Flavor trippin'

Yesterday some friends of mine held a "flavor-tripping" party that was a ton of fun. It's not as sketchy as it sounds: you eat a tablet of miracle fruit, and for the next half hour or so, it makes everything sour taste sweet instead.
Some foods we tried:
  • lemon and lime slices (still a bit sour, but more like lemonade)
  • sour gummy worms
  • green apples
  • cherry tomatoes
  • sour cream
  • beer
  • tamarind
  • vinegar
  • pure citric acid in water!
It was a super bizarre experience. You could still feel that tingling sensation on your lips and tongue that you get when you eat something sour, but the taste was sweet. The dissolved citric acid really tasted like sugar water.

And then we all had heartburn.

You can get miracle fruit tablets on Amazon!
