@Greed the Avaricious, there is the reference that immediately came to mind.
@Greed the Avaricious, is that a jojo reference? Here, have my upvote
@Greed the Avaricious,
Kakyoin wants to know your location
I'd tongue punch it so hard it would shatter
@I grade all memes, not only am I kinkshaming you, but I am also calling the ASPCA
@Swift Justice, RSPCA
FACT CHECK TIME:
-The substance in question is called Castoreum, which is the dried secretions of a beaver's anal glands after they are harvested and cured.
---Additional Context: beavers have a cloaca (a common opening), not an anus, so calling them "anal glands" is like calling the sweat glands in your butt crack "butt glands" (they are still just sweat glands)
-It's incredibly difficult to harvest, so it ends up being about 70-100$/lb
-A cheaper substitute is Castor Oil
-Anyway, it is NOT a *replacement* for vanilla, raspberry, etc.; it's a flavor ENHANCER, much the way MSG makes food taste more meaty or NaCl (table salt) in general makes food taste more like itself; castoreum is just good at enhancing sweet flavors
-it cannot be used in flavor extracts without that flavor extract also saying something like "and other natural flavors"
But the main takeaway is: no, that raspberry-flavored lollipop probably doesn't have castoreum in it unless it's an expensive lollipop...

How about that fact that hard candy is used to flavor our spit before we drink it. That's weird right
It's actually a vanilla flavor replacement from the beaver.
@Al Harrington, I just can’t understand how it’s cheaper to get the artificial flavor from an endangered mammal’s shjtter than from a non-endangered tree’s bark.
@A Deformed Penis, vanilla flavor is actually from the seed pod of a tree iirc (might be a vine? I don't remember). And vanilla can actually be insanely expensive. In 2016 there was a shortage of vanilla and the price of the beans jumped to over 400$ per kilogram (just under 200$ per pound). EDIT: some ice cream shops in my area that made their own without extract had to stop offering vanilla ice cream. Also I just checked and apparently in 2018 the price of vanilla bean/pods was over 600$/kg, so it's gotten even higher.
However, you're right. Castoreum is very expensive and time-consuming to get, so it's not generally used except in fancy stuff. Also, point of fact, it's not a vanilla/flavor replacement, but a flavor enhancer (like salt with savory foods).
Did this need to be a gif? Yes. Yes it did.
Well... this'll have to do.

Let's ask ourselves this.. Who found out beaver anuses would make good raspberry artificial flavoring?
Armin looks much better today
I eat beaver and I eat anus so I don’t see the problem
Eat that ass like a raspberry
