Super Avocado

What's Micio scurrying away from there on the left? Why, it's the Attack of the GIANT Avocado!

No, not really. But the fruit was indeed enormous. I wish I had measured it. It was huge. More like the size of a...I don't of those toy footballs. It overflowed two hands cupped.

The avocado flavor was there but subtle -- other than texture and looks, the fruit really isn't what you would expect from an avocado. It was sweet and refreshing even. Very surprising. I thought for sure it would be too big to be good tasty. Like a giant watered down version of its more normal sized brethren. I was wrong. It's more like a distant cousin with merits all its own. I got it at Seafood City Supermarket which caters to the large local Philippine community. I think they called it a Vietnamese Avocado. A little research tells me that Avocado Shakes are a common Vietnamese treat! Hmm...this would definitely be a yummy shake!
