On Friday, students, professors, and interns valiantly took to the Citrus-O-Rama challenge. Six juicy plates of sliced limones oozed piquant and tangy scents, taunting onlookers to take a bite. After dealing with the initial shock to the taste buds and undoing pinched and puckered faces, “contestants” flipped over cards that revealed which sour (and one sweet!) fruit they had ingested. The represented limones included: limón mandarina, limón dulce, limón mecino, limón naranja, and limón criollo.
Watch this clip of participants tasting the limones while attempting to show no reaction to the sour explosion happening in their mouths. What good sports! Felicitaciones!
