"Flavor Tripping" Sweet/Sour Tasting Party!

  • Dec 13, 2012 · 7:00 PM
  • BJ's

For those who don't know, miracle fruit is an amazing plant from Africa. It produces these wonderful berries that have the magical power to turn sour into sweet! Actually, it's a chemical contained in the fruit that changes the taste buds' perception. This will be so much fun!


Be prepared for the fun together as we "oooh" and "aahh" .... and compare varying experiences and impressions. Miracle fruit seems to affect individuals differently, so while one person might find that a piece of pineapple is virtually inedible because it's jut too sweet, another person might find that same piece of pineapple to be the absolute "food of the god"s. The taste-change effect of the fruit tablets lasts anywhere from half an hour to an hour or longer. They are expensive little berries, but will be a blast to try as a group!It's a "Party-in-Your-Mouth"!!!

We'll have a snack to get something in our stomachs, and then sample different food and beverages; cheese, limes, lemons, grapefruit, pineapple, berries, horseradish, onion, baking chocolate, pickles, Guinness beer, sour candies and more. I will provied all the food for tating, and of course I will have the Miracle Berries, in freeze-dried tablets, that I special order.... All you need to do is Bring Your Own Beverage, I will have ice, water and tea. Feel free to bring a bottle of wine or champagne to share, it is always appreciated .... plus we can see what these taste like too!
