#9 Cat Wine
Apollo Peak Pet Wine knows that we all really want to drink with our cats – and dogs. The company came up with Cat Wine wanted to give your kitty the opportunity to blow off steam with some specially blended cat ingredients, such as catnip. It was inspired by Apollo, the owner’s cat, who went missing for two years and then came back.
#8 Kids Beer
Japan has come up with many drinks that might be called “creative.” Kids Beer was a soft drink that was sold in frosted glass bottles. It came under fire for its slogan, which was “even kids cannot stand life if they don’t have a drink.”
In central Asia, the men have a long tradition of being excellent horsemen. That might be why there is a drink made from fermented horse milk. This traditional drink is thought to be thousands of years old and packs a decent alcoholic punch.
#6 Liquid Smoking
Liquid Smoking promised that it would manage to take the edge off nicotine cravings, kind of like a liquid version of the patch or the gum. Its Dutch manufacturer was successful in the Netherlands, but it immediately came under fire for the possibility that it included nicotine as an ingredient.
#5 Cow Water
In India, cows are sacred. So sacred, that a company made a drink made from cow urine. Gau Jal or as it is translated, “Cow Water,” is marketed as a better alternative to coke and sugary drinks from the west. The company claims it has the power to cure many diseases.
#4 Panda Poop Tea
Tea is popular everywhere, so a Chinese entrepreneur is seeking to create the next level of excitement: tea grown in panda poop. Apparently, he invented a way to grow green tea in the poop of endangered and captive pandas. He claims that the tea is packed with nutrients.
#3 Placenta Drink
Everyone is convinced of the health benefits of consuming placenta, despite meager research proving the claims. Nihon Sufuken markets a drink on this basis, which is allegedly a peachy tasting drink made from the placenta or uterine lining of pigs.
#2 Bird’s Nest Drink
In China, the nest of the swiftlet is prized for its health benefits. These nests are made by birds by regurgitating the saliva onto a wall, where it creates a cup. The nests are even more prized when they are red tinted, because of blood in the saliva. To make the benefits of bird nest saliva more affordable, the makers of this drink combined it with sugar and water.
#1 Pepsi White
Ah, Japan. The country certainly has the knack for inventing interesting drinks. Pepsi White was what happened when the soft drink giant dumped lumpy yogurt into a bottle in an attempt to create a “fun” winter drink. Your best bet is to drink this only in the cold, since at warmer temps, it might actually curdle.
