Great story about your family's scrappy little noni monopoly πŸ‘ but wow, @justinparke, I've now filed noni (especially noni juice) away as something to *avoid*. πŸ˜…

>a fruit whose fermented juice tastes a bit like blue cheese
Okay, that sounds interesting, I'll definitely have to try this at least once

>it's actually a cross between blue cheese, pineapple and vinegar
Uh.. never mind.

Well, yeah it's not for everyone. Don't knock it til you try it. I would dare say it's pleasant chilled with a hint of palm sugar.

πŸ€” I know it’s not an apples to apples comparison, but do you think someone who likes kombucha might be a fan?

Β Β Β Β Β Well, to my knowledge, I hear kombucha is a bit beer-like, and has very small amounts of alcohol. I am strictly Ital, so I have never tried it because of this reason. However, I think kombucha is very similar to another drink we used to make called "ginger bug", a lactofermentation simliar to kimchi or sauerkraut.

Β Β Β Β Β I think if you have alkaline fruits and vegetables, or Caribbean style bitter drinks, you might like it. All in all, I think it's hit and miss. We used to give out free shots to customers in our restaurant, because most people have never heard of it. I would say from giving it to the random masses chilled and sweetened with a bit of palm sugar, we received about a 50/50 ratio of those who like versus hate it. If you're in the USA you can probably buy a liter of noni for between $20 and $40 form a health food store or an Asian market.

Nice - thanks for the detailed response! You've convinced me to give noni juice a chance πŸ˜…

By the way, I could have SWORN I upvoted your post already, but Esteem isn't showing that I did! Upvoting now!

Give it a try, although the stuff from the stores in the USA is pasteurized, so it's a bit dead, but the only way you're gonna get your hands on fresh juice would be from Florida perhaps, but I can't honestly say I've ever seen or heard of anyone growing it there; I just figure the climate is possible.

Β Β Β Β Β Wow! Thanks again Travelfeed.io ! Thank you @for91days for your curation. I made the mistake of not using the Travelfeed Editor to post this one, thinking it was only loosely travel-related. Anyways, the formatting didn't turn out to nice when viewed on the Travelfeed.io site. I am now using a lot markdown in my posts, and I find a post looks good when made in Travelfeed, it always looks good on Steemit, but not always vice-versa. On Partiko all markdown code doesn't work and the post looks like a hot mess.
