I’m eating a tamarind for the first time. I’ve had them in candies or other things, but never straight. On the outside, they look like a giant peanut. Inside, they’re covered with a kind of threading surrounding the fruity part, with hard seeds inside. You can’t eat most of it…only the thin fruity covering around the seeds. It has a kinda sweet/sour A1 fig newton taste. Not bad or anything, but I don’t know if I’d go out of my way to buy them.
