    Yes. It is amazing! I hate a lemon after having it. It was the most fantastic tasting lemon I've ever had in my life. I tried some lime juice and it was too very very nice.

    I need to get some more of this soon, shame it's not cheap =/ And whatever you do! Don't try eating a brussel sprout (raw), it still tastes disgusting.

    I like that the FDA classifies it as a food additive. Thus there are no worries concerning legality.

    Moneyballs: Noted. edit: This is speculation on my part, but the article seems to indicate that it affects acids, not strictly "sour" things. It just so happens that acids are generally sour. If brussels sprouts contain no acids (I don't think they do) they'd be unaffected.

    abrp: It's not a mood-altering substance. Its only effect is to make sour things taste sweet for a short time. A few hours at most.

    Also, I find that if I have a lot of fruit or food high in acid with one of these it stops working quicker, I assume that it can only handly so much acid before the proteins that bind to the tounge become denatured. Either that or I get used to the amazing sweetness and it therefore becomes less, amazing.
