A review of the “flavor tripping” party

Breakfast @ Tiffany Party

So the party was crowded, and made me think of “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”

What is “flavor tripping” like you ask? Well it is WONDERFUL, but strange. The Miracle Fruit is a lot like a grape, in taste and texture. You put the thing in your mouth, remove the flesh with your tongue, and then swirl the stuff around in your mouth for a full minute. Afterwards you dive into the fun food that you want to taste differently.

My first bite was into a lime, now I love limes anyway, but this was incredible. It was like eating lime sugar. Not a bit of it was sour at all, it tasted like a lime pixie stick. I ate many. The cheese we ate, had a sweet after taste (but not exactly like frosting), and was yummy.  The strangest was that Guinness beer really did taste like chocolate milk. It was fun to taste things so differently, but I was happy when my real taste buds returned. Some of it lingered longer than others. Limes tasted like sugar for a full 30 minutes, but somethings didn’t taste different after about 10.

The biggest shocker was Rhubarb. I had to taste rhubarb before the fruit to even know what it was SUPPOSED to taste like. It was like lime celery. Afterward the fruit, it was very sugary.

Unfortunately I did not get to try tequila, but oh well. Perhaps next time.

It was a fun low key party.

    It sounds like most things tasted sweeter, but not totally different? Well, Guinness normally only tastes like chocolate milk when you dump a shot of Bailey’s in there, but most of the other things you described seemed to have the sugars enhanced. Did Brian have the same experience? Does it, like, depend on which part of your tongue you let the berry linger on?

    So interesting! I think I’d love a post-miracle-fruit tequila shot.

    That’s really cool – I’d never heard of this before. I would like beer if it tasted like chocolate milk!
