I will have you know that durian tastes really sweet. so maybe it feels like pudding surrounding a seed, and it DOES smell very strong, hence the ban placed on it on many transport systems across Asia, because some people HATE durian, op in case. I, on the other hand, LOVE it. And yeah, I'm Asian, so maybe I don't count, but I have many caucasian friends from Australia and London, who have me searching out good durian everytime they come down, because thy absolutely adore it!! maybe the one op tried tastes like crap, considering the fact that he's in US, and the fruit was probably really really old or sth, since durian is only grown in tropical countries, and hence, disgusting. heck, I wouldn't even eat durian that's more than 3 days old. but if you get really good durian, it is really sweet tasting- freaking good. but people either love it or hate it.
222 check your sources... canada is more like US then france... imagine a cleaner and thiner US... and you get most of it.. but Quebec is a funny mix of france and that... and we may have SOME france heritage... its only in the quebec and its mostly gone... and frog legs are awesome... taste a bit like chicken wings.. and no we don't ride polar bears/live in igloos.
Now I'm not saying that no one has ever eaten rattlesnake in the history Texas, but I've lived in Texas my entire life and I've never heard of it being a delicacy nor do I know anyone who's eaten snake. and I know many old and young people in many different areas. hell, I'd say more seem to consider whataburger a delicacy. *wretch*
Uhm....English and French are both official languages of Canada. Yes the west is more predominantly English, while the mainland east is very French. But, a FYI, most people from FRANCE themselves do not like the type of people in French Quebec either..... So... I guess everyone, except for they themselves have a dislike for them. LOL.
I've eaten it. it's thick and sweet and smells funny (but just tastes thick and sweet). definitely not cat shit, but maybe not everyone's cup of tea. I personally don't even find the smell offensive, and I never had it as a kid. it's not my favorite fruit, it's ehhh on the same scale as grapes for me.
