OVERALL Overall Rating:
I am told that this little fruit is supposed to be fantastic for your health so I was pretty excited to try it. It promises immortality and a clean colon and other very appealing perks. At first it has a sweet happy first impression in your mouth, which is great! I’m going to eat this every day. An apple a day keeps the doctor away but a jujube a day keeps death away! But then it fades to a bland dry apple flavor that just lingers and lingers in your mouth. Plus its so dry that it becomes hard to swallow all the little bits. Maybe you have to stay alive for as long as it takes you to finish the bite, which turns out to be forever.
The jujube is one of the world’s oldest fruits – used in Chinese medicine for the last 4000 years. Also called chinese date or red date.
