The other day at the grocery store, Stephanie and I stumbled upon dragonfruit.
This wonderful fruit is present in a lot of our favorite drinks, including the Fire one from Snapple Elements, which was discontinued when we were younger.
So when I saw this nine dollar fruit, I bought it. And got super excited to try it.
The hotel doesn’t let you take silverware into your room, but I can, however, use these plastic utensils to,
Step One: Cut the fruit in half.
Step Two: Pop the fruity flesh out. I have a fork (serious oversight on my part, a spoon would have been better and I’m not going downstairs again, I refuse!), but using your fingers to pop it out is just as efficient, like an avocado.
Step Three: Cut any residual skin off the flesh, and cut it up some more.
Look how pretty it is!
Much like a kiwi fruit, you can eat the seeds, but be sure to chew them, your body won’t digest them otherwise.
Lastly, eat and enjoy.
Verdict: I’m not sure how I feel about it! The taste wasn’t as strong as I anticipated it to be. It’s there, it’s a good fruit, but it’s not exactly… present. Would I buy again? Maybe, if someone was there to squeeze and sniff and smell it with me, who knew how to pick the best one. ‘Til then, I’ll just drink it.
