Fruit King Freeze-Dried Durian

Having tried baked durian before, I came across this recommended dried Durian, from Sunshine International Co., Ltd. in Thailand, in the local Chinese supermarket, though this one is freeze-dried rather than baked.

This can be eaten in many ways, with milk and vanilla ice cream as a shake, with hot milk as a dessert, or just like it is. Durian is a healthy fruit, it is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Because it's freeze-dried, it is 100% durian fruit, as opposed to the baked variety, which has oil added. How does it taste? Smells and tastes like durian, though the consistency is odd, as it is dry and crunchy. Excellent, and one way I can enjoy durian, before I taste it fresh in Thailand.
