Sour foods taste sweet?!

Steven977 | Oct 26, 201106:10 AM

Hey has anyone here tried or heard of "Miracle Fruit"? Here's what Wiki says =) :When you eat the small berry, your taste buds that taste sour or bitter tastes are coated with something in the fruit called miraculin and it masks these tastes. Most articles about it say it makes pieces of lemon taste like candy and you can drink lemon juice like lemonade. It is supposed to last from 30 minutes to a few hours.

Here is a Wiki link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synsepal...

I was thinking of ordering some and doing a tasting party. Where can I get some? I also heard that you can get these in a pill form. Any ideas what the difference between a fresh berry and a pill is?

Thanks! =D
