The Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest (BLFC) is a tongue-in-cheek contest that takes place annually and is sponsored by the English Department of San José State University in San Jose, California. Entrants are invited “to compose the opening sentence to the worst of all possible novels” — that is, deliberately bad.

Enjoy these! They’re well funny!

This includes things such as TV shows, novelties, and soft drinks. Sometimes, a soft drink brand available in the Western world is available in the East in flavors we’ve never dreamed of. For example, they have over 50 flavors of Fanta in Japan–out of a total of 70-odd Fanta flavors worldwide. The flavors include Kiwifruit, Muksrat Grape, and Amino Cider!

The chaps at No Apologies! Press decided to review a stack of soft drinks from Asia. What results is some of the funniest stuff you’ve read about soft drinks.
