My Miracle Frooties came!!! Actually, they actually came while we were out of town. As soon as I got the mail today, though, I was ready for a little taste-tripping action. After the pill dissolved, I immediately sliced up a lemon, and I was ASTOUNDED that it wasn’t sour AT ALL. It tasted just like lemonade. Chocolate was SUPER-sweet, and straight balsamic vinegar tasted like it had reduced for hours—-just syrupy sweet.
To be honest, I didn’t really expect much; I’ve read varying accounts of success with these pills. If you’ve never heard of them, you’re not alone. Doctors, however, have started using them with chemo patients and diabetics, as they make sugar-free foods taste awesome and reduce the metallic taste that a lot of chemo patients suffer. The pills themselves are a powdered form of the miracle fruit, and it takes about 5 minutes for a half a pill to fully dissolve. It’s important to roll it around all over the mouth so it has a chance to turn all your tastebuds upside down. The effect only lasts for 20 minutes or so, which is probably for the best, since I think I’d be eating everything in sight otherwise, if only to see how it all tasted.
I got mine here, and she got them to me in no time. I’m going to try not to use them all at once, but I have a feeling I’ll be ordering more, just because it’s frickin’ WEIRD to eat a lemon and not pucker.
