This weekend some of us folks met up in Prospect Park for an illicit Miracle Fruit Flavor Tripping Party. Woo woo!
Ok, not terribly illicit, but doling out tabs of miracle fruit sure makes me feel like a bad ass.
Sandor whipped out this handy make shift table for us since Prospect Park didn’t have both tables AND shelter in the same area. Ooookie dokie.
As always – lemon juice and key lime juice rocked. Grapefruits tasted incredibly sweet and warm. Don’t try the fish sauce – holy crap that stuff was potent! Mints don’t taste minty, just kind of numb, and also nearly get rid of the miracle fruit effect (it came back a few mins later, but a bit subtler). Greek yogurt makes me want to slather it all over my body (I didn’t think it could taste any better!). Salt & Vinegar chips taste like salt & sugar. Brave people will try the pickled/jellied/jarred ham hocks – and those who didn’t will be glad they refrained. Olives taste like olives.
I loved hanging with everyone – although if I organize another event in the future I will make sure it has tables and chairs. Or at least bring blankets.
