“Old refrigerator.” “Old Eggs.” “Gym sock.” Anthony Bourdain elaborately recounted durian fruit as “indescribable, something you will either love or despise…your breath will smell as if you’d been French-kissing your dead grandmother.”
Despite the notoriety of durian as the smelliest food in the world, being banned in restaurants and public transportation, it's also crowned as the “King of Fruits.” This attribution is possibly due to its taste, rarity, or royal size, as it can weigh up to 7 lbs. As an expensive yet popular fruit in Southeast Asia, durian is commonly enjoyed raw and is also incorporated into foods including candies, curries, mooncakes, ice cream, and more.
As the first Asian-American snack brand, we knew we had to take on the challenge of combining this popular Eastern fruit with our Coconut Chips. So after months of R&D, we are excited to finally announce our brand new product: Dang Durian Coconut Chips.
Before you run away, here are some majorly persuasive reasons to try it out:
- Great for muscle strength, skin health, and lowering blood pressure as it is naturally rich in potassium, iron, and vitamin C.
- One small durian contains up to 23 grams of dietary fiber. Great for bathroom runs!
- Don’t get too excited though, because too much can possibly kill you, like it did for a Malysian politician in 2010.
Although Dang is truly inspired by Southeast Asian flavors, we’re not fooling with Durian. Not yet, at least. 😜
