Miracle Fruit Will Get Your Taste Buds High

Sure, we've all heard of the Superfruits, but how about miracle fruit? Miracle fruit is a little known berry that alters taste buds making bitter things better and sour things sweet. The effect lasts anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours. If you ask me, it sounds like it makes your taste buds high.

Several food bloggers were able to get their hands on some miracle fruit and tested it out.

It may be impossible for one to realize how much sweetness is present in citrus until one has had the sourness chemically masked. Lemons and limes are full of natural sugars, salts, and acids, but those flavors are normally pretty well-hidden behind the tartness.

I don't know about you guys, but I have got to get my hands on some of this stuff. And lucky for me, FitSugar found a place to order the plant online.
