Durian fruit samples at Whole Foods

I strolled into the WF at 3rd & Fairfax, and they were giving away tiny sample cups. I heard the guy say they were durian fruit. Cool! I've heard so much about it. BLECH! I see why the cups were so tiny. It wasn't actually as stinky as people say (although maybe my hayfever protected me from the smell.) But the taste was disgusting. Initially kind of pleasant and creamy, and then this horrible rotten garlic aftertaste in the back of my throat. If I hadn't swallowed it already I may have spit it out. Well...at least I can say I tried it! Anyone tried it and gone back for seconds (aside from folks who grew up eating it?)
