The Return of Stickman #1488

Have you ever noticed that the stuff that is suppose to taste like watermelon, aside from watermelon, doesn't taste like watermelon. What you have instead is this chemical concoction that was developed during the space race as some sort of Tang failure that some guy with a pocket protector thought tasted like watermelon and labeled it the same. This is the same guy who thought that Folger's instant coffee tasted like real coffee and that Carob tasted just like chocolate. Anyway, this sickly 'watermelon' flavor has been imposed on us for decades and it's time we took a stand against further advancement of this non-real flavor. Send it back into the realm bubblegum where it belongs. Watermelon flavored Oreos, bleh!

What I'm curious about is what 'other' flavors were on the docket. Just how awful did they have to be in order for 'watermelon' to come out on top? As soon as I heard this news story this strip instantly formed in my mind. I just wanted to let you know where I was coming from.
