The Great Durian Challenge
The southeast Asian fruit durian has sensory descriptions which range from:
“…A rich custard highly flavoured with almonds gives the best general idea of it, but there are occasional wafts of flavour that call to mind cream-cheese, onion-sauce, sherry-wine, and other incongruous dishes.”
” …pig-shit, turpentine and onions, garnished with a gym sock. It can be smelled from yards away.”
Of course, MSLK needed to put this to the test with:
The Great Durian Challenge.
Following Emil’s lead (being that he’s our resident southeast Asian and therefore exempt from the challenge), we ordered a glass of durian juice.
Here was our reactions:
Katie: “Not too bad.”
Claudia: “No…no…..no…. I do not like this at all.”
Sheri: “@#*&^#$ this!”
Marc: “C’mon… this is a joke, right? Where’s Ashton Kutcher?”
