My dad and I were hiking around in Kona on a hot day and stumbled across this massive mango tree which had dropped tons of fruit rotting on the ground. It was nauseating. Was a long time before I tried a mango after that. Papaya can be good, but has to be ripened perfectly, which is almost impossible to do with shipped ones. There isn't much that I won't try at least once. Been to way too many traditional Chinese banquets for family functions to be queasy about food. Want some duck? Mmmm.... yum... Who wants the head?
That reminded me...a few years ago a chinese co worker was celebrating his new year and brought some food in for the whole office.
We all tasted it to be nice but boy I almost died. I want to say it was some kind of rotten duck eggs. Horrible.
