What Do Acai Berries Taste Like?
When it comes to eating healthy food, there is often a question that plays on everyone’s mind – “Would I eat this if it didn’t have the health benefits it is claimed to?”. Countless people are unconvinced by the prospect of eating healthily if it means they are going to have to eat something that “tastes healthy”. Even the mere mention of healthy food can put people off eating it, before they have the least idea what it tastes like. For some people, the healthy alternatives actually seem to taste better. In the end, it is largely a matter of personal taste.
With a food as largely untried in the so called “industrialised world” as Acai berries, the question is quite relevant. What do they taste like? Well, the first thing to say about them is that they are berries – and there is not a huge divergence between different kinds of berry, in terms of taste. Similar in appearance to blueberries, this accounts for the first impression of a lot of people – they do taste similar. But most people agree that Acai berries are a touch sweeter than blueberries. A good description and one that seems to pop up quite frequently is that they taste like “blueberries mixed with chocolate”.
If that sounds good to you, you will probably like Acai berries. Given what certain health foods taste like, having a sweet flavor is definitely something that will make people more interested in trying them. It is all a matter of personal taste, but Acai berries do have a head start in that they generally get the thumbs up from those who have eaten them.
