Some say it's the secret ingredient in Juicy Fruit gum.
You either like it or you don't.
When I was pregnant with Tai, it was one of the few things that tasted good to me. Shawn would make me sit outside our round hut to eat it, preferably even further away than that! The smell is strong...and as distinct as the taste. It is sooooo sticky that no amount of scrubbing with soap and water will ever get the residue off your hands. Petroleum jelly works okay. But the bottom line is, if you want to eat jackfruit, don't plan on holding anyone's hand for a while.
