There’s a Mysterious Fruit that tricks your brain into tasting sour flavours as something sweet. Basically, after eating it you will be sucking lemons like they are nectar of the gods!
It’s really hard to grow such a curiosity in most regions, but you can get this unusual snack in a lollie version which works fine too.
Being simply a lot of fun as an amusement in a friendly party it turns an average outing into the perfect picnic date!
Check this video out for a look at the experience first hand:
The traditional picnic “as is” can be… a little boring. Flavour Tripping turns up the spice and makes any date fun to remember.
Of all the picnics Amanda and I have been on this one is definitely one of the best. It’s pure romance, but includes that X-factor that entices you to want to go on more dates (which is hugely important if you want to stay together for a long term).
Note: This is usually a terrible first date idea because the average chick is smart enough not to take pills from a random guy she’s just met online…
They are hard to get at your local grocery store but you can order the lollie version online. I got mine from mBerry and they were great!
Some sellers also stock the fresh miracle berries and post them using airmail. If you’re really hardcore you can also grown your own bush too!
Head to the nearest store and grab a selection of these “picnic foods”. The fresh lemons are a must have, but apart from our list just go with whatever you like (or think you will like on a flavour trip!).
Pack it all together with a nice blanket, cups, knife and some real food. The chillies will taste great, but there’s only as many as you can eat!
It starts as a fairly normal invite to a picnic. When you arrive – start setting up your blanket, cider, cups etc.
Next, casually grab the lemons, Tabasco sauce, sour green apples and place them around, like you would do with any picnic food. Eventually, she will ask why you have brought all this weird stuff. Simply tell her that this is a picnic with a twist, so she just needs to roll with it…
Crack open a miracle berry lollie for each of you. Hand one to her, and then explain that she needs to roll it around her tongue until it’s all gone. Take one by yourself at the same time, so you can experience it together
Then slice your lemon and give her a quarter – unless she’s really adventurous she will still be wondering “what is going on?” so it may take some convincing
Eventually you will get to the “1, 2, 3 GO” part, where you both tuck into that amazingly sweet lemon like a zombie in a kids playground. Remember to watch her face as she’ll have no ideas what is going on!
You should get a good 15-30 minutes of fun, which is enough to get the conversation flowing and make a totally fun picnic date. Move onto the actual food or BBQ stuff, so you don’t get hungry (considering the fact that you are filled with lemon juice)!
The miracle berries are the “features” of this date but you can add even more awesomeness with this trick:
The traditional, cultural image of a picnic is natural, organic and totally hipster. So play on this to add some romance!
One of the best ways is to wrap the picnic food in paper and fabric making it look truly authentic. This takes more effort, but really makes a memorable impression!
If you don’t have these items below already in your date stash – head to the store and pick them up:
About an hour before the date go and take all your food supplies out of the plastic packaging it comes in (you will be amazed at how much wrap there is).
Next, re-wrap it all in some brown paper to look authentic and natural. Add amour to the effect by writing some romantic notes on the inside of the paper, so that as she opens the bundle feels will be even better!
Lastly, pile it all into the middle of the fabric piece, tie it up at the top using a shoelace knot. You should end up with a hipster knapsack that merely screams about a perfect picnic date!
Everyone loves that scene in Avatar when the sun goes down for the first time and all the coloured lights and plants come out. Your partner would love to go there!
You may not have a portable alien world in your backpack, but you can totally carve out your own piece of perfection for this date
It takes about 2 hours to prep before this picnic date since you will need to head to the destination and set some stuff up. This is honestly a lot of effort, but she will totally feel romanced!
Be realistic though – we all work hard, so just go for what seems doable, rather than trying to set up a magazine photo shoot. After all, doing even one of the ideas below is probably enough to blow her away
This has nothing to do with romance, and everything to do with the fact that she’s is not going to get her clothes off with 10,000 mossies around!
Grab some citronella candles or Bug Off! and let them do their job for about 1 hour before you think you need to. Trust me…
