I have, and as they say in the Philippines; "smells like hell, tastes like heaven"
Now it obviously smells, really, really, bad. Like the sweatiest socks in a huge wash basket of sweaty socks, its awful.
But the taste. I found it just OK. It wasn't good and it wasn't bad. Here in Thailand they go crazy for Durian every season. This year, a poor Durian farmer was murdered by thieves stealing his fruit!
The thing I do like about it though is the texture in my mouth. Its really smooth and creamy and just like eating melted chocolate, but it still wouldn't tempt me into paying a kings ransom for it, about $10 a kilo here in Thailand. Ridiculous!!
I have, actually. For people who didn't grow up with it the smell is what I find that most people think is off putting. And the smell is very strong indeed, but once you get past t hat the fruit itself is actually quite nice and has a very pleasant taste :)
I have never eaten it but would love to try it since it seems like the best fruit ever. Although, in my country, it could be called another name but it is actually my first time ever hearing about durian.
While I have never really heard of it so yeah you know the rest.
While in my country we have a similar kind of fruit names as "JACKFRUIT". Which is kind of similar to the Durian but it smells good and yeah it tastes good as well. By the way it is our national fruit as well.

I want to try it.
But in my country you can find durian flavor mochi at best.
I hope to try the real thing someday.
My fiance say it's delicous.
Opps, i am from Indonesia, the source of Durian XD
Durion is one of the most favorite fruit in my country, and ofcourse i love it too.
Haha, but dont eat it too much because it can affect your blood pressure instantly.
