Taste of summer

If I had to sum up the taste of summer in just one word, it would be peaches. And it's not just because it is in season this time of the year; I think it has to do with the slight crunchiness as I bite into its pink and creamy skin, its sweet, tangy flesh and the juices that drips down the side of my mouth. Messy but delightful, very much like summer itself.

What does summer taste like to you?

Mango. I could never get into peaches - something about that furry skin. Oh, and cherries. Lots of cherries, but if I was to say a taste, it would be mangoes or mango wine.

Sigh. Peaches. I'm craving them. On a warm summer afternoon, before reading a good book and going for a swim.. Ok I got carried away. Back to gray and rainy Paris.

Peaches are summer, without doubt!
Try them with brown sugar, and fresh whip cream. Yum..The organic brown sugar taste the best

For me it's cherries, my favorite (or one of favorite) friuts.

Honestly, I prefer nectarines than peaches, 'cuz I dont like the skin of peaches.

Let me think for a second.

Hmmm. I would have to say that summer tastes smoothies... Specifically strawberry-banana smoothies.

I do not know if this is because summer to me really tastes like smoothies or if I'm just really obssesed with smoothies. :)
