    Wow interesting stuff, I've always wondered why my American friends hadn't tasted black currants, it's our go to flavour for sweets and drinks in the uk, I was very disappointed when I tasted grape flavour, I assumed it would be super fruity and yummy but it just tasted of sugar, it was so sweet. Love your vids ty 👍🏻

    My grandmother in Virginia had a black currant bush and would make jelly. I guess that's not northeast enough

    I could have bet it was a disease problem. That's one of the common reasons on why plants are banned along with being invasive or dangerous to the environnement or being used as/in drugs. But at the time environnement protection was not mentionned a lot. And I know blackcurrent is not a drug, mom used to make blackcurrent jam. Delicious.

    It's a really interesting topic, you really are a product of where you grow up since for me purple is always blackcurrant flavour, if colours had tastes that's what purple tastes like.
    Off topic but is that table water cooled?

    How do you guys over in America survive without it?
    Also I've only ever had a few grape flavoured sweets, and they were those weird sticky fruit flavour tube thingies. I can't remember what they're called... But they don't even sell them over here, so my dad had to bring them back. Grape is pretty good, but black current is better 😜

    Black Currant and red currant is one of the most popular berry in Russia. And gooseberry, omg, you must try that berry - so unique flavor and texture. Smooth, sour, transparent and elastic peel, and inside is a jellylike superfine flesh. Unique sweet and refreshing taste. Привет из России!

  • LoriCiani

    My two favourite jams are blackcurrant and apricot. A deep dark berry flavour with a sharp hint of zing, that's blackcurrant, Interestingly, when the flavour is used as a sweet it can be paired with liquorice. Like rhubarb and custard sweets, blackcurrant and liquorice sweets are popular in the UK.
