    I am weird. When I take a bite of anything which has coconut in it, for some reason I envision the tropics to where I just “feel” like I am in the Caribbean somewhere. Do you feel the same way sometimes?

    My favorite tropical fruit?
    I don't have a particular favorite because they all have beautiful, phenomenal colors:

    Grouping the fruits in a single image creates a diverse mélange of various colors that truly make them appealing to the eye.
    For me, taste has nothing to do with determining my favorite fruit.
    I rely solely on the looks, and tropical fruits have no downsides in terms of their colorfulness.

    Too many to choose from, that is for sure. ;) (Reaches for small box of ‘Mike & Ike’ [fruit candy])!

    Hmmm. What exactly is cashew fruit?

    I guess I can just Google it but, is that like (tropical) fruit in a bowl just after you SNEEZE on it - lol? :confused:
    I feel the same way about coconut. But, I learned from that Tom Hanks movie, “Cast Away,” that coconut is a natural laxative.
    :walk the plank:
    Thus far, I haven’t been brave enough (to up my intake in coconut) to experiment in the finding out.

    I love coconut, mango, passionfruit and guava.
    Why? They just taste great and coconut has a great crunchy texture and you can drink the milk.
    I even use cold compressed coconut oil on my hair to give it shine and keep moisture in (no split ends now:) )

    As mentioned, what I find really cool is the instant “transformation” (for lack of a better word) which occurs once I bite into a chunk of pineapple or anything that contains coconut! *I can be in the middle of nowhere, ironic as that is, and be able to feel this way - shrugs.



    Eat, (listen ^), drink, and be merry ye pirates. ;)
