Freeze-dried Rambutan

As a writing exercise, today my professor passed around a bag of Trader Joe’s freeze-dried rambutan – a spiny red fruit with white lychee-like flesh, native to Southeast Asia – and asked us to describe the flavor in one sentence. Mine was:

Freeze-dried Rambutan smells like something from the sea floor fell into a patch strawberries, goes over the tongue with the texture of artificially fruit-flavored pumice, and dissolves into a mash of half-fishy, half-peachy flavor – and I can’t … stop … eating … it.”

Mom always said to try new things.
