First off: Do not try this at home.
With that out of the way, in fifth grade, my teacher rolled out the glorious television set and put on for us the Bill Nye the Science Guy episode of Digestion. You can actually watch the episode right now on Netflix if you so desire. Anyways, halfway through the episode, Bill does this
After Bill drank the contents of his glorious stomach shake, everyone in my class went “Ewwwwwwwwwww!” while I just sat there and wondered, what did the shake taste like?
This question had been sitting at the back of my mind for half of my life. I always wanted to try out the Bill Nye Shake but I never did because I just…well…never gotten around to it! Truth be told, I always thought it would be kind of good.
Now, for the purpose of this blog, I have made and tasted the Bill Nye Shake.
Psyching myself up, I trekked down the local Burger-Fi shop and ordered myself a burger, some fries, and a chocolate shake. Strolling confidently back, we cleaned out our blender (which still had remnants of a blended strawberry daiquiri in it) and proceeded to put all the basic ingredients in. Realizing that if I hated the shake I would have wasted money, I only used half of my food so at least to make the Bill Nye Shake.
Anyways, after a satisfying blending, it was time for the taste test. Truth be told, it looked like a regular chocolate shake albeit a little chunky. A faint whiff of onions from Shake tickled my nose and then I downed it.
Describing the taste is quite hard though I have to say upfront that it was not good. Bill’s reaction the drink is very similar to my own. Bleh. It’s not surprising though that it just tasted bad considering it was a mix of fries, buns, meat, tomatoes, pickles, onions, a chocolate shake and fries. My stomach even felt queasy holding it in despite its food that my organ has seen plenty of times before.
I think the worst part though is the consistency, holy crap if the consistency was better than the drink would be tolerable. The best way I can describe it is if you took a milk shake and mixed it with a whole bunch of poorly grounded peanuts. It tasted so….chunky.
Anyways, lesson learned, never doing that again. Though I still want to bake my hotdog, fries, pickles, and barbeque sauce pizza again in the near future. That was delicious!
