Turn everything you know about flavor upside down.

Get ready for a flavor-altering experience! We’ve taken the most magical part of the mysterious Miracle Berry and freeze-dried it into a fun-to-eat form. One taste of our tart and tangy Freeze Dried Miracle Berry Cubes twists your taste buds to perceive super sour foods as candy-sweet. It’s unlike anything we’ve ever tried!

Here’s How it Works:
Miracle berries contain a protein called miraculin that binds to the sweet receptors on your tongue; instead of sending sour signals to your brain when you eat tart fruit, you get sweet—it’s like Opposite Day for your taste buds!

Place a Miracle Berry Cube on your tongue, move it around until fully dissolved, and then swallow. Next, pop in a mouth-puckering piece of fruit and experience how the taste twists from sour to sweet! Effects last 20 to 40 minutes.

Fruits to Pair:
Lemon, lime, grapefruit, green apple, passion fruit, kiwi, kumquat, goldenberry.

Are Miracle Berries for Real?
Miracle berries are 100% real berries native to West Africa. Locals have consumed these cranberry-like berries for thousands of years to improve the flavor of sour and bland foods. In 1725, European explorer Chevalier des Marchais wrote about Miracle berries when he noticed local people eating the berries before meals.

Are Miracle Berries Rare?
Not really. However, Miracle berries are extraordinarily difficult to harvest. Berries must be picked when perfectly ripe for best effectiveness—at which point they must be consumed in less than 24 hours before spoiling. Our freeze dried berries let you enjoy the fun anytime, anywhere, 365 days out of the year.
