Talk:Suudsu

I tried this with 2% milk this morning. There wasn't as much mixing of flavor as I had hoped, so it was pretty much just drinking a glass of milk and then eating a bag of gummy bears. It does have a very pleasing appearance from the colorful gummy bears pressing against the sides of an otherwise white glass. --128.113.151.61 17:11, 25 October 2005 (UTC)

Well if you try it with skim milk in a clear glass - Pure genius! Seriously though, it's gewd. And it looks like the picture. -- DBK!
Boy, does this remind me of the Piemonade easter egg at the end of other days. If TBC do this type of real life "some random foodstuffs in a clear glass" easter egg in another sbemail, I think we could safely add it to the running gags list. Your thoughts? —THE PAPER PREEEOW 14:10, 26 October 2005 (UTC)
Well, there is the glass of caramels that you can drink with this complete breakfast, from Cheat Commandos...O's. Homestar Coderhomestar-coder-sig.gif 15:39, 26 October 2005 (UTC)
Sounds like a good idea to me. -- DBK! 16:49, 26 October 2005 (UTC)

Yeah, technically I tried it, too. I was eating these Krabby Patty candy sandwiches and then I just said to myself, "Hey, why not make Suudsu? After all, that was my favorite Strong Bad Email." It wasn't exactly the same, I was obviously using a substitute for gummi bears (I'm not the kind of guy to stock up on gummi bears) and I used 1% milk, not skim (I could be drinking whole if I wanted to). It was truly amazing.

Actually, I did that on New Years Eve. I was hanging with all my friends after the countdown, watching some country band on the telebision. The homies had some, too, and they liked it as much as I did. It was G-E-W-D, gewd. You wouldn't believe what an impact bedtime story's had on my life.

Hey, just as long as you don't take to snorting roach foggers. That would be negative impact. —AbdiViklas 20:55, 15 January 2006 (UTC)

I'll say! Even I'm not stupid enough to do that.

Update — Just had some more Suudsu. My pals came over with some stale gummi bears from Valentine's Day 2004, and you know what the first thing to pop up in my head was. It wasn't nearly as good as my first batch, though - it took me so long to chew those gummi bears that the milk was reduced to cheese when I was done. Not to mention, now I have gummi bears stuck in my teeth, which will be great when I'm brushing my teeth. It was worth it just to have Suudsu, but I'm gonna have a bad time tonight, gonna have a bad time tonight!

In short, I need to go buy some good gummi bears. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

Blech... DEFINITELY not nice. Especially as a before-bed thing. Woke up next morning and found a gummi head stuck to my tongue. --Nekromans 08:34, 25 January 2006 (UTC)

How could anyone dislike pure genius? Honestly, I can't get enough of this stuff. Whenever I come accross some gummi bears or anything remotely similar, I just halfta make it. I had some Jujyfruits at the movies yesterday, and I was gonna make some Suudsu, but it just didn't work out. Darth Katana X (discussionitem_icon.gif user.gif mail_icon.gif)

Kudzu/Suudsu

The name bears strong resemblance to a vinelike plat, kudzu, that'sd infesting much of Georgia. TBC live there, you know.

You know what also sounds similar to something else? "Coins'n'cents" and "COINCIDENCE." --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 04:16, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

Hey, Just saying what I sees.

Yeah, okay, I was a little overly-sarcastic in my reply. I'm sorry. But I don't think there's any reference here. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 04:27, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, not to scare you away on your very first edit, Nightly-Living Eric. But I'm in NC, amidst plenty of kudzu, and can say it didn't spring immediately to my mind. You're not the only one to have thought so, though. —04:38, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Er, didn't Eric put that on the article page? I know it was an IP, but the wording here is quite similar, with all the same salient points. — It's dot com 05:01, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
And both that IP and NotLE created a "$1" page... --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 05:02, 9 November 2005 (UTC)
Yeah, I noticed the similarity, but preferred not to assume. If the link was to his own edit, he would notice that I also reverted it immediately after. —AbdiViklas 06:01, 9 November 2005 (UTC)

5-month old suudsu

Where do you think the suudsu was sitting for those five months? Fridge? Basement? Kitchen counter? When I leave milk out for a week or so it turns into a solid, stinky chunk. Jecowa 20:15, 30 March 2006 (UTC)

It looks to me like somebody drank the milk or something. Thunderbird 02:26, 31 March 2006 (UTC)
That would explain the lack of coagulated milk chunk. If they drank all the milk, then can it still be considered suudsu? It's more like a 5-month-old glass of gummi bears that were at one time soaked in skim milk. Jecowa 09:08, 31 March 2006 (UTC)

Redirect

This discussion was moved here from Talk:suudsu before that page was turned into a redirect to this one:
Actually, caps-based redirects aren't necessary, are they? —AbdiViklas 20:54, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
Right. Especially since Suudsu is a proper noun, I think. - KookykmanImage:kookysig.gif(t)(c)(r)
Strong Bad typed it as "suudsu" at least once in the email. Lowercase article names do not automatically redirect to their capitalized form (unless you are using the search box, which is actually the opposite of WP, from what I understand). — It's dot com 21:28, 31 October 2005 (UTC)
{KING OF TOWN: Whoops, you lost me.} What does WP stand for? (And you're right, I was using the search box's "Go" button to test; when I type, say, "the denzel" into the address bar it doesn't work.) —AbdiViklas 21:32, 31 October 2005 (UTC)

Remark

Currently, the following remark exists: It's not revealed if the concoction is a drink or a foodstuff. When made in the real world, it's impossible to drink it as suggested, since the gummy bears sink to the bottom of the glass, leaving only the milk to be drunk. The gummy bears must be fished out of the bottom of the glass with a spoon, afterwards. I fail to find an instance where it is suggested that you drink it. And anyway, I find this remark rather lackluster altogether (and unencyclopedic) and suggest that we remove it. I would have done so already, but it's been here forever. Agree/disagree? OptimisticFool 15:52, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

yeah, seems too nitpicky. I'll go ahead and remove it. — Defender1031*Talk 17:07, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

Recipe

Clearly the email does not show the actual method of making Suudsu. As Strong Bad is describing it, it shows a nearly-full glass of milk having gummi bears added without any displacement. Try that at home, and you'll be crying over spilled milk. The image at the end seems to suggest that you (nearly) fill the entire glass with gummi bears and then pour milk over it to fill the glass. Though the page has gone through periodic adustments in its history to reach the current 1 part gummi bears, 1 part milk ratio, it has never been discussed. Am I alone in seeing that the glass is at least 3/4 full of gummi bears? And should we really even list a specific recipe beyond Strong Bad's "skim milk, gummi bears, pure genius"? OptimisticFool 15:52, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

I can't remember where i saw a similar discussion, but the "recipe" was removed in the end. I'll go ahead and remove that too. — Defender1031*Talk 17:07, 22 October 2007 (UTC)

What Makes Suusdu So Secretive

I am pretty "amazed" at how Suudsu really works, but shouldn't there be a "secret formula" to the substance of the dextrose/fructose combination you call Suudsu a deep, dark secret? -Umläut76 19:34, 22 November 2008 (UTC)

Who called it a secret? It's just gummi bears in milk. --Belthazar 01:57, 23 November 2008 (UTC)
