Do you like durian and have you tasted it before? I'm just wondering how many people here like durian especially those from western. I personally like durian very much. Many say it stinks but for those who like it would say the smell comes just nice with the taste and it is indescribable. I like durian in any form like durian pancake, durian cake, ice cream or by itself. One of the most famous is 'golden pillow' and 'D24' in my country. For those of you who have not tasted it before should really give it a try. Who knows you might like it like I do. Don't just scare by the smell.

I really love durians. It not only smells great but taste great. I love all deserts made from durians. But only fresh durians. Those made from essence, taste horrid. I like durians from thailand because i like yellow meat durians.

Yes, i really love durian. I'm living here in the Philippines, and all year round there are lots of durian that you can buy..I agree, that some dont really like the smell and the taste of it. I have a friend that has an American boyfriend and he give a try to taste it, what he did is, he close his nose by his fingers then he eat the durian,because he dont want the smell but i'm pretty sure he absolutely love the taste..lol

lol! Yeah, I believe also that he likes the taste. For what I know, if you like the taste, you'll like the smell too. :)

I love durian in any form as well and by that you should be able to guess where I am from. Especially if I mention D24 is one of the best around but nowadays you have other types that are equally good or better.

I guess I roughly know where you are from. You are right that there are other types which are equally good.

It's a famous Asian fruit, famous especially in countries like Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. You may want to refer to the response that 'cool_viji' posted, there is a picture of the fruit and the brief description as well :)

I do not hate durian, I have never tasted. My mother likes to eat durian, I do not understand why the foul smell of the fruit so she could eat so much fun, I am curious to taste what it is, but I do not have the courage to try. The first time you eat when feeling how taste like?
