Last week I noticed a strange looking fruit in the supermarket.  It didn't look quite the way I remembered (probably a different variety) but I recognised it to be guava, a fruit which grew abundantly in our garden when I was growing up.  I had to laugh when I saw the supermarket was selling them for US$2.25 ... each! 

Guava isn't a typically mainstream flavour and so you can imagine my surprise when I learnt that Choward's, the traditional confectioners, had introduced the flavour.  Maybe this marks the beginning of a guava trend.
