A thing I've been wondering over a lot is; how Slurm would taste in real life. think about it, when you hear and see Slurm, what flavor are you associating to ?
When I hear "Slurm" I think about some sour tasting  Dr.pepper-ish flavor, thickness like water, maybe lots of caffeine in aswell.. wink

Please tell me your associations  big grin.

I've always thought it might have a Dr. Pepper taste too. I also think it might have a hint of Vimto to it!

Maybe because of the color, I think is vaguely fruity, really sugary, and somewhat viscous.

Like a Mountain Dew Slurpee, probably because of the colour.

My idea is probably not as fizzy as coke, highly addictive, rather smooth but can be rather hard. Goes down well, depending on the condition its in. If it's hot: smooth. If it's cold, rather hard.

I think this may just be the most unintentionally dirty thread title ever. Right on, Scruffy@Jail. tongue

As for Slurm: I think it would taste like Mountain Dew, only a wee bit more tangy. Oh, and it'd have the consistency of honey. Basically, it'd be the least refreshing beverage imaginable. Doesn't mean I would buy about seven hundred cases of it, though.

It would taste like ink, because it's an animated fictional beverage.

Thank god for italics--otherwise, your very subtle point might have been lost on me.

You're saying that Slurm isn't real, right?

In that case, you're quite insightful, coldy. Although it seems to me that making the "Futurama is fiction" argument is kind of futile; I mean, I for one didn't join a Futurama message board because I have a deep appreciation for *shudder* reality.

Semi-topic: I bought a deck of Futurama playing cards about four years ago, and they came in a cannister made up to look like a can of Slurm. For what it's worth, the cards were unfulfilling taste-wise: too much cardboard, not enough hot sauce.

Probably tastes like the original recipe for Coke, back when they used to put cocaine in it (yes, really). Explains why it's so popular. wink

Surprised Coca-Cola hasn't been persecuted for that. SOFT DRINK IS DRUGS.

I thought it would be thicker than Dr Pepper, but a similar taste.

Like Wumpus berries that look like a cross between blueberries and grapes. Maybe some honey flavor overtones too, since it's "processed" through a slug. The Wumpus berries might have evolved an addictive substance like tobacco or poppies to promote their survival. Can't think of anything phyically addictive to humans that isn't plant based.

I think Slurm would taste like sugary carbonated slime.

...but 7up is a clear drink. If you would choose it to tase like 7up, why not sprite?

I've always thought that slurm would taste somewhat grape-ish with a bit of a bitter after taste (like Monster!!) and be really thick, like a mixture of honey and coke. And it would be carbonated.

I prefer 7-up to Sprite and I only mentioned that I would like it to have the taste not the colour.

7up has a different taste to it that you can tell it from Sprite.

Wow... an argument about the taste carbonated beverages that are equally as crappy vomit-worthy... that taste the same. I find this amusing.

Sprite taste like cheap normal lemonade and 7up has a refreshing lemon and lime flavour and it tastes better, maybe its the way they make it.

Is it true that an actual drink called Slurm is going to be released? I'm surprised I haven't seen any Duff Beer to promote The Simpsons.
Basically, as we learnt from the Willy Wonka parody, Slurm is think green sugary slime which is highly addictive.
But why start a thread with a question when you know you will never get a real answer?
Coldangel_1 had a point. It has no taste at all, because it is not real.

It would be funny if in the future we found Planet Wormulon, or however it's spelled, and found the worms and the queen could make Slurm! But one day a message is sent to Wormulon from the Fox Network telling them to buy the rights to look like Futurama Characters, use the name of a planet in Futurama and to create a beverage based on one from Futurama, or be taken to court for breaking copyright laws!

Slurm is green and viscous, made from questionable ingredients, and makes your teeth fall out.  Thats about as good a description of Mountain Dew as you can get.
