One of the items on my bucket list includes trying as many different kinds of fruits and cuisines as possible. Both the OH and I love doing this, and hence, this is one item on the list that is never-ending and never going to be crossed off. 🙂
So, we did get to try some new varieties of fruits over the last week, all thanks to Spar Hypermarket. I love the store for bringing so many lovely brands that I had only read about till now under one roof in India, but that I will write about in a different post.
We tried two new fruits – new to us, I mean.
The first one is rambutan.
I admit I was a little put off by the hairy appearance of the fruit, and the difficulty in peeling it open due to its slightly hard skin. However, once we had popped the fruit inside in our mouths, we became fans. The rambutan tastes just like the litchi, only that it is a little less sweeter and a little harder as compared to a litchi.
Then, we tried some cherries.
Both the OH and I had had cherry shakes and eaten dried cherries in fruit cakes, but we had never really tasted the fresh fruit. I loved the way they look, sleek and red and shiny, almost stylish. However, I was kind of disappointed with the taste. 😦
Maybe not a big deal, but we valued both of these new experiences and were excited like school kids to find these fruits at Spar. The next time we visit, we plan to try out some more new fruits!
And, while we are on the subject of fruits, don’t forget to try out the litchis that are selling in Bangalore now. They’re scrumptilicious! 🙂
