I should make a food or drink product and trademark the slogan "It's delicious". And go after anyone who dare describe their product as "delicious".

You can. But they would have to use the EXACT slogan to describe the same type of product to infringe on it.

If you can also trademark a brand like "Apple" then I guess there should be no problem trademarking something that's at least a few words long.

Slogans are usually generic though: the aforementioned "just do it", bmw's "do you like driving", "ideas for life", "connecting people"...

Then again it doesn't look like that guy had an actual registered trademark on that.

the rarity or complexity of the phrase doesn't matter for a trademark.

They can't sue people for using it in daily speak or even other companies for using it in marketing material(unless it's very obvious bolded and such and don't fit it). However if someone where to make marketing that said "I am the best burger" or something, then they absolutely could.
