Does durian have a strange taste? Depends on who you ask, I suppose! The texture is rather creamy, like a good custard. The taste - well, for aficionados it is great, for others, strong and nasty.

I like the lunch basket cozy as well - I had given up using that basket because stuff fell out the bottom - but now it is revived! Bright colors too! Don't know how they will hold up in the rain, though - didn't use it this morning, afraid it might run all over my clothes!

I love it! I spent the first 18 years of my life in  thailand and my whole family LOVES durian. One of these cozies would have been so helpful for bringing it home! I can't tell you how many times I've gotten my fingers pricked with them!

The frozen ones are pretty tasteless - and that's the only way I can get them here in the US now. I miss all my thai fruit! Durian and lychees, and  mangos and papaya! Oh, and mangosteen too!

Do NOT forget the mangosteens! They're some of my favorites! Also the Lumyai (no English) ... guess you'll just have to come back and taste the goodies all over again!

My dad found the frozen ones weren't too bad if he took them out of the freezer, let them thaw and then put all the sections into paper towels to sop up the extra moisture. Does help, he said, but nothing like a fresh one! Plus, those durian are Mong Tong, which are not the sweetest ones anyway, but the Thai prefer them because over the years they've gotten so they like them less flavorful and aromatic. Come on over and I'll find some Chinee and Kadoom for you!
