Where do you get durian in the USA?

I'd wondered. I've heard so many horror stories involving durians. I understand that some countries even ban them. But when done right, I have also heard that few things taste better.

I can't imagine that. They're really unpleasant. At best, I think that they're maybe edible. I've had a few pre-made snacks with Durian, steamed durian dumplings, and my own semi-failed attempt, and I'll happily say I could eat more of mine than any of the previous (probably due to personal pride more than the food...) but the base note of "poo" is always there.

Our best one, Whines brought over some durian cookies. We opened the bag, and this circle of miasma spread through the room. You could see it hitting people. So we sealed it in a Ziplock bag and threw it in the kitchen trash. The next day, the kitchen was befouled. It's powerful stuff!

That being said, it's also a lot of fun to play with :)
