That's VERY interesting! It would certainly be a fun experiment and IC might be interested - they did mention making a foam out of it!

That is really cool. I would LOVE to try it. I don't think I will be spending $90 to try it though, but if I ever have the opportunity and not have to spend that much then I think it would be really fun.

OK I tried it. Or I should say I am in the process of trying it. Man it is weird, in a very cool way.

The first thing I did was take a shot of white vinegar. It tastes exactly like vinegar except instead of being tart it is sweet like sugar.

Next up was a lime. It tasted like the lime was dipped in sugar. Same with tomatoes. Lemons taste like lemonade. Granny smith apples are so delicious.

Grapefruit is the most delicious grapefruit you have ever had. Pickles are amazing.

Salt and vinegar chips taste like candy.

My favorite thing so far (no surprise here) is BEER. I had a Guiness and a Sierra Nevada Stout. Both were sweet without being too sweet. The amazing thing to me was that it seemed to bring out the flavor of the beer more than when I just normally drink it.

I did not get the actual berries themselves. I got the tables which are made from the berries and cornstarch. I went that route just because it was cheaper. I got 10 tablets for $20. This would be a very fun thing to do at a party.
