I think I see where you're going with this now. It makes some sense to me. Although, I wouldn't remove some flavor entirely. Having everything be "mysterious" is just too generic to me. Certainly have the icon be grey until identified, then have it be an appropriate color. As an earlier post suggested, the unidentified flavor could instead of being gloopy green or speckled gold, just gloopy or speckled, or some other words without color could be used.

Well, we can do you blood and love without the rhetoric, and we can do you blood and rhetoric without the love, and we can do you all three concurrent or consecutive. But we can't give you love and rhetoric without the blood. Blood is compulsory. They're all blood, you see.”
