4/5/2022 - Christmas Island - Country #41

Raise your hand if you knew that Christmas Island was a thing.

No hands?


we're all in the same boat here.

According to Wikipedia, Christmas Island only has about 1,200 residents. And they can barely grow food there. Yep. Researching what to make for Christmas Island stressed me out. Here is the viable-to-error Wikipedia page for you to read so you can get some secondhand stress: Christmas Island cuisine - Wikipedia.

I ended up 'making' what Wikipedia told me to make. It was that bad, folks. I ate tapioca pudding with shredded coconut, Jackfruit, and mango.

Yeppers, I did.

Fun fact: I can't find tapioca anywhere. So I got premade tapioca pudding. I will not be taking criticism at this time.

Nice ripe mango.

Young Jackfruit is very savory. Vegans use it as a chicken replacement.


This was the easiest one, especially since I didn't actually cook, lolz. I missed the nostalgic taste of tapioca pudding, so that tasted good. Coconut provided some great texture and the mango was juicy. The Jackfruit was an interesting texture, but wasn't sweet at all.

Would I make it again? 7.5/10, probably not, but it was a good breakfast
