100 People Try Durian, the World's Stinkiest Fruit
18 October, 2017
Known as the world’s stinkiest fruit, durian is notorious for a powerful odour, and a unique texture and taste.
So strong is its smell that’s it’s banned on public transport in some parts of South East Asia where it originates, though many laud the fruit for its unique properties.
What happens then, when you feed this fruit to a bunch of people in the West who’ve never tried it before? As you can see in the video below, most are put off by the smell and not to keen on the taste either. But it’s interesting the variety of different tastes and smells the 100 human guinea pigs ascribe to the fruit, from garbage to onions, mangoes to cheesy flesh.
Check out the comments under the video on YouTube however and you'll see that many people are complaining that the durians here are unripe and that they have been prepared incorrectly, slicing through the seeds.
It's still quite amusing to see these people struggle.
