Frootrees is back for Halloween!

Something spooky is happening in Frootland! The Froots are back and this time they have brought some freaky friends!!


To celebrate Halloween, Tin Man Games have created a brand new Frootrees experience with brand new art and an eery new soundtrack! Pluck the freaky Froot from the Frootree and place them in the correct crates. It's not as easy as it looks though, with ways to boost your score by effectively using multiplier bonuses and the infamous Frootrees upward flick! We have online scoring if you think you're good enough to compete with the rest of the world. Coming soon to the app store priced $0.99!


It's time to get Frootened! Mwu-hahahahahahaha!!

Scariest thing I've ever had to eat : Rice ball in Japan. It was a mix of rice, seaweeds and fish larva so basically the rice was covered in a million tiny black eyes staring at me.

Durian!

I'm gonna post early - the scariest thing I've had to eat is a fruit known as durian:



First off, they are as scary as they look - big and spiky (can be about a foot across) and you have to pry it open with a screwdriver!

I often tell people eating one is like eating custard in an outhouse. The meat is tasty, but I've never smelled any food as overwhelmingly pungent as this. Of course my wife, niece and nephew, heck their whole family love these things to pieces. I have a really hard time eating them!

P.S. Don't bother trying to eat these frozen and shipped abroad, you get all the stink and none of the flavor - but if you're ever in SouthEast Asia, be sure to try them at least once if they are in season, like them or not, there is nothing else like them!

Runner Up: Chicken Feet

Almost forgot Chicken Feet.



However these were only scary the first time, they taste good if made well - once you get used to chewing the skin off of the bones (and spiting out the bones) they're pretty good.

Also good in soup.

Hey Drelbs, we both got that in our country.

Here's mine:
You can find this kind of delicacy in the Philippines and other asian countries. Its a fertilized duck egg with a nearly-developed embryo. The scary part is eating the baby duck itself whole. ugh.

I've come across those on the shelf before, thankfully even my wife thinks those are nasty sounding.

Now preserved duck eggs (centuries egg) look nasty but are delicious, especially in rice porridge!
