Too Good to Be True?

My friend Laura Aviva (check out her online trunk show of very lovely artisanal textiles and objects from around the globe) was telling me about this crazy berry that makes everything you eat after consuming its fruit, better, sweeter, more enhanced. We discussed it over a dinner broiled lamb chops and spinach with garlic and dried cherries at my house. My children found it fascinating. I was rather dubious.

I would love to know if anyone else has tried it, and if it was worth the $60.


  1. I remember that Sina Najafi (editor of Cabinet) was raving about this miracle fruit. They even had a miracle fruit party at Cabinet. I want to try it!

  2. The Miracle Berry: I have tried it. It works. Though usually only for citrusy things (does not transform bitter chocolate into sweet chocolate, which is a shame).

    But 60 bucks is steep, you can get it for much cheaper here:

  3. Oh, I have to order it now. Could be a fun experience for a playdate with the kids.

  4. thinkgeek has tablets for way cheaper. its worth it. i know a lot of ppl who have tried it

    guiness turns into chocolate..
