Just so you know, there actually is a fruit that changes how you taste a good number of things, particularly sour and spicy foods, but it looks nothing like a photoshopped watermelon. It’s named synsepalum dulcificum, and while the name is a mouthful(it’s also called the miracle fruit, sweet berry, etc), the berry itself is quite small, but it’s nothing much if you eat it by itself by yourself. It’s apparently best to have a sort of “flavor-tripping party”, so it’ll be a shared experience, as this NY times article can testify. Guests came to the consensus that “limes were candied, vinegar resembled apple juice, and goat cheese tasted like cheesecake”, or as it says here, beer can taste like chocolate, while hot sauce can taste like a donut.
It’s been around for a while, it’s not illegal, and it has no known side-effects. Problem is, it’s a bit hard to get these, and at that, it’s $2 per berry. In any case, fuck. I’d still wanna try this out.
