EEEEEEWWWWWWW!!


Dear Lord I can smell it from here! Inside that bag (actually it is double bagged) is a DURIAN! The durian is further wrapped in plastic wrap and yet I can still smell it from here! I have agreed to taste this thing. What was I thinking!!!???!!! Durian is supposed to be a special treat, but smelling it right now I can't imagine putting that in my mouth. I think I would rather eat a fist full of habanero peppers! When David gets home tonight we will give it a try. GULP!

Oh you are brave!!!!!
I wish I was there, you would give me courage to try it as well.

You would never believe it but I saw Durian in a Sydney supermarket..it was frozen and smell-less. Maybe I should try it here....

Make sure you get a photo of you tasting it, LOL

You know if I try you will have to at some point! We are definitely taking pictures of this event. Dakota has already stated NO WAY! NO HOW! he refuses to taste it at all. WIMP! Check back later for the results of that tasting.

I did it , I did it!!!!

I thought of you the whole time and you inspired me LOL.

I won't do it again ! but I am pleased I did.

It was creamy and the texture was wonderful, like creme brulee, but oh the smell.

I think it is like Vegemite and Australians. we all love it because we grew up with it but no one else does.
