Dear internet. I am not being judgemental. But please explain this to me.

    Tomato juice? Yeah, it’s vile.

    Nothing wrong with the name – “Beef Tomatoes”/”Beefsteak tomatoes” are a particular variety of high-quality, large, flavourful tomatoes, currently out of fashion due to being hard to grow commercially.

    I find that strangely appealing

    I once ordered a bloody mary in a bar in oxford which came with bits of shredded beef in it and it was probably the best cocktail I’ve ever had.

    see also Beef & Tomato pot noodle, possibly the canonical pot noodle flavour…

    (also take 1 tsp bovril + 1 squirt tomato puree, add hot water! actually i might do that right now…)

    So the name doesn’t actually mean beef tomato, it means beef broth and tomato juice. Interesting!

    It just tastes like bolognese sauce surely?

    It is odd in some ways because this just makes Clamato seem canon, when of courser the first time you see clamato, you are shocked an appalled.

    Apparently the taste for Beefamato has waned and it is near impossible to get these days.

    @7: “It just tastes like bolognese sauce surely?”
    Only if you added milk. BOLOGNESE HAS MILK IN IT.

    I would totally drink this warm but cold it looks revolting.

    As a result of this I have been singing “cla-MAY-to, cla-MAH-to, cla-MAY-to, cil-AN-tro, let’s callllll the whooole thing offff” all day, so, well done me!

    If this is in the chopped tomatoes/pasta sauce aisle = ok. If it is in the drinks aisle gawd ‘elp us if there’s a war. Too close to the dreaded meatshake.
