Honey Boo Boo

Experiments with Coke

10/1/2012 10:22 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

100112_booboo_splash

Honey Boo Boo overcame a real bad coke problem this weekend -- barely surviving a special taste test at the Coca-Cola factory in Atlanta ... that nearly made her puke her brains out.

7-year-old Alana "HBB" Thompson visited the Coke factory with her family yesterday, and while she was there ... an employee suggested they all try a special flavor from Italy called "Beverly." Big mistake.

"Beverly" has a famously bitter aftertaste due to its quinine content -- the same ingredient as tonic water -- and Boo Boo did NOT like it one bit, nearly upchucking all over the Coke factory floor.

Honey Boo Boo's mom June tried Beverly too -- and said it tasted like "ear wax."

The salad factory full of healthy snacks and exercise must've been closed.

why are you giving this horrible little family any attention TMZ? Worse then the kardashians. She may still only be a child but she should be killed.

Your headline is messed up. Just because this family is dysfunctional doesn't mean you need to go to that level.

Apparently (Wiki) only about .0025 % of Americans that try this stuff like it. Poor little freak-child was set up. I kind of wish she did throw up.

So I'm guessing that Fat Girl Sr. has been tasting ear wax?

Are you fricking kidding me? They gave a child quinine? The retching was probably an allergic reaction! Too bad the whole family didn't drink a few liters.

Who cares what these under educated hilly billies like or dislike? The fact that people give them attention for this behavior, what's wrong with America?

So mom knows what ear wax taste like. Obviously everything she comes across goes directly into her mouth.

If it makes them vomit, the whole fat piggy family should be drinking it.
Why are the welfare types always so fat? I know he used to work but now he is DISABLED like she is so we will be donating monthly disability checks to their household for the rest of their lives.
90% of injuries heal nicely unless they are worker's comp............where 90% never heal and disability is filed for. That is a fact although the study was done on back injuries.
