Now what is your second favorite snack? Is it peanut butter and jelly!?!?!
If both of the above ring true, consider yourself in luck. Van Gogh, the Holland vodka maker, not the Serbian Band known for their unique Electro Pop sound, has created a new vodka flavor dubbed Peanut Butter and Jelly.
“The fragrance of our PB&J vodka is predominantly of peanuts complemented by the fresh fruit aroma of raspberry. In the mouth, the roles are reversed with the raspberry taking center stage supported by the toasty flavor of peanut butter and a hint of vanilla on the side.”
That was a snippet from the Van Gogh wesbite, not my reaction to having tasted the vodka inspired by bread and crushed nuts/berries.
My reaction is that nobody has ever heard of Van Gogh, the liquor-maker, so they made a crazy flavor that would get them some touches on HuffPo. According to some reactions:
…”tastes like peanuts and then finishes as jelly.”
…”rubbing alcohol and burned peanut shells, with a strong kick of fake grape jelly that lingers long afterward.”
But just like the original, try it with milk and it’s a whole new ballgame:
…”tasted like a White Russian but was missing something.”
According to Tom Vos, the architect of the Peanut Butter and Jelly:
The fragrance of our PB&J Vodka is predominantly of peanuts, and is complemented by the fresh fruit aroma of the raspberry. On the tongue, the roles are reversed and the raspberry flavor is more of the focal point, giving it a velvety texture with a hint of vanilla on the side.
If you want to know what it tastes like yourself, make a PB&J and let it sit in ethanol for roughly 12 hours. If you would like to purchase a bottle of your own, make sure you have 27 bucks handy and check out one of Van Gogh’s distributors.
Vile and disturbing - or useful controversy? Feminist pride or get THEE F%$%$ away from me?
I like art...but only the kind that makes you want to roll up into a ball and crawl down your own throat so you can throw yourself back up and…
