So strange they left out "Durian" - One person's lack of compassion does not equal another's comfort.

So strange they left out "Durian"
Durian is something I've never dared to try. I've eaten in at least two Vietnamese restaurants that served it. Just never appealed to me to try something the smell of which is purported to make most Americans want to puke. I suppose I'd try it before I'd try "Chicken Liver Ice Cream" (which I declined to try last year).

This article in AOL news lists the most disgusting foods a bunch of people tried. I couldn't get through the entire list, but I did search for Durian and it wasn't there.

I've had durian before. Really, once you get it past your nose, it's not that bad. Creamy, almost. I suggest getting and eating it frozen. It stinks less that way. And the scent... I'm not sure about. Everybody else I know that's smelled it tells me it's probably the worst thing they've seen someone put past their lips, but I barely notice it. I think it may be genetic.

I had some that had been frozen...texture was nice. I didn't care much for the flavor, but it didn't make me want to hurl, either.

I hath smelteth the Durian. It smells like a combo of rotting trash, gasoline and dead fish. It is d - i - s - g - u - s - t - i - n - g.

Durian's supposed to taste pretty good, just smell bad. Kind of like the dinner I had last night in a carribean restaurant that passed itself off as west african...

Durian is really not that bad. One of the reasons for its evil reputation is that it's heavy and sharp and can kill people by falling on their heads.
