I don't think it would do much for the turkey KE, but the cranberry sauce would be amazing.

Chopstix, what were your favorite things to eat on it? Did you taste anything outside of fruit that might not be an obvious choice?

Tatt, you have me laughing and reminiscing all at the same time.

I've bookmarked that site, GB. Thanks!

Great idea for Christmas gifts for people "who have everything" (although I would like to try them myself!)

I was thinking the same thing Lee. Definitely the type of thing for someone who has everything.

DW kept on thinking it must not be legal. It seems like it would be an illegal drug, but it is not. It is completely legal.

GB, everything just tasted saccharine sweet so, personally, it didn't taste too pleasant since I have an aversion to very sweet food. It was a novel experience however and ought to be shared with other people as it makes for lots of giggling and fun. I remember trying it on sour soup (think Thai Tom Yum Kung or Chinese Hot and Sour Soup) and it tasted sweet too!

My friend's mom who has a Miracle Fruit plant uses it when eating the less expensive pomelos imported from Taiwan. Compared to more expensive Thai pomelos which are moist and sweet, Taiwanese pomelo, while juicy, is kinda sour. This way she saves some money.

I wonder if they deliver those to the UK, or if there is anywhere to buy them that does deliver to here. It would also be pretty cool to buy the seeds and grow the plant. I really want to try it!
