Sorry, this product is not available.



Sucking a lemon and washing it down with a glass of vinegar makes about as much sense as ordering a tripe milkshake with your tuna doughnut. But what if you could make wincingly sour flavours taste deliciously sweet? It's easy with Miracle Fruit Tablets.

Miracle Fruit Tablets

The Miracle Berry

Made from natural berries native to West Africa, these taste-twisting pills contain a rogue glycoprotein molecule (whatever that is) that binds to the tastebuds causing sour things to taste sweet. Simply pop one on your unsuspecting tongue, wait for the freeze-dried jungle juice to work its magic and prepare to be astounded. Lemons taste like toffee-ish lemonade, vinegar tastes treacly and Guinness tastes like a stouty, chocolately shake. Even sprouts seem fruity. Eat something sweet and it's like a sugar volcano erupting in your gob. Incredible!

Miracle Fruit Tablets


Tastes like toffee!

Each pill rewires the way your palate perceives flavours for up to two hours, so you've plenty of time to try tons of previously unpalatable things, from raw radishes to neat Tabasco. The possibilities are endless, the sensations amazing. Even foodie sceptics are going gaga over these taste-distorting tablets.

Taste-twisting Tablets

Ideal at dinner do's, Miracle Fruit Tablets are causing a major stir across the pond. 'Flavour tripping parties' - where daring epicures gather to pop pills and nosh on unlikely food - are all the rage in New York. The whole thing really is berry bizarre.

Apart from their 'look what I'm eating without wincing, putting my hands on my head and crossing my legs like Benny Hill used to' comedic value, Miracle Fruit Tablets can help satisfy sugar cravings without any calorific consequences.

Indeed conspiracy theorists reckon the sugar industry tried to sabotage research into miracle berries back in the 70s. But they also reckon Elvis stacks shelves in the Co-Op in Luton, so we'll keep an open mind. Crazy theories aside, we really can't overstate how mind-blowing these strange little pills are. But, as you can imagine, demand is nuts and stocks are limited. So get ordering. Sweet.

Why is this no longer available? I really wanted to give it to someone as a Christmas present! Can't you bring it back?

I got these mind boggling little tablets in my stocking and leaving my presents I tested them out immediately. First I bit into a lemon, which was a unique flavour in itself, it was like orange juice mixed with pineapple. Next was HP sauce, tomato ketchup and salt and vinegar crisps. The HP sauce was like sweet and sour sauce, tomato ketchup was like sweet Marmite and the crisps were a strange ordeal, like eating crisps and having orange juice in your mouth at the same time. And finally firebox, I did try out the pineapple, and wow it was cringe worthily sweet, I was wincing and the pineapple was so sweet it was almost sour. Anyway, this is a truly awesome product, and after many laughs with my blind folded brother I will soon be restocking. Now where's my kudos for reviewing the pineapple! : )

This thing is amazing!! It makes things tastier. Lemons taste like lemon sherbet. Dark chocolate tastes like normal chocolate. Another thing is it lasts about half an hour. All in all these are worth every penny and I've only had one tablet!!!!

These are great and definitely worth a try! After placing one of the tablets on my tongue I realised that even their own taste was quite pleasant (kind of like a multi-vitamin) after a few minutes of rolling it around my mouth and tongue (to maximise it's effectiveness) it has all gone, but the magic lived on! I proceeded to my cupboards to try the effect on some everyday condiments, Vinegar, Soy sauce, Jif lemon, all relatively sweet considering their usual face-wrinkling qualities (although I wouldn't recommend too much of either as it can still play havoc with you stomach). Then my little brother presented the ultimate test for these bitterness converting capsules, the most bitter substance known to most, EARWAX! I'll spare you the imagery, however upon tasting, NOTHING! No bitter after-taste, no cringing, no gagging! These tablets are little Miracles to the taste buds.
