In what is surely the product of overabundant grant money, Australian scientists have spent the last decade genetically engineering the perfect piña colada with a coconut-flavored pineapple. Just add rum!

Starting as a quest to breed tastier pineapples, the researchers accidentally discovered what they now call the AusFestival pineapple:

“Taste tests tell us that AusFestival is a winner - it has this lovely coconut flavour, which you won’t find in any other pineapple in Australia. It’s sweet, low acid, very juicy.”

Once the AusFestival hits the market in a couple years, we assume a mai tai version is next on the list.
