Taste test: Durian snacks have achieved a legendary status here at, because we've heard almost nothing but bad things about the taste and smell of this Asian fruit, and yet some people actually eat the stuff. Our encounter with wafers containing durian did not go well.

We opened the bag to find that the chips had a light yellow color with no visible seasoning, so they didn't look any different from plain Lay's. The initial taste, lasting perhaps a fraction of a second, was fruity and sweet, but it quickly transitioned into the same durian flavor that I suffered through on those wafers, just an awful taste. To make matters worse, that durian taste stayed around for an aftertaste, just to remind me of the mistake I made by eating these. And remember not to burp after eating durian, because when I did, even several minutes later, the durian sensation returned yet again. Ick.
