Durian Wafers & The Real Thing

The deadly wafer, in closeup.

The enticing package.

An actual durian. It cost $13.50.

On my desk at my previous job. I have tasted actual durian flesh. It's nowhere near as bad as the wafers, but still yucky. Imagine you were scooping out a pumpkin that smelled 10x stronger, and it was filled with what looked like fluorescent yellow runny scrambled eggs surrounded by fibers and containing several avocado pits. And the outside has spikes which hurt your hands and are covered with a sticky, smelly slime you can't wash off anything. But if you can get past the physical attributes, it just tastes like raw pumpkin goop only more so.
