In what has to be a whole new use of the term “au jus,” this roast beef bath is designed to relax you and make you hungry at the same time. Amazon store Gears Out is offering a World Famous Roast Beef Sandwich Reality Bath Soak and it might be the weirdest food scented product we’ve ever seen.
It’s not the smell, which according to the description is brown sugar and fig. That doesn’t exactly remind us of a roast beef sandwich, but it does seem like a pleasing bath scent. Which is great, because do you really want to spend $18 to smell like the inside of an Arby’s for the rest of the night?
The bath water itself seems like it would be the most roast beef reminiscent, with the brown crystals creating what probably looks nothing like real au jus sauce, but is just brown enough to make you think of it.
The sellers note that: “This is the perfect bath soak to give as a housewarming gift, birthday present, silly white elephant exchange gift, stocking stuffer, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift or just because someone freaks over roast beef sandwiches.”
There’s only one review on the product so far, but it’s a definite thumbs up from the standpoint of a gag gift. “Perfect for secret Santa/white elephant. I laughed so hard when my recipient opened it up. Wish I could’ve seen how it smelled (brown sugar/fig sounds awesome) but alas.”
The makers of the roast beef bath salts want you to know that this product is only for bath use; you should not actually use the roast beef bath water to dip anything but your body in. They include the instructions “DO NOT EAT” in the description and I’m so glad we got that cleared up.
