Miracle Berry Tablets Mess With Your Tastebuds

Miracle Berry Tablets Mess With Your Tastebuds


By Luke Anderson

Anyone that knows me very well can tell you that I’m a horribly picky eater. I’m the kind of guy that hates going to fancy restaurants because I have to stare at the menu for ten minutes trying to find something that sounds halfway appetizing. I’m sure other picky eaters will be just as intrigued by these Miracle Berry Tablets.

Bear in mind that I’m skeptical of any serious product with the words “miracle” “magical” or “incredible” in their names. However, I’d be willing to try these tablets, as they promise to turn your tastebuds upside down for around 2 hours. They’ll generally make sweet things sour, and sour things sweet, but it will likely alter the flavor of just about anything.

For around $20 you can get yourself a pack of 10. I’m seriously tempted to try a pack, just for those times I have to eat with my in-laws.

    “They’ll generally make sweet things sour, and sour things sweet, but it will likely alter the flavor of just about anything.”

    Partially true; they make sour things not sour; sweets are way more sweet than one might like.

    Actually, it works. Miracle berries really exist. But afaik they only make sour things sweet. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Miracle_fruit

    It’s called “miracle” because the cause of the reaction is a protein called miraculin, which binds with the taste buds and acts as a sweetness inducer when it comes in contact with acids.

    An interesting, recent article in the NYTimes about it: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/05/28/dining/28flavor.html?scp=1&sq=miracle%20berry&st=cse

    I am what you would call a picky eater, but I don’t like that name, I don’t choose what I think tastes good, and it does change over time,

    >> Bear in mind that I’m skeptical of any serious product with the words “miracle” “magical” or “incredible” in their names.

    GOOD thing! More disturbing is, giveaway phrases such as these are only the tip of the iceberg. The vast majority of manipulative advertising – and thus the most lucrative – always tries to stay juuust below the waterline of customer attention. It’s amazing how quickly the markets can adapt to more subtle forms of deception once there is a need for it.

    In this case however it’s perfectly legit to use the word “miracle” in the product description since it’s indeed part of the proper common name of the fruit. (Incidentally, speaking of funny protein names that end in “-ulin”, there’s also “draculin”, found in the saliva of vampire bats.)

    You can get miracle fruit tablets at http://www.miraclefruitworld.com . They have them in stock and ready to ship worlwide, at the lowest price available! Recommended (and they have a list of foods to try as well :). Try the apple strudel, use no sugar but pure orange juice, it’s fabulous!

  • I got mine from http://www.ninjaberry.nl
    They suggest that taking 1 or 2 tablets during drinking and 1 before you go to bed can reduce or cure an hangover. I tried it and for me it really worked. No headache and full of energy. Really cool.

    Hello, I received mine from Miracle Fruit World
    as well. The post office accidentally damaged the item but I immediately got a replacement from the store (for FREE). Great service, highly recommended! Enjoy the fruit as did I! Bye

    Fantastic Experience i recommend all to try.

    As a long Term Experiencer of the miracle fruit I tried the berries first, then the tablets. I'm looking to get a plant eventually from a really well priced place i know called http://www.MiracleFruitHut.com.

    I am hoping to yield lots of berries and introduce many to the experience.

    You have never tried lemons so great!
