11 years after first hearing of this fruit, my wife found some durian flavored cookies. She left them in the driveway and I went out to try them.  The scent was rotting onions and sulfur, but I bravely took a bite.

Spewed it into the nearby trashcan.  It was like eating death and onions. I threw the rest in and ran for the listerine.

After that I went out for a couple hours, you could smell the damn things 50 feet away by the mailbox.  It took a bottle of vinegar and box of baking soda in the trash before the smell went away  and this is 4 little wafer cookies. A cant imaging what a fruit the size of a small child would be like.   

Its not good, or pleasant or even amusing.  Now I'm glad I did it, but I still wish I had not.

I've made it a hobby of mine to try foods that most people think sound horrific.

Here's the thread on this board.

I'd try durian, but I can't find any anywhere near me.

While durian sounds awful, I do recommend trying some of the stuff people are terrified to eat. Sometimes it's really good. Not often. In fact, most of it is awful. But, hey! Keep trying!

Durian is horrible. I had some in Indonesia and its everywhere there. It smells bad and tastes like textured egg, but once you get past the smell it doesn't taste too bad. That being said the smell is reaaaaally hard to get past.

Even a lot of places have 'no durian allowed' signs up (like the above picture). On planes they'd give people hard candy to help equalize people's inner ear, and of course I got the durian one, which wasn't horrible but I wouldn't make a habit of it by any stretch...

Bravo for seeking it out: if I wasn't overseas and in a 'try the local cuisine' mood, I would never have touched the stuff!
