    I'm just curious as to what they taste like. I've already heard what they smell like.[​IMG]

    Kenny, I will forward this to Lew Crippen, I'm sure he can grasp it a bit better.

    Some of the descriptions of the taste of durain could not be posted here. :b

    Glad to see we don't hgave the monopoly of food that smells like ass! (or worse) [​IMG]. We have this thing back home that litterally smells like shite. Litterally. And it tastes really good - which makes sense, it's got to taste heavenly for people to endure that stench.

    I tried it once. I couldn't even tell you what it's called locally or in french, let alone in english. Heck, I don't even know what it is, never stood around long enough to ask...

    Thanks for the link Danny-I'd kind of forgotten how wide-ranging that thread was.

    D28 is the designation of the very best durians, Kenny. I'm not sure where you could try these in your neck of the woods.

    I should add that as I'm in San Miguel de Allende and about to leave to wander around this lovely old town, I'm a bit short of time to write more of a durian description. But that thread Danny mentioned is pretty good.

    My mom likes to eat this often. It smells like crap, and I haven't bothered to taste how heavenly it is.

    Danny, they had one on it a couple of days ago. It was a dice game for the WWE wrestlers, you roll three big dice and had to put the three ingredients that were on them along with a base ingredient of pig brains into a blender and than drink a big glass full of the stuff. It was sick because they had ingredients like pig rectum, bile, cod oil, fish sauce, and animal fat amongst others. Mmmmmm animal fat.[​IMG]
