Jelly Belly first introduced the Bean Boozled challenge to the world in 2008. This cleaver bit of trickery pits 2 identical-looking beans against each other, with flavors that couldn’t be any more different. Is it going to be birthday cake, or dirty dishwasher?

Uniquely-Flavored craft sodas that are sure to grab your customer’s attention:

Lester’s Fixins Ranch Dressing Soda


Maybe you thought we were joking when we mentioned ranch dressing flavored soft drinks, but we weren’t kidding! Lester’s Fixins is well-known for their lineup of unique soda flavors. The ranch dressing soda is one of the most unique items on our list! This soda pop would go great with hot wings, carrot sticks or maybe even French fries. Order this very strange soda here.

Lester Fixins Enchilada Soda


Lester’s Fixins really knows how to make a unique product that literally no one even asked for! Take their enchilada-flavored soda. We promise, we didn’t just make this one up either – it is a real product! Okay, so maybe this is the most unique item on our list… If you love enchiladas, you’ll probably like this soda too! Order these from our website, here.

Avery’s Dog Drool Soda


Avery’s is no stranger to unique flavors. Thanks to their “Make Your Own Soda” program, they have given young soda crafters the opportunity to come up with some crazy flavor combinations. While the name “Dog Drool” may sound gross, we assure you that this orange and lemon flavored soda pop is actually delicious! Made with real cane sugar, this soda is perfect for boy’s birthday parties and a treat for soda enthusiasts of any age. Order these here.

Rocket Fizz Butter Soda


Soda pop with the distinctive flavor of butter! Certainly this is an unconventional take on a craft soda, but who cares! Butter makes almost anything taste better, so why not wash down your Thanksgiving mashed potatoes and stuffing with a cool, refreshing butter soda? The only question we have is does it taste like real butter, or margarine? Let us know if you happen to figure it out! Order this product here.

Rocketfizz Grass Soda


Now we know this one may sound gross to some (who eats grass? I mean, besides cows)… We are definitely not cows, but we actually love this soda! While it might seem hard to make grass taste good, adding a copious amount of real cane sugar surely doesn’t hurt! Although the bottle says: “mowed & bottled in the USA”, this product does not actually contain any grass. Try it for yourself and let us know what you think! Order your Grass Soda here.

Hanks Pumpkin Spice Soda


It seems like pumpkin spice is all the rage nowadays. Maybe that’s just because it’s almost Halloween and everyone is talking about it, but pumpkin spice sure does satisfy some nostalgic synapses in our brains.

So, what better way to celebrate autumn than with a crisp, refreshing pumpkin spice-flavored soda from Hank’s Beverages! Just like their signature root beer, this seasonal soda is handcrafted with only the finest, high-quality ingredients. Featuring the distinct pumpkin spice flavors of nutmeg, allspice and vanilla, you’ll begin to feel the holiday spirit from your first sip! For a limited time, you can order these sodas here.

Sprecher Wisconsin Maple Root Beer


Everyone loves a good root beer, but when you add the distinctive flavor of Wisconsin maple syrup you’ve got a real winner!

Order these here.

Boots Beverages Coconut Cream Soda


Boots Beverages are made for fun. Their coconut cream soda is no different. One sip will carry you off to a sunny beach somewhere with island breezes coming through this unique soda pop.
