The “flavor” discourse began on Tumblr last year, where user @heedra claimed that mixing cranberry-flavored Mike’s Hard Lemonade with cucumber-lime Gatorade results in your tongue experiencing a taste “error.” Blogger @anmorata responded to @heedra’s post to prove them wrong but was unsuccessful.
“It so absolutely and definitely tastes like something, and that thing is nothing,” @heedra claimed.
“Diagnosis: it tastes?” wrote @anmorata.
The indescribable flavor challenge spreads to TikTok
“That is indescribable. It’s like a flavor void,” @f808z said after taking a quick shot of the cocktail. “I have no words for this. I have two literature degrees and no words. This is f***ed up.”
Viewers were intrigued by @f808z’s dramatic reaction to the drink, now wanting to try it for themselves.
“Two things I’ll never buy, but now I have to,” a TikToker commented.
“I don’t drink, nor am I old enough to, but now I desperately need to know,” another wrote.
“They’re gonna fix this bug in the latest simulation update,” someone joked.
After @the_jack_of_diamonds took the sip of the drink, they visibly struggled to formulate a sentence to describe it.
“This is truly incomprehensible,” @the_jack_of_diamonds exclaimed.
Other TikTok users tried to help @the_jack_of_diamonds describe the flavor in the comment section.
“Is the sweetness and tartness canceling each other out, so it makes it taste like [REDACTED]?” a TikToker asked.
“They don’t really cancel each other out, but there’s a bitterness and also a tingle? It’s very confusing,” @the_jack_of_diamonds responded.
