I can’t even look at these pictures without feeling sick. I’ve tried durian candy and even with the sugar had to spit it out it was so bad. Did you actual try it??
Yes, I ate a whole piece. My palate is not accustomed to bitter tastes so I found that bit hard to deal with but the texture and the creamy aroma were good.
In the Philippines, Davao City is the “Durian capital”. You can smell the fruit as soon as you get off the plane. And speaking of planes, I believe durian is not allowed to be hand-carried. Some people can’t dig the smell. Not me though. 🙂
Interesting to know! It is banned on flights and many hotels.
As a Vietnamese, I have to say: I LOVE DURIAN! It’s really up to personal preferences but once you enjoy durian, there is no way back 🙂
I tried it and I ate a whole piece. I can see why it’s so good but the bitter taste at the beginning is not a flavor i really like.
In Dhaka I knew it as jack-fruit, I was never able to get past the smell.
