*”Fruity” music.* Greetings, my lovelies! Hi, it’s Emmy. Welcome back to another Fruity Fruits! Today, I have something quite special — and it is this: it’s a box actually, but the box contains something special! It’s called a miracle fruit or miracle berry. So these were sent to me by Miracle Fruit Farm down in Miami, Florida. Eric, thanks so much for sending these to me. I am so excited to taste these little fruits. Here are the fruits. They’re beautiful; they look a little bit like cranberries — a little bit longer, but they have that same kind of beautiful pomegranate-cranberry colour to them. According to this little card that Eric included in the package, miracle fruit contains miraculin, or “murasulin”. It is a special protein that alters the taste receptors in your tongue, so things taste different: sour things taste sweet, and yeah — so, I’m super excited to see what happens. So, besides just being novel and fun these fruits also have some practical benefits: cancer patients that are undergoing chemotherapy have found benefits, in terms of making food taste more palatable and removing some of that metallic taste, so that’s really great! There’s also been a study that diabetics have seen improvements with their insulin balance as well. I’ll put all that information in the links down below, if you’re curious or interested. So! Let’s go ahead and get to the fun part, which is the tasting. Alright, here we go! Itadakimasu! [Let’s eat] Mmm… The fruit itself is really good. It’s initially a little tart; very sweet; a little bit peachy too, just ever so slightly. Kind of a little bit apricot-y. But good! Upon Eric’s recommendation, the first thing I’m going to try is a little bit of seltzer and some lime. He says it tastes like soda, so let’s give that a taste. Add some seltzer. Add a squeeze of lime juice. Alright, here we go! Cheers! Mmm! Wow! That’s amazing! I smell the lime, but I don’t really taste it. It just tastes… a little bit like Sprite, or 7-Up. Amazing! There’s no sourness at all. Super! Next, let’s try grapefruit I’ve already prepared a grapefruit, and I’ve got some juice as well, so, let’s go ahead and give a grapefruit slice a try. This is a ruby red grapefruit. Here we go. Itadakimasu. Oh my gosh! I love grapefruit, and if you’ve never had a grapefruit before it’s nice and tart, and it has a really nice bitterness to it as well. Love it. But this completely alters it, entirely. It becomes, like, syrupy sweet… but you still taste some of that grapefruit flavor. Super odd, because it’s so sweet. There’s no bitterness at all. It almost does kind of a weird thing to your teeth too. All right, let’s try the juice. Kanpai! Woow. That’s really weird. It’s sweet, but it changes the flavor too. It almost tastes savory. Mmm. I don’t like it as much with the juice. So the next thing I’m gonna try are something that’s not exactly my favourite. They’re dill pickles Because they’re nice and sour, there should be some sort of taste alteration. All right, let’s give it a taste. Itadakimasu! Whoa! When I think of taste, I think a lot about the sense of smell, but I still smell the dill pickle, but I don’t taste any of the sourness. Amazing! Amazing. Now that I’ve had a few things, I’ve noticed that it not only changes the flavor in your mouth, but a little bit down in your throat too. There’s a little bit of sweetness that kind of remains there, I think from the pickle. Interesting! Like I have sweet receptors or something down my throat. That’s totally bizarre! I wouldn’t say that’s an improvement necessarily because it’s just — it tastes like relish to me, but…very bizarre and interesting. Okay, next we’re gonna try strawberries. So we have a beautiful bowl of strawberries. Here we go — let’s give that a taste. (ectaluckymas) Oh my gosh! It’s the sweetest strawberry I’ve ever had. Those are so good. It’s as if you took a strawberry and just dipped it in sugar. And, yeah. Amazing. It is so good. You still have all of that lovely, fresh strawberry flavor, but then it’s just super sweet and delicious — it’s like the ripest, freshest strawberry you’ve ever had. Mmm! Of the things I’ve had, this one is definitely my favorite. It doesn’t alter it in the sense that It still tastes like strawberry, it just enhances it in a way that just makes it so much better. Delicious! Next I have some balsamic vinegar — great, classic vinegar that you put on salads As far as vinegar goes, balsamic vinegar is a rather sweet one, but it’s still very pungent and piquant so… Yep, very strong vinegar smell. All right, let’s give that a taste. Here we go! Wow! That’s…crazy! It does give you a little bit of a burning sensation because you are having this very strong vinegar, and I feel that in the back of my throat and my tongue, but the taste is completely different. I can taste the amount of salt in there, and it’s delicious! It’s completely altered. It still smells very vinegared, but not nearly as sour or strong as it would be…otherwise. It’s great. It also has a syrupy quality to it as well. Next, for something fun, I thought I’d try this: this is a Warhead, extra sour candy, and I can’t really stand these. I can only keep it in my mouth for a couple seconds, because it’s just too sour. So, of course, this is a chemical reaction — this is just citric acid — and I was just curious to see what the reaction would be to the miracle berry. So these hard candies have this kind of powder on them that make them really sour. All right, here we go. Mmm! I can taste the apple flavor — and the sourness is no problem! If you haven’t seen my Warhead tasting, I’ll put that link down below. I couldn’t keep this thing in my mouth at all; and it made my eyes water; but because of the miracle berry, it’s completely palatable, and it’s good! It tastes like a nice, sour, apple candy. The last thing I have is this: and it’s a banana. And so, I’m not sure what the flavor reaction will be for this — if there’ll be any reaction — because this is not a sour fruit; but I don’t really care for bananas, as most of you know, so if this is truly a miracle fruit maybe it’ll make this taste good. Let’s give it a taste. Here we go! Ummmph… It still tastes like a slimy banana…. It didn’t really change that at all. I think my hangup with bananas is really just about texture, it’s not really about the flavor — I actually like banana flavor — I love banana cooked in all kinds of things. It’s just the slimy texture that I just find really off-putting. Amazing. All right, so that wraps up my miracle fruit tasting. Eric, thank you again so much for sending me these fruits — it was amazing! I’ll put all the information to his farm down below, if you’re interested in finding these fruits with the tablets all the information will be down below. I think it would be really fun to do this as a group — if you had a party or something — and everyone does a big tasting — I think that would be super, super fun. Let me know in the comments below if you’ve had the miracle berries before; and what was your favourite taste experience; because, yeah, I always wanna know! Don’t forget to like, subscribe and follow. I hope you guys enjoyed that, and I hope you guys learned something, and I will see you in my next video. Toodaloo! Take care! Byeeee! He sent me a note, and it’s really a taste comparison of a specific kind of chocolate bar that comes from Sweden, and it’s called the Daim Bar. Delicious!

    Visiting the country of my parents origin decades ago, I found that in that area people commonly made a rose hip concentrate by cooking them down. Then bottling the concentrate to use as a awesome drink just by adding cold water to taste, I think it was sweetened also. Those berries remind of that

    Ohh, almost missed this one as it wasn't in the fruity fruit playlist!

    4:35 It may be worth noting to EU viewers that strawberries in the U.S. are pretty terrible. In general, they're tasteless tart bits of cardboard, or at best, super-sweet, but lacking in that true ripe strawberry flavor. When I had strawberries in Copenhagen 5 years ago, I just about flipped my lid. They were so sweet and succulent. Here in the U.S., we get oversized tasteless dollops of red crap.

    So that's probably why she's so surprised. Miraculin probably makes U.S. strawberries taste a little more like true strawberries. 😀

    I don’t think I could do miracle berry, reminds me too much of that day where I had eaten a bag of old peanut M&Ms and puked the next morning and the acidity of it was so bad that everything tasted sweet for at least an hour afterward. I couldn’t even drink water without it tasting like skittles. Which all that probably sounds awesome but I had just puked horrific acid peanut sludge and went through the fears of A. my water being Not Water or possibly tampered with something (maybe antifreeze, I hear some of that stuff tastes sweet) B. something neurological was happening to me and i was having a stroke at 20, or, after I realized my vom probably had something to do with it, C. my stomach acid had permanently damaged my taste buds and I would only taste sweetness forever. Considering it wasnt fading thirty minutes later those fears really carried. Anyways my lesson here being: don’t eat 3-month-old+ peanut candy at 1 in the morning.

  • great now I’m sad Post author

    I feel the same about bananas. I absolutely LOVE things like banana bread! But bananas by themselves… they’re okay. I love fruits because they are usually fresh and juicy and sweet. But bananas? No, they’re just slimy and thick and nasty I guess. I’ll eat them but, only if I have to. I’m sorry if you read my whole comment because it’s just a rant about bananas.

    Late to the party, but – was this from the effect of just the one berry you ate at the beginning of the video, or did you have more of them off-camera?

  • Tom The Plummer Post author

    Shot of vodka makes it perfect

  • The world is crazy and you know it Post author

    I can really recommend trying these out! Sour lemons or grapefruits suddenly taste like they have been sweetened with a ton of sugar, it's amazing how the enzyme in the berries ("miraculin") changes the perception of taste.
    I bought them as small pills (that are basically just the freeze-dried berries)

  • The world is crazy and you know it Post author

    The amazing thing about the enzyme inside the berries is, that you could perhaps completely leave out sugars in every meal or drink you consume. Sugar is actually addictive, since body (and mind) become dependent.
    High sugar intake does change the brain chemistry, too: Daily consumption of sugar (on average) is already too high for most people, since it's almost impossible to cut out sugar if you're not willing to cook (almost) everything home-made.

  • Minion Doge Post author

    My father bring some of this, from his friends. It's my first time to eat this berry and he said, when ever you eat sour fruits or something sour it will change the taste and it will turn sour to a sweet taste. Well he showed my after he eat a lemon and he said ummm.. its so sweet…. so i tried one and eat this berry and then after i eat the lemon… well he said is sure true XD….. now we are planting this in our backyard…

    Why is texture such an issue for most people? if they like the flavor then what's the problem? This seems reminiscent of some bizarre superstition.

    Don't try this fruit guys. It totally messes up your taste for several hours. Everything you eat or drink will taste like sugar. Even chilly pepper doesn't taste hot at the tongue when you chew it (but it would burn at the throat when you swallow it). You can't enjoy food at all because it makes everything taste the same.

  • WJK Post author

    Great video… though whole white grapefruit (vs red grapefruit) would have been a much better comparison, especially seeing how red grapefruits are almost candy-like in taste vs white grapefruits 🙂

  • Господин Ли Post author

    Emmy, it is no longer the late 90s or early 00s, please don’t style your hair like that. Thank you.

    if I eat this fruit and then drink my disgusting protein powder shake do you think it will make taste nice? or coffee?
