Default Jackfruit?

The jackfruit fad was 8 months ago. It lasted about 2 months on
social media. Even my regular grocery store tried carrying them,
but not many people want to invest in a 35 pound piece of fruit.

But it'll be back again in a couple years, just like it was 2 years
ago. Some vegetarians rave about it (once), which means it's not
that great. It tastes like a less sweet and milder JuicyFruit gum
to me.


But compare the ingredients:

Jackfruit: 100% jackfruit

vs.

Juicy Fruit Gum: Sugar, Gum Base, Corn Syrup, Dextrose, Less than 2%
of: Natural and Artificial Flavors, Glycerol, Soy Lecithin, Aspartame,
Acesulfame K, Hydroxylated Soy Lecithin, Color (Yellow 5 Lake), BHT(to
Maintain Freshness).

"to Maintain Freshness" is a good one
