GMA’s Michael Strahan tries out bizarre new trend live on-air and blames co-host Robin Roberts for unpleasant surprise

GOOD Morning America’s Michael Strahan got an unpleasant surprise when he tried a bizarre new trend live on-air.

The taste test comes after Starbucks launched a new drink line featuring an unusual ingredient.

The retailers Oleato coffee line consists of coffee drinks that contain olive oil.

Live on-air the host tried a few sips of the unusual drink which was enough to convince some viewers not to try it themselves.

Michael looked nervous before trying the coffee trend that has divided fans of the beverage.

Just before picking up the milky coffee, he said: “Robin told me not to because she wanted it.”

Co-host Robin Roberts admired her colleague’s attempt to delay tasting the drink and replied: “So not true…nice try!”

Michael toasted the drink and said: “Robin this is for you.”

He smacked his lips a couple of times before concluding: “It tastes like I need some burrata and tomatoes with it.

“Yeah…You taste the olive oil.”

The host noted that you can see the olive oil in the coffee which was unpleasant.

“I think visually seeing it is throwing me off a little bit,” he said.

When offered more, the host quickly replied: “No! I’m okay.

“A few sips is all I needed to know what I’m going to do when I go to order this drink or another one.

“But if you want to try it then you try it, figure it out…tastes buds are different.”

When viewers were asked if they would try the new drink, the majority said no.

One wrote on Instagram: “No!!! Olive oil goes well with onions, garlic bread, etc. But not on my coffee.”

Another added: “No thnx!! I’ll put it in a pan with some pasta.”

A number of people have questioned why Starbucks have started adding oil to their new drinks range.

Starbucks founder Howard Schultz was inspired by the espresso bars in Milan when he first launched his successful brand.

Last year, the founder went to Sicily to explore the Italian love of olive oil and had a spoonful of Partanna next to his coffee everyday.

He then decided to mix the two together and was “stunned” at the difference it made to his drink.

Schultz said: “I was absolutely stunned at the unique flavor and texture when the Partanna extra virgin olive oil was infused into Stabucks coffee.

“In both hot and cold coffee beverages, what it produced was an unexpected, velvety, buttery flavor that enhanced the coffee and lingers beautifully on the palate.”

Despite the coffee connoisseur’s joy at his creation, viewers of GMA said “I don’t think I need to try this” and “it’s a hard pass from me.”

Michael’s reaction to the drink entertained viewers who said he is “so funny” and his “face says it all.”

Others said that they felt “sorry” for the host for having to present the segment.

The current drinks in the Oleato line include the Oleato Caffe Latte, Oleato Iced Cortado, Oleato Golden Foam Cold Brew, Oleato Deconstructed, and the Oleato Golden Foam Espresso Martini.
