Hung Fook Tong Grosvenor Momordica Fruit Drink

What can I say about the grosvenor momordica that hasn’t been said a million times before? I mean it is the most common foodstuff on this planet we call Earth. I can’t remember a day when I didn’t wake up in the morning and pour myself a large bowl of grosvenor for breakfast. Well I must have been but a wee child the last time I went without it.

For those of you who are visiting from other planets or galaxies I will do my best to describe this most familiar of foods. I mean how does one describe something that is as common as water? It is a fruit that grows on a vine that, and it is said to be 300 times sweeter than sugar, but it is naturally low in calories. You may also know it by it’s more commonplace name: monk fruit. When it’s made into a drink like this one it is typically mixed in with some liquorice root. The result is a beverage that is fairly sweet, but tastes like a watered down throat coat tea. I can’t believe I actually typed all of that out since you all obviously know exactly what it tastes like. I’m sure the mental image I painted left your mouth watering and you made your way to the pantry to prepare yourself a nice little snack that will give you the comfort of your childhood blankie.
