Linux_Yes: the smell turns people off. the first time you taste it, its so-so. maybe even a turn off. the second time, its ok, but really not your thing. the 3rd time, you can't get enough of it. its addicting.

Funny, that's what the old 3-toothed Laotian guy said about the snake whiskey. ;)

Seriously, you're braver than myself. I couldn't get past the smell, but I didn't mind the taste of the dodol 'candy' version at all.

Hey now... Lao "Energy drink" rocks. If you get it without snakes, spiders or scorpions in it it's the best booze that you can get for under 1 cent per deciliter.

/ not kidding. A fifth of "White Champa" costs about 75 cents.

Ah, snakeskin fruit. It's actually pretty good (had a few while in Indonesia, though the mango and mangosteen are my favorites there). Once peeled, it looks like giant cloves of garlic, is really crunchy, and tastes like an apple, though much less juicy. If you've never been to Indonesia, I highly recommend it... one of my favorite countries to visit.
