Seven Gross Blended Drinks (in Honor of Jamba Juice's Cheeseburger Chill)

Jamba Juice recently debuted a joke commercial featuring the "Cheeseburger Chill." The ad was intended to mock McDonald's for entering the smoothie business. The intended message was: We don't go around making smoothies out of cheeseburgers, so stick to what you're good at, Mickie D's! 

Well... what's so bad about a cheeseburger smoothie? As it turned out -- nothing, as we discovered after blending a burger. It was actually kinda tasty!

After the experiment, we couldn't stop --  risking our taste buds was just too thrilling! 

So we set out to find other blended goodies... but got more than we bargained for. Hence, the following list. Note: we wimped out couldn't find all the ingredients to replicate these drinks, so no taste buds were harmed in the making of this post.

The Top Seven Gross Blended Drinks 

7. Cactus Smoothie -- Composed mostly of cactus and orange juice, this smoothie was created by someone from a Mexican produce store in Texas. They ask that you take a towering plant and blend it into a pure green liquid. Garnish with a lime to distract you from the spiky flavor.

Check out the rest after the jump.
