Mommy I want a treat ! part ...

Curiosity is something amazing.
Tom and I were walking in China Town. On our way to my favorite supermarket.
At one fruit and vegetable store we stop because there are large spiky balls screaming for our attention.
A small Asian lady was buying one of the supersized lychee lookalike fruits: Durian it is called. And yes, it's a fruit.
The flesh looks like a banana... When we asked if it tastes good, they said: it tastes like a everything tropical: banana, pineapple, mango...
We bought a slice...
For every scoop we took, we were wondering of it tasted good or bad. And like WHAT it tastes...
I thought it tasted like leek... but with a twist.
The flesh also unravels like leek... but then it also tasted a bit like something tropical... not sure what...
After we ate it, we were wondering if we liked it.
And if it was healthy...
I figured, we didnt really like it. I was happy to taste it, but not for another taste... 1 time was good enough...
Of course I looked up the fruit.
Seems the fruit is high in sugars, potassium, fat and carbs...
jezus ... fuck ...
awesomeness ...
we could have eaten 10 cupcakes and at least had a pleasant taste in our mouth than this durian... that just tastes like an off leek!
On top of that, the fruit smells, and I recite: "... its odor is best described as pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away. Despite its great local popularity, the raw fruit is forbidden from some establishments such as hotels, subways and airports, including public transportation in Southeast Asia."

we just ate a pig-shit smelling calorie bomb! yihaaa.



The Confirming Friend is not a Durian Lover... I repeat: NOT a lover
