I bought the stuff from the mirberry because we live in the same town. Anyway... to the testing:
I tested a beer mixed with juice
(the only variety of beer that is palatable even without miraculin). It tasted like a lot (almost too much) of sugar was mixed in with it... felt like I was drinking the sugary water used to dip cake in to make the baked dough moist with added subtones of the beer. I drank the first one so fast I couldn't believe... it was so good. To be short: excelent!
Official description:Bandidos Ice is a pale beer with a refreshing Caipirinha flavored drink added (Caipirinha is a brazilian cocktail, made by mixing cachaca (a brazillian liquor) and lime juice in crushed ice).
I guess it would also save the bitter crap called "plain beer" and make it actually taste almost palatable but I didn't try it (yet).
I also tried some red wine
, the extra crappy sour variety. Didn't help it much, still tasted like crap but was actually 1/3 enjoyable (which is quite good in comparison with unpalatable sourness before). I have to try it next time with my favourite wine, one of the rare few that taste good, sweet muscat. Will report if this one got even better. I'll also try champagne one time in the future.Pineapple
tastes almost like honey, mandatory try!Orange juice
(50% mix which has sugar added, forgot to check) tastes almost too sweet.Orange
is simply sugar in slices.Grapefruit
still tastes disgusting but now much less. If you add just a few drops of artificial sweetener it gets palatable. Before you almost had to marinate it in sweetener to make it consumable.Sour apples
are a miracle of it's own kind: it's an apple that tastes good (not sour) and is actually crispy (not like some soft crap) at same time.Ketchup
tastes like marmalade.Tomato concentrate
is even sweeter than ketchup.Plain yogurt
tastes like a good fruit yogurt. No additives needed, phenomenal for a diet.Kefir
is almost as good as yogurt, but I would choose yogurt over it anytime.Cottage cheese
is a miracle. Tastes just like cake filling. If you mix it with pineapple or similar fruit it will taste like a very good fruit cake. Phenomenal, must try.Olives
lose the bite of the sourness which makes them taste less good.Pickled vegetable salad
(mixed vegetables with vinegar in a pickle jar) is the really miracle one. If you don't look (and smell) at what you are eating it tastes almost like compote
with practically zero calories penalty (3kcal per 100g).
I noticed that the miraculin loses it's potency sooner if you use it with a drink than if you use it with food. I guess it's potency goes away as fast as much you are "washing" your mouth. The second beer half hour later was a lot less sweet. But maybe I also got more used to the taste.
