Mixable Drinks

Thousands of possible drinks
  [vote for,

More things need to be mixable. I, for one, love Jelly Bellys because I can mix them around. For those of you that don't know, Jelly Bellys are jelly beans made for mixing (2 popcorn + 2 cinnamon = 1 cinnamon popcorn ball). People like mixing their fountain drinks (sometimes called a graveyard or suicide etc.), why not just make soda meant for mixing? Some flavors could include grape, cherry, watermelon, apple etcetera. Each flavor by itself is clear and tasty, but when mixed with others they would change colors AND flavors. The drink dispenser could have some standard mixes on it like "1/3 grape, 2/3 watermelon = grapermelon" and so on.

       //but when mixed with others they would change colors AND flavors//   

       Whilst mixing two flavours together can give rise to a product which to some extent is more than the sum of the parts (since flavours can be complementary) I don't think it's possible to *change* flavours by mixing two together. Not least because we don't understand the mechanism of olfaction.   

       Unless you meant making flavour mixes - eg apple pie flavour from mixing apple and cinnamon?

       Confused. How is this different from simply mixing fountain drinks?   

       (I have done this all my life, so I'm sympathetic, but you're really just marketing a widely Baked concept.)

       I mix Perrier and Evian to make a water that's evier.   

       //when mixed with others they would change colors//
I have mixed post-mix drinks (as I always thought they were called) and can confirm that whatever combinations of sticky sweet syrup fluid are used, the resultant elixir is always the same brown as is found in ditches surrounding landfill sites.

       There's already a wide range of drinks which are sold largely or exclusively for use in cocktails and as mixers (e.g. vermouth, tonic water, gin, angostura bitters, cranberry juice, tequila, ginger ale). Some of them even come with cocktail recipes on the bottle. How is this idea any different?

       No alcohol.

       My mates have baked this with alcohol but then i suspect most people of drinking age have, the best combinations are the ones you will never be able to mix again. With this fact in mind i susgest a memory system be added to tell you what you mixed.

       [hazel]"I don't think it's possible to *change* flavours by mixing two together" Have you ever eaten Jelly bellys? http://weirdweb.net/jelly/   

       [DrCurry] Fountain drinks aren't made for mixing. 7up + Pepsi doesn't equal something good. Have you ever seen a fountain drink dispenser that said "Try mixing 3/4 Pepsi and 1/4 Orange for something good?" No, you haven't. So, no, it isn't baked.   

       [calum] You have a point, maybe they should all be colorless, so the result isn't ugly.   

       [kropotkin] I'm talking about SODA. At places like Pizza Hut, and McDonalds, Dairy Queen, <insert resturaunt near you here>. That's how it's different.   

       To each his own.

       Sprite Remix-you get free flavor packs with you drink so you can change the flavor. Ring a bell?
mastermindmortal, Mar 05 2004

       Go ahead, mix 'em. What's stoppin' ya?   

waugsqueke, Mar 05 2004

       //but when mixed with others they would change colors AND flavors//   

       When you mix two sodas, doesn't the flavor ALWAYS CHANGE?   

       P.S. Vanilla coke mixed with mountain dew tastes nasty. Do not try!
