Has anyone tried durian? It's a fruit from the Southeast Asia.

Moved this to Polls. This is in no way a "Forum Game."

Tried it, was not impressed. I was keen to try it after seeing it as a thing in Animal Crossing, but the texture made me gag. I've been assured that durian's come in quite a range and that I should try again but from a decent source - Im not convinced, and unsure if Ill take the risk again!

I've only tried a freeze dried version and it was pretty tasty.

Yes I have tried it but I can’t handle the smell.

Kicked them into some baskets on an island once, but didn't eat any

It has similar taste and texture to custard with the scent of really nasty gym socks. I like it in ice cream and smoothies, so the smell is reduced.

Never had it. Just ask Shirase and Hinata, and you'll know why it's not a popular food.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I've never had it, and so far the smell has convinced me not to.

No, but I'm not opposed. From what i understand I probably won't like it, and I know not to eat it in my home

No is my answer, but I am interested to try to determine if I will enjoy the taste. I am curious of the fruit's scent, and if the smell is as pungent as some individuals describe.
