Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
The New York Times has a story today about NYC trendsters discovering a tiny fruit from West Africa known as Miracle Fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum). When you eat the small red berry, it reacts with certain acids and makes things like lemons taste sweet as candy. One New Yorker, who is giving tasting parties with the berries, said people went a little crazy at one party and started tasting everything in his kitchen. It's only a matter of time before someone tries it with French kissing and oral sex. Maybe they already have and the gray lady was simply too ladylike to report such randy usage. Anybody out there ever tried it? Might be the next best thing to happen to the ol' bj since Pop Rocks. You can order Miracle Fruit at Tradewinds Fruit and other places on the internet but unless you live in a very hot frost-free zone, you have to grow the plant inside.
