I am not sure, but I think the fresh stinks a lot more than the frozen.

There is a plant in indonesia that has the largest flower " the corpse flower" that stinks like a , you guessed it, corpse. Maybe thats what you were thinking about. But the durian itslef, smells. I remember i tried a durian candy once, and it kinda tasted like natural gas, if thats possible.

On the Bizarre Eats show Andrew Zimmerman could not eat it.

He said it was like Rotten mushy Onions.

When I was in Thailand there were this large red triangular signs at the front of the hotels with a Durian, a circle around the durian, and a line crossed through it: No Durians Allowed.

There are lots of different types of durian and it sounds like you got a mild version. I've had both -- and both are good; -- but when it smells, it really gives you reason to pause before you put it in your mouth.

I'm jealous, I would love to try it.

If you ate pasta and antipasto, would you still be hungry? ~Author Unknown
