Here are some things the food industry is currently manifesting in the world:

Fruitcake Mountain Dew Is Here

Fruitcake-flavored Mountain Dew is starting to hit shelves for the holidays. Mountain Dew’s “Fruit Quake” will roll out nationwide by November. According to the label, it’s got a nice blast of “artificial fruitcake flavor.”

The reviews for the Fruit Quake flavor are mixed so far. One Mountain Dew super-fan said it’s even grosser than the gingerbread flavor and one said it tastes like the inside of an arts-and-crafts store.

Arby’s Releases Smoked Bourbon

Arby’s is releasing a new limited-edition Arby’s Smoked Bourbon.

Inspired by the brand’s 13-hour smoked brisket sandwich and the limited-edition real country-style rib sandwich, the booze is smoked with the same wood used to smoke their meats.
The chain says, “American oak is smoked in a patented process with hickory, mesquite, and pecan smoke from Sadler’s Smokehouse in Texas, where much of Arby’s finest meats are smoked. The oak is then placed in the bourbon, the bourbon is then WoodCraft finished by placing the smoked wood inside where it is heated and cooled to replicate the variation of temperature through the seasons. The result is a familiar smokiness and bold flavor that all Arby’s fans know and expect.”

Arby’s Smoked Bourbon will be available exclusively at ArbysSmokedBourbon.com beginning Wednesday at 10 am Mountain Time for $60.
