Flavours for The Cards....?

Thread originally posted on the Aeclectic Tarot Forum on 16 Aug 2001, and now archived in the Forum Library.



Kiama  16 Aug 2001 
Well, in the 'decks' section of this forum, we were discussing which deck we would take with us on a deserted island, and I thought that an edible one would be good, so I didn't starve to death. Then, in 'Firelite Firune Teller' Melvis was talking about a feely velvet deck, and I suggested why not use all the senses... So, to start with....

For as many cards as you can think of, what flavour would you asociate with them? This is what I think...

Lovers: Whipped cream and strawberries... ;)
Empress: Pomegranate
King of Pentacles: A good, strong wine
10 of Pentacles: Freshly baked bread
Devil: Death By Chocolate gateau....
High Priestess: Apple (Of knowledge)
Page of Cups: Any fish
Hermit: That stuff Yoda from Star Wars eats...
Wheel of Fortune: Tutti Fruiti icecream
World: Chocolate. Need I explain?
Hanged Man: Upside down pudding, or alternately, Nothing, as per suggestion from Odin in the Havamal... "Nobody gave me food, nor gave me drink..."
10 Swords: The cold taste of steel

Um... I've lost inspiration. I know this post is silly, but it's fun too!

Kiama

Devil would be cinnamon for me. I saw your post over there, too. My first thought was "oh how funny!" my next thought was "eeewwww, the cards would be all sticky and you could really only use them once." i don't think i'd want people licking my tarot deck while i was giving them a reading. LOL (pictures friend sucking on the Lovers card) actually, it's STILL funny!

Rhiannon :)

hee hee. this is great.

okay, how about pumpkin pie for the 7 of Pentacles and "sparkling spring water" for the Star..... 


nexyjo  16 Aug 2001 
actually, i'll just take the entire deck in milk chocolate... 


StarShine  16 Aug 2001 
I'm with Nexy, only maybe for variety we could split it up. The Higher Arcana could be Semi-Sweet, Swords could be white chocolate, Cups could me milk chocolate, Pentacles could be a rich Godiva chocolate, and wands could be buttercream chocolate! 


.dc  17 Aug 2001 
i like the idea for an all chocolate and it's variations of deck. however, i'd eat that deck way to fast.

mmm...pumpkin pie. =)

i dunno what i could really contribute to this. other than maybe attempting the same style thing with alcohol... or drinks. and even then i don't drink enuf different drinks to come up with 78 cards.

ah well, leave the cooking to the cooks i suppose. if i were on a desert island i'd starve. plain and simple.

blessed be,
.dc

Now why didn't I, in all my teenage girl capacity, think of a chocolate deck? Mind you, I said the World should taste of it, cuz choc is the world to me...

Maybe I should go find seomwhere that makes plastic food moulds... And make them into the cardsof the Tarot. They could be a whole new novelty Christmas/Yule gift for Tarot lovers everywhere!

Now presenting... The Chocolate Tarot! In Tarot stores everywhere!

Kiama 


Rhiannon  17 Aug 2001 
Moving along with .dc's idea for alcoholic beverage flavored cards. I apologize to the underaged...

High Priestess should be something sort of creamy, maybe a White Russian.

Something fruity for the Empress, maybe a Strawberry Daquiri or a Banana Lover.

The Lovers? Body shots of tequila, of course! ;)

Emperor - a pint of Guiness. No question.

Hermit - Jack Daniels... or maybe Southern Comfort.

Hanged Man - maybe an Irish Coffee (caffeine for that "enlightened" feeling)

Magician - (obscure here) Jedi Mind Trick

Devil - Goldschlagger or cinnamon After Shock.

The Kings are bourbon, the Queens wine and the Knights Budweiser or something,
and the Pages could all be Shirley Temples or virgin Daquiris. They aren't old enough to be drinks yet. ;)

Thanks for the great inspiration!
Rhiannon :) (who now looks like a lush! lol) 


Kiama  17 Aug 2001 
Maybe the Pages should be Alcopops?

The 'Scratch and Sniff Tarot' ??

{WOW! That Hermit could sure use a bath!}


:-D :-D :-D 


StarShine  19 Aug 2001 
ROFLMAO Tarotbear. Scratch and Sniff! What a hoot. All I keep thinking of is the smell of Sulfur for the Devil and your stinky hermit!!! Too Funny!

As for our Resident Lush Rhiannon ;p, don't feel bad. After last weekend, my Honey has taken to calling me Otis from Andy Griffith! So, when can we hook up for a drink? 


Mojo  19 Aug 2001 
Interesting thread.

Let's see, the Queen of Wands would be, um.... um.... oh nevermind, this is a G rated forum. 


Rhiannon  19 Aug 2001 
Ok, Mojo: SHAME ON YOU!

Tarotbear: the hermit has a shower stall in the back of the cave. thank the gods/goddesses for indoor plumbing.

Starshine: I'm available usually early in the mornings, late mornings, early afternoonsh, late affernoonsh, evnngs.... whoa type is sluuurrrring guesh i'd bedderr go now....

Rhiannon :) *sings* "one bourbon, one scotch, one beer... I said hey bartender!" LOL 


truthsayer  19 Aug 2001 
for some reason, i think of the world as being pizza with everything on it. the sun would be orange juice. (you know--florida, the sunshine state--oranges). 


.dc  20 Aug 2001 
Rhiannon,

Yes! I love your suggestions... i have a few requests:

we need to figure out the perfect card for a Mind Eraser.
Two of Cups -- Sex on the Beach or a French Kiss,

Temperance-- Flaming Red Zombie

um, anything else we can add?

blessed be,
.dc 


StarShine  20 Aug 2001 
I Know! Let's all get together and have a Come as Your Favorite/Drink Your Favorite Tarot Card Party! I will come as the Fool and I will be drinking straight Rumplemintz! Trust me, a few of those and I will be completely in Fool Mode! Maybe I could come as the Six of Swords and Drink Captain Morgain's Rum.....StarShine sings 8) "Let's all set sail with Captain Morgan...tho we'll never see dry land" 


.dc  21 Aug 2001 
kewlness on the party idea...wear your favorite costume/card.

drink the drink and roleplay (we need to get those tarot stories back folks!) and have fun.

of course, my poison of choice is kahula/jaegger...so i ask, what the heck type of card is that reflecting? the multiple personality card? 7 of cups/masks...

hmm.
blessed be,
.dc 


StarShine  21 Aug 2001 
KALUA/JAEGGER......TOGETHER??????

Gee, I don't know. Maybe the 4 of Cups. Dude looks like he's about to hurl on that one. I know I would drinking that mix. Is it good? I have never heard of that before!

Party On!!!!!!!!!! 


Rhiannon  21 Aug 2001 
Resident Lush responds:

Actually .dc there is Kahlua in a White Russian for the High Priestess. As for the other I have no idea, we haven't picked a card for that yet. ;)

How does everyone feel about a Midori Sour for the Tower? It's sort of like a sour ball candy... I'll come as that!

I am reminded of someone on the old forum mentioning a tarot margarita....yum!

Rhiannon :) "party, party, party!"

heck yeah it's good... my poison of choice. and it doesn't make me sik. i hate the taste of jaegger and kahula seperately... but together they almost have a canceling out effect.

hey now... i love midori sours... what is this a conspiracy to name the DRINKS I LOVE to crappy cards... =)

and what you mean we've already got kahula in the cards? since when did we decide that only single types of liquer go on one card. i mean, there cannot really be 78 single types of alcohol alone. i say we assign drink names only and allow the drinks mixes to be spread throughout the cards. just my thoughts. =)

i vote we don't assign a drink to the card but rather the downfall of what the drinks do to the Tower, the sikness and pukiness. midori sour may work for the 3 of swords as it is bittersweet but a it does the job in a pinch (and this one won't get me drunk).

*burp*
.dc
toga! TOGA! toga...um, well, yeah. party on dudes. 


StarShine  21 Aug 2001 
Well, If the two come together better than each one is individually, May I suggest the Chariot for your Kalua/Jaegger mix? The Light and Dark even fit the illustration on most Decks.

hmmm...the chariot. i sorta like that. especially given that the vertigo tarot's version is dark but light as well.

so much to consider, good thing we aren't all in the same room drinking... or we'd prolly um...

blessed burps,
.dc 


KyrieSummer  21 Aug 2001 
Okay, I'm in! :)

Ten of cups - Cassia liquor

King of swords - vodka, ice cold, neat

Moon - A good pale ale

I'm not sure, but was thinking of the woman of wands for a bloody mary, with a hint of clamato juice

two of cups - now this one seems like sparkling water to me

and body shots of tequila - makes me think back to the days of college - I was leaning towards those being the page of cups.

Sun - a nice nut brown ale

Food

sun - oranges

five of wands - stringy beef

nine of pentacles - nuts

ten of pentacles - a feast! 


SafireMyst  22 Aug 2001 
Ok, when I first started reading this thread, I immediately thought of Cinnamon Altoids for the Magician, but then Jeagermeister for the Magi seemed more appropriate... something to do with the antlers. Movie popcorn for the 7 of cups. Salt for the 5 of cups. Butterscotch discs for The Sun. 


SafireMyst  22 Aug 2001 
............and which card for a Mud Slide... there must be one. The Tower? 


Kiama  22 Aug 2001 
Re: tarot stories... Damn. I wish I had had time to print a copy out before th eforums went down, cuz the one I wrote (The really long one) was typed on the seat of my pants, and I don't really remember it. Maybe I'll try some new Tarot stories....

Kiama
