They say a miracle berry makes a Guiness taste like a choocolate shake. They say it makes Tabasco sauce taste like hot doughnut glaze.
The New York Times says that miracle berries rewire your taste buds for an hour or so, making sour foods taste sweet.
I know of no one in Houston who can confirm these rumors. Miracle berries have not yet landed here.
Not until this Friday.
Miracle berry party -- This Friday!
Local blogger "I'm never full" has scored some of these rare African berries. She's hosting a party at La Strada to try them.
Details are here. What you really need to know is that the event is this Friday 5:30 - 8:00 p.m. And the deadline to sign up is this Wednesday [correction: Tuesday]. The price of berries and food is only $15.
Free your tongue and your mind will follow.
