    You can always do this...

    Roomie, "check out my holiday soda! Want one?"
    You, "sure!"
    Pour yourself a full glass/open a can
    Take a sip
    Quickly dump soda out. Upend the can over a plant, dump the whole glass into a sink, the intent is to give the impression you can't get it away from you fast enough. Spitting out the sip you took is optional.
    Exclaim, "yuck! That is absolutely awful! Who would make that? How can they sell it? No wonder you sere pushing me to take one, you're trying to get rid of it!"

    That's actually fairly close to how I responded to one of those holiday sodas and I was being totally honest (and I like good soda).

    For bonus points you can spend the next few weeks laughing about "Now with extra Holiday Chemicals! " in a faux tv ad voice and the like. If you dumped the soda over a plant, make a show of periodically checking to see if it has died.

    A variation of that works on mac n cheeze too, but to do it right you must regurgitate the food back onto your plate. Tricky but it can be done.

    Yeah I'm an awful person.

    Why are people like that? Is your roomie actually getting a rise out of you? If so, don't bite. When your roomie offers this stuff, counter offer with some lovely rare cooked liver! Share and share alike, right?

    Why do you continue to live with this person?
    If I just said LOL, I lied. Do or do not. There is no try.

    Spit it out overdramatically like Allen did with the wine an episode or two ago on Two and a Half Men.

    There are numerous variations on a Spit-take that could work, but that can feel tacked on.

    I know someone who, when given a brandied cherry, just kinda opened his mouth and let the bitten-into cherry fall on the table. Plop. He then proceeded to rinse and spit, saying something along the lines of, "my god that's disgusting..." It worked, too...I didn't give him any more of my homemade brandied cherries. (Which were quite good...according to me and MOST of the people I shared them with.)
