Five bucks a hit

Nothing gets me more excited than the emergence of a new Superfood Supreme. Matcha, açai, goji, and noni, please make way for The Miracle Fruit!

The miracle fruit comes from Ghana and is a loose translation of taami or asaa from some of the regional dialects.


Apparently, the miracle fruit doesn’t have a lot of flavour, but its miracle comes from what it changes in your taste receptors. Bert Archer from The Globe and Mail wrote that, “After you've eaten one [miracle berry], a shot glass of white vinegar can taste like Sprite with a touch of gin.”

These berries are being sold for about $5 a piece, flying in from Miami on dry ice with much drama. I’ll let you know if I can get my hands on some. If you’re reading this, you should send me some please!
