Miracle Fruit

This is the trippiest, coolest food thing I’ve heard of in a long, long time. And in case it wasn’t obvious, I read a lot about food every day and like to think I’m reasonably on top of trends.

If you eat a miracle berry, it makes everything taste different–often sweet–for about an hour afterwards. The berries aren’t cheap but they are safe and they have people eating lemons and drinking vinegar like they’re candy and soda. (No reports on whether or not these folks had indigestion afterwards…) They seem to be perfectly safe.

Go read the story for more. The video is also worth watching.

I’m seriously tempted to buy some of these berries and host a miracle berry party. What do you think?
