You may remember reading about miracle fruit before, and may even have tried it yourself, but even so, it's still pretty trippy. The berry of the plant, when ingested, coats the tongue with miraculin, a protein that reacts with acids to make sour foods like lemons taste sugary sweet. It's as close to a Willy Wonka invention as we're likely to get from the natural world.
