We know, it's not something you expect to hear... Mmmm, this lime is SO sweet... this mustard is delicious! But we heard it today. We got a sample of an upcoming product - Miracle Fruit Tablets. If you haven't heard of Miracle Fruit
, it's supposed to change the taste of sour or bitter foods change to something much sweeter. When we got the shipment, we naturally had to try it out.
First, let a half a tablet dissolve on the tongue. It should really be your own tongue though. Dissolving it on this guy's tongue won't help you any.
Next, eat weird food and see how the taste changes. If we had planned better, we would have gotten more vegetables like brussels sprouts and other bitter or sour stuff, but we had to make do with what we had around the office including limes, oranges, cherries, apples, soy sauce and duck sauce, as well as ketchup and mustard. We also tried coffee and hummus.
The consensus? "Weird!" "Cool" and "OMG That tastes sweet
!" was heard by most of our taste testers. The mustard was a surprise hit - it tasted more like honey mustard sauce than plain yellow mustard. Limes were sweet like candy, and strong black coffee lost its bitterness. Now that the experiment is over, we're all experiencing an odd aftertaste, and a strange craving for mustard sandwiches. Looking for Miracle Fruit for yourself? We'll have it available very soon, keep your eyes peeled.Update:
