Bizarre Product: blk.

I love weird stuff.

I'm the girl who got a bag of dead bullfrogs and sheep eyes for Christmas one year... and was thrilled. I once collected bugs, slag and Orbitz bottles.

Imagine my glee when I found this at Hy-Vee a few days ago:



Yeah, it's water. Water with fulvic acid. Fulvic acid is apparently good for you... or at least, good for plants in some form. Ah hell, I'm fairly certain it's just a gimmick, but a cool gimmick at that. And holy moly, it's dark. When held up to a lightbulb, the bottle still looks like black plastic - no light shines through.



And it tastes like water. I know, amazing - you'd think with it being pure black that it would have some sort of flavor. Nope, just really bizarre, pure tasting water. For $1.89 it's probably not something I'm going to buy often, but I'll definitely keep some around to entertain guests.



Besides, I'm a sucker for neat packaging. Thanks Dr. Mickelson!

  2. I had it, and it had a greasy coppery taste to it, and left a film on my tongue. How weird!

  3. oh man, i totally would have purchased that too. i think one of my favorite things we have in common is our tendency to be sucked into buying predominately useless shit, like your aforementioned sludge-water. or japanese drinks sealed with marbles. -shifty eyes-
