    More Information:
    Durian is a popular fruit in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand. Widely regarded as the world's smelliest fruit, it's apparently illegal to open one on a plane. While some people think it has a sweet taste, many compare the odor to sewage, rotten flesh or....a dirty bottom. So of course, we had to see what our Irish People thought of these snacks made from Durian fruit..

    Fun fact: There was only supposed to be 3 pairs for this video, but the universe works in mysterious ways...some higher power wanted eight Irish People to try these tasty treats, clearly...😉

      This is so funny so awesome you need another set of TRY'ers and do it again. You should also end with a whole ripe Durian Fruit.

      this gives me an idea for a try. the miracle berry. it has a chemical in it that binds to the tong to turn sour items sweet.

      Durian soda synthetic or not every burp is a reminder.... Dried durian is rather nice 🙂. Have them try jack fruit dried then candies and finally have a fresh jackfruit for them to cut open and eat fresh. 🙂 Other than looking similar to durian fruit and all the latex it should be nice.🤞🤝

      Durian is an acquired taste. Took a few try’s but it grows on you. Now that you’ve tried all the weak stuff, actually eat the real fruit. If the taste doesn’t get you the texture will.

              I believe the taste for durian fruit is a genetic thing. Kinda like how some people think cilantro taste like soap. I believe white people think durian taste like feet.

                      The only thing that could’ve been better would have been Dermot with peanut butter durian candy. Now THAT would have been fun!

                                I find durian to smell and taste like bad eggs and old garlic. Jack fruit is waaaaay better

                                  I am disapointed that at the end you did not bring out a "surprise" treat and give them real durian fruit to try.

                                      My family and I had dinner in Malaysia, and since it had been well over 20 years since I'd lived in Thailand, I figured my taste buds had matured, so I ordered durian for dessert. I knew I couldnt when the server opened the kitchen door on the other side of the restaurant. I was gagging putting a quarter spoonful into my mouth. Cause for some awful reason the fruit is hot even if cold, so it feels like eating a warm turd.

                                          durian's great. the artificial durian flavour they use in stuff like this is fucking disgusting.

                                                  I'm so confused as to how they don't like it

                                                    Not sure where I heard this but they say that durian smell is different per person because of the chemicals in the fruit. For me and most of the people who like and enjoy durian, it actually smells quite lovely, like coffee (this was actually my first impression when I first encountered it when I was in grade school). And for that they make a lot of durian coffee here locally. But it's true that for others it smells like shit or sewage or rotten eggs. The actual fruit is very creamy with a really complex flavor, and the smell isn't as overpowering once it's in your mouth. Anddd for that they use it a lot for different kinds of treats and even ice cream, which I think is very the delicious. Candy versions I'm not that fond of because it usually has an oniony and sometimes bitter aftertaste.
                                                    So cheers to you people for trying these treats, and much respect again for trying these out even though you obviously didn't have a fun time. I wonder though if the actual fruit will be a better experience for you or if it comes in an ice cream form? If so, the best durians come from Indonesia and Malaysia, I think those are particularly sweet (never tried the Thai durian so I can't really say). I haven't tried the durian ice cream from those countries but the local Filipino durian ice cream is very sweet and savory, and hardly has any scent at all.
