This is Ryan with 300 words (or less) to make your Monday a little less taxing.
Last weekend, I saw my uncle at my cousin’s first communion party. He approached me with a package the size of a candy bar.
“Ryan, have you heard of Miracle Fruit?”
I had heard miracle fruit berries cause sour foods to taste sweet and vise versa. I had never had tried the berries myself or their freeze dried tablet partners.
Despite my arrogance, my uncle gave me a pack requesting to report back my experience. In response, my siblings and I recorded our first experience in A Miracle Experiment found below.
As concluded, the Miracle Fruit Tablets made sour foods (lemon juice and vinegar) taste sweet, but reduced the taste of everything else (especially cinnamon). Afterward (½ hour after tablet) I could not taste strawberry cream cheese, peanut butter and jelly, or milk well.
Miracle Fruit Tablets have been popular at food tasting events (occasionally called “Miracle Fruit Parties”) for party-goers consuming sour and bitter foods (lemons, radishes, and beer) to experience the change in taste.
After my first experience I am not a big fan, especially not knowing exactly what to eat. Instead of dramatically changing my senses, I felt they were more reduced than seduced. After more research and finding specific lists of what to try, I am willing to give it another shot though. For more info on Miracle Fruit/Miracle Fruit Tablets, check out this website below.
Also, to my weekly readers, my blog post will be late next Monday due to a weekend trip to St. Louis. Expect it Tuesday or Wednesday. =9
