite. But maybe Baobab will be my new favorite!

  13. Ah, to pick a favorite fruit… Well, for snacking, I love an apple or some grapes. For queso, can’t beat a tomoato. When it comes to shower gel, the pomegranate is best. 🙂

  14. Figs, not the nasty dried ones you find at super markets, but purple figs freshly picked off of the tree

  15. Avocados. Yeah, definitely Avocados…wait is that even a fruit? Well it is a fruit to me and my favorite one to boot. Now I might be willing to change my favorite to say Baobab if I was given a tasty bottle of the stuff…

  16. I have never had a Baobab, but my favorite fruit would have to be Kiwi. Love that stuff.

    And any scientifically engineered fruit has to be good, right?

  17. i’d have to say my favorite fruit is a tomato. but wait! is tomato a fruit?? ohmigod nooooooo paradoxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxzzzzzz1211!

    otherwise i enjoy pretty much any citrus-y fruit.

    p.s. i don’t really like tomatoes.

  18. My favorite fruit is persimmon. Peeled, dried, fat juicy red, or small crunchy orange, it is the best.

  19. My favorite fruit is pineapple. Best fruit. Abrasive exterior with a heart of gold.

  20. My favourite fruit is the Rainier cherry. Never even paid attention to varieties of cherries until I tasted one of these and now I look forward to their season (which is right about now!) every year.

  21. Oh, my favorite fruit is the quince. Or the honey tangerine. Or maybe the Honeycrisp apple. I really love fruit. I’m not sure there are any types of fruit I don’t really enjoy. This question is awful. Fruit fruit fruit!

  22. I love fruit. Pretty much all of it. My favorite fruit, if I must pick one, is currently rhubarb.

  23. Strawberries, nothing better than a good strawberry. I want to win this because I am really curious what one of Pepsi’s red headed bastard step children sodas is like

  24. My favorite fruit is my friend, Seth. Also grapes, those suckers are delicious!

    I collect unique Pepsi products, please pity me and my sad excuse of a hobby.

  25. Mangos are pretty groovy.

    Oranges are terrible, though. Probably the most terrible thing in the world, second only to people who *enjoy* oranges. (But orange juice is A-okay.)

  26. Food and beverage is my life. I work at a food mag, yo. And my favorite fruit is the ever ubiquitous maraschino cherry. Boom suckas!

  27. My favourite fruit is pomegranate which is, sadly, never available in this horrible state I live in. Go, Wyoming! >.<

  28. My favorite fruit is apple but I don’t think I’d like it if Pepsi Apple came out. I would still try it though. Maybe.

  29. My favorite fruit is one I’ve never had before–the chocolate pudding fruit Andrew Zimmern ate in Australia, or whatever. It looked good.

    BTW, my brother emailed me a couple weeks ago about Baobab–he bought some on Kadena in Okinawa. Liked it.

  30. I would love to try it but also wanted to ask something. Are you not doing your webcast reviews anymore? I thought they were pretty funny. My favorite fruit is the wonderful tomato followed by pineapple.

  31. It would be awesome if I could try the Baobab. My favorite fruit is the pineapple… I wonder if they make a pineapple pepsi.

  32. Since I can say whatever I want, I choose to say…tuba.

    My favorite fruit is watermelon.

  33. Bananas are my fave. What other fruit can you throw on the floor for comedic effect when you are done with it?

  34. I would have to say nectarines are my favorite fruit. So hard to choose though… I love pretty much every fruit I’ve tried so far.

  35. I love grapefruit. But when the time is right the drupes win my heart: peaches, apricots, plums, cherries.

  36. My favorite fruit is a tomato. Actually, I hate tomatoes, but, I made you think, didn’t I?

  37. Peaches. Nothing says love like Breyer’s Peach ice cream (back when it was all-natural, of course).

  38. I really do not like fruit. I like fruit pies and cakes, but eating fruit is very foreign to me. I guess I like kiwi fruit the best. Or quince.

  39. I LIKE PINEAPPLE. It’s my favorite fruit. When I was a young lad I convinced my girlfriend that pussy tasted like pineapple. That’s how I got her to eat pussy the first time.

    PS…Pepsi doesn’t taste like pussy, it’s still good.

    True story.


  40. Hmmmm… fruit? I like tomatoes but didn’t know they were classified as a fruit. Probably my very favorite is a perfectly ripe, big red raspberry.

  41. Hmmm, I’ve never heard of that stuff. It’d be nice to be the only one in my town to have Baobab

  42. Aw man, I was going to say Paul Lynde as well. Love that guy. Not in that way though.

    Since I was born in MI, I’m going to say cherries. Mmmmm, cherries!

  43. I have never had Baobab, so I’m going to go out on a limb and say that my favourite fruit is . . . Baobab! Thanks for the entertaining and sometimes informative website. Would love to spend an hour with you some day. Thanks!

  44. Cool man, I actually checked out eBay for these after reading your post cause it sounded pretty good, but didn’t want to end up payin almost 15 bucks for it. Anyways, my favorite fruit is bananas.

  45. i can never decide! it changes with the seasons. i love blackberries. and pineapple. and really ripe peaches. but i think my favorite is cherries. yes, i will go with cherries.

  46. Hi from Holland!
    Yeah that’s right, your blog reaches pretty far : )
    Really like your posts. I am a a visitor of this blog about every other day or so.

    Got a (Dutch) blog about food and drinks myself. The amount of followers is still very limmited, but perhabs a more recurrent weekly post will help this further. But than first gotta find more discipline or more disciples ; ) to get weekly posts.

    anyway : )
    Fruit: Lemons

    I don’t know if you are willing to send the soda all the way to the Netherlands, but that would be very very cool!

  47. Mango! I’ve been thinking about getting a tattoo of one (is that weird? especially since I have no tattoos?)

  48. I am a watermelon freak, when you get an awesome melon it’s hard to beat

  49. Marvo, you may convince me that Pepsi in different flavors is a good idea. My favorite fruit is Neil Patrick Harris. He’s the bee’s knees.

  50. Dingleberries, but seeing that some crybaby will go “Dingleberries come from the ass, not a tree!” waaaaaaa! “Dingleberries don’t taste like chocolate coverd berries, they taste like poo!” I will have to say
    green apples.

  51. My favorite fruit is forbidden ones!! bwwahaha.. Just kidding.. my favorite fruit is really strawberries.

    … adding things that are sticky, so my comment will be pulled out..

  52. I gotta say cantaloupe. Or cherries. No, mango. I think. Yeah, those three. Oh wait! Black raspberries. Those are definitely my favorite.
    Aw dang I want to win this! If I could get it before July 25th that would be great, that’s when my husband goes to basic training and it could be the last soda he drinks for MONTHS! It would be so exciting! We could make a video!

  53. My favorite fruit is mango. But I wrote a post about mango love a few days ago. I don’t know how kid friendly this site is, so I will leave out the stories of what I do with the gloriously yummy mango seed. and I’l complain about doing fifteen minutes of work and only ending up with three tablespoons of mango puree. I will stick to mango flavored teas, drinks, sorbets and expensive precut chunks at whole food. Oh, I also love rainier cherries. Yum.

  54. Since I’m from New Jersey, my favorite fruit has to be blueberry. Besides, Boo Berry is my favorite cereal because of it.

    Mmmm…. Blueberries

  55. I love every single fruit I’ve ever eaten, and my favorites are fresh-picked fruit like raspberries, strawberries, peaches, blackberries and cherries.
