Bizarre Soft Drinks

Gau Jal: made of cow urine
India's Hindu nationalist movement recently said it is in the final stages of developing a new soft drink made from cow urine. Department head Om Prakash said the drink - called "gau jal" or "cow water" - was undergoing lab tests and would be launched "very soon, maybe by the end of this year". "Don't worry, it won't smell like urine and will be tasty too," he said. "It's going to be very healthy. It won't be like carbonated drinks and would be devoid of any toxins." He insisted, however, that it would be able to compete with the likes of Coca Cola and Pepsi.
Placenta Drink
Placenta 10000 is a jelly drink. With placenta. Pig placenta. 10,000 mg worth! Placenta is said to have regenerative properties, especially concerning beauty, and can help with dieting as well. At about $8 per drink, it's expensive, but Japanese aren't exactly known for sacrificing their health and looks for a couple of bucks either. If 10,000 mg/serving just doesn't cut it for your placenta-loving pallet, they have a Placenta 400,000 concentrate as well.
Beer + Milk = Bilk
A brewery in Hokkaido, Japan, recently released a low-malt beer using milk. The idea came from the son of a liquor store who is in the dairy farm industry. After having a problem of discarding milk, he proposed the local brewery to produce the milk beer. As one-third of beer is milk, it is the good way to help local farmers. The taste of beer is like a taste of fruits and it goes well with sweets. Because of its fruity flavor, Bilk hopes to be popular among women.
NEEDS: made of cheese

Care for a glass of cheese? This new cheese drink comes in 3 different flavors; plain, blueberry, and yuzu citrus. They use a special process to cut down on the sweet taste of the flavored drinks. It is said to have a taste similar to yogurt, but with a cheesy aftertaste.
Mother's Milk
And now, for something close to the heart... meet Mother's Milk, the breast-tasting drink ever. Is there anything in the world more wholesome, more natural, more life-giving than mother's milk? Is there anything in the world that would make you drink it from a store bought carton? NO on both counts!
Now here's a marketing hit: a nonalcoholic "beer" for kids that's selling like crazy. The beverage, whose main ingredient is the Latin American plant Guarana, sells for around 380 yen per 330-milliliter bottle. The bottles themselves are colored brown to make the drink look even more like its more potent counterpart. The drink started out as Guarana, a cola beverage that used to be sold at the Shitamachi-ya restaurant in Fukuoka, run by 39-year-old Yuichi Asaba. Asaba renamed the sweet carbonated drink Kidsbeer, a move that made it an instant hit.

The only one I would even consider drinking is the kids beer!

Somehow, a nice bottle of Coke sounds so good right now.
