Ain't No Chips Ahoy
The other night we thought it would be a
fantastic idea to buy some Chinese durian
cookies from Chinatown. Mmmmm. Durian.
One of us heard that durian was an unusual
fruit but a good one and plus the packaging
was just so great. (Not as cute as Panda
Land cookies but still...) Well...have you
smelled durian? Anyone? When the package
was opened, a smell emerged that to our
ignorant American noses was a cross
between a toddler's soiled diaper and
burning hair or plastic. We wanted to
like durian. We really did.
