I started my day with another awesome session of Cardio Kickboxing. This class was a little rough today due to the fact that I rocked it last night. I had the day off today and wanted to take advantage of attending it as my schedule usually only allows me to go once a week. So back to back kickboxing made me a bit sore but it was such a great feeling.
Today was also a day in which I wanted to indulge in the PEAR COMPEAR challenge. Aneta at Confessions of a Rambunctious Runner and I have talked about reviewing fun & exotic fruits. Our lovely pick for this week was the Prickly Pear.
Now how to eat such silly looking fruit? It is actually fruit of a cactus which I did not know before this project. With the name like pear I had my suspicions on how I thought it would be.
Hard to gage after his explanation. I found it to taste of watermelon, very watery. But not a whole lot of spunk. I thought the juicyness would hold a new and exciting taste but it was calm and unexciting. I did however like it better than the persimmon.
I was even more surprised to read Aneta’s comparison which was very similar! Let me know if you have had the Prickly Pear experience and feel free to compear the pear with us!
