Get ready to flip everything you know about flavor upside down.

Native to West Africa, Miracle berries are oval-shaped berries with a unique protein called miraculin that makes sour foods taste sweet. When a miracle berry touches your tongue, miraculin binds to your sweet receptors; instead of sending sour signals to your brain when you eat tart fruit, you get sweet—it’s like Opposite Day for your tastebuds!

In West Africa, locals have consumed Miracle berries for thousands of years to improve the flavor of sour or bland foods. To create a fun tasting experience at home, pair Melissa’s Freeze Dried Miracle Berry Cubes with lemons, limes, grapefruits, passion fruits, kiwis, kumquats or goldenberries.

Place cube on your tongue, move it around until fully dissolved, and then swallow. Next, pop in a sour piece of fruit and experience how the flavor changes from sour to sweet! Effects can last for up to 20-40 minutes.

Ingredients: 100% Freeze Dried Miracle Berry Powder. 8 servings per package.
