    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!

    After the soothing voice and the interesting factoids, the puns are what I watch this channel for.

    I live in belgium and blackcurrant is possibly my favourite flavour ever

    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.

    Really interesting! But I had to stop watching it because the music was drowning out the narration and it was too annoying to continue. Hopefully the poster will remix the sound so the voiceover is audible.

    black currants taste like mostly like vitamin c, with earthy citrus notes and a dry wormwood aftertaste, with almost a hint of mint. They taste savory if you eat them fresh off of the plant, which isn't a privilege most people in the US get. I'm not european though, I just work in currant research

    The skin of the black currant has a very slight bitterness to it, but not the bad kind, more like how you put bitters in cocktails, it enhances the flavour. I think it tastes like a gown up, slightly sour blueberry

    I was lucky enough to order a small pack of the black current hard candy along with the hurricane candy. Sadly, zi ordered it during that hurricane so I had to wait around 4 weeks before they could finally ship. Anyway, I still have a little of each left and I love the black current taste.

    Currants grow wild up here in ketchikan alaska, never eaten ten because parents always told me not to eat berries that we didn’t know of, they knew they were currants but they didn’t want to put the idea in my head that I can eat random berries in the woods... haha.

    We have a ton of black currants in our garden, but the red ones (we call them "Aalbessen" over here) are great with yoghurt for breakfast/dessert.
    White ones and pink ones are less sour and more sweet in comparison, so they'd make for a good candy flavor as well!
