Friday night, Seattle's Yelp Elite popped pills like nobody's business! No, we're not talking illegal drugs here… we're talking Miracle Fruit. If you're
out of the loop, Miracle Fruit are berries that, when eaten make sour
and acidic foods taste sweet and sweet foods taste even sweeter. Sound crazy? It most certainly was!
Mix Lounge provided the perfect atmosphere for Yelper and their guests to taste everything from lemons, limes, & grapefruit… to vinegar and strawberries. Sweet & sour candies were super sweet while the Tabasco sauce that burned a little going down ended up tasting like donut glaze!
While many were convinced that the potato chips they were eating were Jalapeno flavor… the truth of the matter was that they were salt n' vinegar. Put that on your tongue and taste it!
Guinness, vodka lemonade cocktails & chardonnay made for perfectly sweet libations, as regular beer
just wouldn't do. Laurence L was particularly fond of the flavor trip, asking, "What else could turn cheap wine into apple juice?" Yes, they really did work wonders with one's palate.
Charlotte G was a fan of the citrus, "the lime and grapefruit were her favorite, the strawberries were also excellent–tasted like strawberries and whip" as was Alison R "was shocked with each new thing she ate because it tasted so sweet! The
strawberries may have been the most amazing thing ever."
Riss J who "couldn't believe how much the tastes of some things really did change" found the libations quite amusing. "The Guinness was described as "neutral", "root beer" and "chocolate
shake" by various mouths in attendance." Which begs her next question, "See what I mean by dangerous?
You didn't even know you were drinking alcohol.
All in all, it was a great time! A huge thank you goes out the hard working staff and crew at Mix Lounge who hosted a fabulously fun and interesting event!
Until Next Time Seattle,
