    Pretty cool experience. It makes somethings taste incredible! I ate a lemon... rim and all lol, It tasted like candy. Sour grapes tasted phenomenal. Grapefruit juice was better than usual but not great.

    I can see why sugar companies don't want this stuff around. You would be able to use lemon juice as a sweetener.

    I ordered the tablets off Amazon. They sell the seeds so I'm going to look into how hard it is to grow the actual plant

    I heard there are companies which you can hire to host miracle fruit parties with your friends, business, etc.

    Holy shit, I just found some of them for sale @ $2.50 a berry or buy in bulk for $500/kg!

    I didn't think this was gouged like acai and goji and shit. I thought it was just a novelty, like that fruit that stinks to high heaven but tastes really good.

    It makes whatever you at after the berries taste super sweet.

    ^It's supposedly more than sweetness, though, right?

    Amazon has them 10 tablets for 12. The biggest change is sour things tasting sweet. But it also changes bitter things. Peanut butter was very odd.

    Nope, that's it. The controversy comes from the fruit being legal and all, but the compound that does the goofy shit isn't allowed as an "additive" or "sweetener" by our lovely FDA.

    If Andrew Zimmer can't handle it, I'm sure I can't.
