look up any word, like eiffel tower:
Named after the "barely a food" item, the vienna sausage. Used to indicate something is good the first time you try it, but it progressingly gets worse and worse... usually after the second or third instance.
This food has the vienna effect, first bite is good, second bite is ok, third bite is eh.... And the rest after that are nasty.
