Here I am, ready to report on the Magic Fruit after my first experiences. For this experience, we went to the shops and purchased a variety of sour foods. Here’s the results:
Lemon Juice - Tastes like honey with a twist of (non-sour) lemon. If you’ve got a cold, I’d highly suggest having a glass of hot lemon juice straight (after taking Magic Fruit.)
Lime Juice - Much the same as lemon juice, just not as sweet. I think the aftertaste is because I didn’t get a good coating on the back of my throat.
Vinegar - This is very hard to explain, other than saying it tastes exactly like Vinegar, but without the intense, biting quality.
White Onions - Sadly, these are much the same as usual, though will a little less harshness from the pickling liquid.
Soy Sauce - Like vingear, this tastes exactly like Soy Sauce, but without the saltiness. It’s hard to explain
Salt & Vinegar Crisps - These turned out to be sweet and sour crisps, very delicious. The sweet vinegar flavour contrasted to the saltiness of the chip, and together they complemented each other very nicely.
Wasabi - This one was really quite strange. Our normally hot wasabi was reduced to a warm, wheatgrassy flavour. It wasn’t unpleasant, but was definately a different taste.
As well as these basic tests, we’ve been told that we should try these with a pint of Guinness. So on the way back from the shops we did…
- Guinness - Oh My God. It’s like the heavens opened up and blessed us. What was previously a bitter and moody drink was literally a sweet nectar of awesomeness, and you could easily down an entire pint of this in 10 seconds.
In short - this shit is awesome, go buy some.
