The Best Way To Clean Out My Fridge

Joe Fornabaio for The New York TimesThis is nuts. So there’s a small red berry or “miracle fruit” (Synsepalum dulcificum) out there that can rewire your taste buds, and people are hosting “flavor tripping parties” to experience it.

Here’s an excerpt:

“You kept hearing ‘oh, oh, oh,’ ” he said, and then the guests became “literally like wild animals, tearing apart everything on the table.”

“It was like no holds barred in terms of what people would try to eat, so they opened my fridge and started downing Tabasco and maple syrup,” he said.

A large group of guests reached its own consensus: limes were candied, vinegar resembled apple juice, goat cheese tasted like cheesecake on the tongue and goat cheese on the throat. Bananas were just bananas.

Too bad it can’t it alter the destructive properties spoiled food would do to my body, but I bet it would be delicious! Check out the links below for more info.

  1. Well, I have a bad habit of letting things stay in the fridge for a looooong time, and I’m sure it taste pretty nasty, but not with these berries!

    Poem’s comment said it best, “All the mold will taste like cotton candy!”

  2. Did you contact them to see how much they cost? I’d be willing to go in on some if it’s not too crazy. That would be so much freaking fun.

  3. The NY Times and Geekologie had the price listed, it wasn’t too much. I want to try it out.
