Durian is known to be a fruit that smells like hell but taste like heaven. And this I know because I grew up in Davao, where durian really abounds. After the famous mangosteen, durian is now a liquid food supplement courtesy of the MLM company called Neways. Wow, durian is now getting a worldwide attention. I am sure this will be a big hit worldwide. Let us all eat durian.

I have never heard of this, it sounds interesting though, I have my own little theory about food, now this is just my theory not a proven fact, I believe nature has made thing in way that everything is for a reason so I think they put out nose above our mouth so that anything that doesn't smell goos we don't eat, but usually I have found if it doesn't smell good it usually doesn't taste good either so this is very interesting...

durian has a strong sweet smell. It's good for some people. but the effect like perfume. Some people can stand strong aroma, and other don't...some people might feel nausea with Durian smell.

I did once. Never again. It's horrible. It smells bad. The only thing it does is look pretty.

Of course I eat Durian. In our farm in Bansalan we have grown a lot of fruit trees including Durian. I love to eat this fruit because it is so tasty and nutritious. Before I can eat even 5 fruits and I'm still craving for it.

I love durian! Though the smell is so strong, it taste really sweet. Some people think its aphrodisiac. (Hehehe!) But if you eat too many of it, they also say that it will increase your blood pressure. So eat it moderately...and enjoy!

I like durians and I will a lot of durians when the season is there. Now at my backyard the durian trees is producing so many durians, and they are at their peak. Every day a lot of durians fall off from the trees. It is very fun to pick durians. I can eat as much fresh durians as I can right now. Yummy!
