Flash Fiction Friday #4! (...sort of)

I know I'm pretty late to the party, but I'm hoping I'm fashionably late ;)
So, I don't have a piece for the Friday before last (that prompt is giving me a hard time for some reason). However, I do have something for this past Friday! Better late than never, right? :)

Anyhoo, this was the prompt: 

And this is my piece: 

Cassie scanned the shelves, admiring the rows of multicolored jars and bottles. The smaller ones contained just one serving of food or drink; the bigger the jar the bigger the serving size.
She selected a small blue jar and took a cautious sip. As the liquid rushed over her tongue she tasted everything at once - a blueberry muffin, burnt buttered toast, and hazelnut coffee. As usual, it was overwhelming at first, but after a moment all the different tastes blended together deliciously.
If she ever made it back to Earth this was one of the things she'd miss about Blythe.

  2. Very cool concept! I kind of really appreciate the fact that the toast was burnt. I'm really having fun getting to know this alien world!

  3. What a cool concept! I'm curious if the aliens use these, or they made them specifically for the humans. Also, I'm glad she found her coffee :D
