Snake Wine with Scorpion

Snake and Scorpion Wine
Snake Wine is a rice based alcohol which is infused with a real snake, ginseng roots and herbal seed pods. Sometimes lizards, frogs and scorpions are added for extra potency similar to the bottle pictured here. The whiskey is steeped for several months, which then imparts a unique flavour into the whiskey, it is quite an acquired taste. The story is that this is used in SE Asia as an aphrodisiac; and it also has many medical uses, such as the treatment of back and muscle pain. Snake wine is sold in S.E. Asia and is mostly found in Vietnam, China and Laos. It is also available online here: Snake Wine

Meat Water – Real or Not?

Meat Water – The drink with wings

Meat water, real or not? It sounds too bizarre to be true, or does it? Their website looks convincing enough and who would go to all the trouble of marketing a product if it wasn’t real?

If you haven’t already guessed it’s actually a hoax and a great one at that, it’s already gone viral on the internet twice and is still making waves to this day. You may have already read articles about their “high efficiency survival beverage” which comes in a vast array of bizarre flavours like: beef jerky, buffalo wings, beef goulash and many more.

Till Krautkramer, the artist and photographer from New York who is the mastermind behind the meat water idea, came up with this bizarre concept back in 2008. His complete dedication to the project is what makes the product so convincing. For several years now he has pitched this product as if it were the real thing, he even offers sample tastings around the local area.

The main drive behind the idea was to raise awareness about serious worldwide issues like, ‘Not paying enough attention to water’ and ‘what may become of the world in 20 years time’. There is also more personal message about people’s busy lifestyles these days. He says people are more focused on their work than their own health, sometimes they skip a meal or eat processed food to save time.
