The World's Best Fruit

Pic from website


I recently was contacted by a company that found me through Foodbuzz called The World Best Fruit where they feature a miracle red berry that instantly changes everything sour to sweet. How does it work? "The berry, known as miracle fruit, has a protien called miraculin. The miraculin basically sticks to your sour receptors on your tongue and covers them up. The effect lasts between 15 minutes and 2 hours. For most people, it's about a half hour."


A resturant in East Lansing called, Reno's (East)is hosting a fundraiser for the MSU Outdoors Club...it's a Foodie's event that has been huge in big cities around the country.


"Proceeds will go to the MSU Outdoors Club to support the film festival they are hosting on April 7th. This Film Festival is called the Banff World Tour and is a Touring edition of the Banff Film Festival. Making its way from Austria to Argentina and from Iceland to India, the Banff World Tour is an extreme outdoor sports and mountain culture film festival that spans the globe. More than 170,000 people attend approximately 450 screenings in about 250 locations. This year, the Michigan State University Outdoor Club is pleased to host a screening at our university. Check this thing out! Tickets are $10 and will be on sale at the Flavor Tripping Event."


East Lansing people come out and try this berry with me tomorrow!

I tried a miracle berry last fall and it was awesome! Have fun!

I've tried miracle fruit before...the one thing I can recommend is to NOT eat things that are already sweet when you're trying it out...ew! It becomes absolutely disgusting.

Miracle fruit?!! How interesting!

I've nominated you for an award on my blog. I hope you'll swing by SoCal and check it out.

I am down for any type of Mediterranean feast! That's my favorite type of food! Hope you had fun with your company!

Ooh I hope you write about what it was like. I am intrigued. I read the CNN piece and it says it even changes the flavours of hot sauce. Crazy!
