Fruit is one of my favorite things to eat, so I think it is high time to give credit to the king of all fresh food.

My 10 favorite fresh fruits are:
1. Cherry
2. Strawberry
3. Blueberry
4. Kiwi
5. Guava
6. Nectarine
7. Lime
8. Pineapple
9. Plum
10. Raspberry

Flavorings are a different story, some are very good; here are my 10 favorite flavorings:
1. Melon
2. Apricot
3. Blueberry
4. Goji
5. Peach
6. Acai
7. Loganberry
8. Cranberry
9. Plum
10. Apple

But there are some flavorings that I can't stand:
1. Black Cherry
2. Blue Raspberry
3. Orange
4. Lime (In most cases, in Skittles it is ok)

I also need to give Coconut flavoring a shoutout, it isn't a fruit but it is mighty tasty, and the official flavor of summer.

Hurray for fruit!

You have interesting taste in flavorings.

Goji? What the heck is Goji a flavor in (other than weird energy drinks)? And Acai?

Now peach I can hang with. Love peach flavor - especially in alcoholic beverages . . .

And Pomegranate is left off the list again this year, along with lychee. Seriously?

Can't do the peach flavour myself. Got a wee bit pissed on shnapps (sp??? who invented that freakin word?) mixed with oj and I was only 10 at the time. Thought it was peach juice.

I love lime. The smell of it is almost heaven. Coconut too. Yum.

Pomegranate is in the peak of it's flavoring life cycle (Acai is quickly gaining speed and soon will be as common as pomegranate, with goji a year or two off). But the reason it didn't make the fresh fruit list is that there were just too many good fruits out there, I had to cut out five fruits that I like, and pomegranate didn't make the list. As for flavorings pomegranate just is too variable in flavor form, sometimes it is good some times it isn't... it is close to beating out apple, but I can't pass on the apple flavoring.

I just don't get enough Lychee to have a strong feeling about it, I need to see if I can find a fresh one somewhere. Maybe at Whole Foods...

What about mango? Ripe mango = pure bliss.

Jus sayin...

Ookami Snow said...

While a ripe mango is good, I can never get them to come out right when I buy them myself. I don't know what I do wrong...

As ;I recall, you don't like bananas and at least in the past, grapefruit made your ears red. Probably the best fruit I ever had was the green coconut milk and fresh pineapple right out of the Del Monte field in Costa Rica. MMMmm.

Dried mango. Secret to the universe.

Ookami Snow said...

Oh dried fruit I completely forgot about that. I agree dried mango is awesome, so are dried apricots.

I'm with you on hating orange-flavored stuff. Yuck. I wrote about this a while back. What I didn't mention in that post, is that for some reason, I love the orange drink at McDonald's. I forgot that one. Strange.
