Tahitian Noni Cafe

While undoubtedly a wonderful state, Utah is hardly the 1st place you’d expect to find nutritional supplements grown in the tropics. Yet it’s the HQ of Tahitian Noni Café – which is opening a branch on the ground floor of Mondrian Cityplace. Noni is a green tropical fruit supposedly used by native Polynesians to boost the immune system and treat respiratory & digestive illnesses. Tahitian Noni Café puts it in tea, smoothies, froz yog desserts, and also does samwiches, salads, muffins, cookies. Other TNC locations: Japan, Brazil, Germany, & Atlanta, GA; is Dallas part of some int’l community or what?

Utah is just like hawaii, except there's no ocean, rain, trees, water of any kind or coconuts.

I sawa a car driving around with a panel stuck to the driver's door, with this company's name on it. I wondered what it was! Noni is another word for grandmother.

that noni is good for you web site makes the fruit look like a martian pineapple. don't the martians like places with wide open spaces so they can land their ufos?

I don't know if polynesians have Nonis, but Italians do.

I'm not Italian but I do believe the correct spelling should be "nonni" with two Ns.

Speaking of bakeries, I was at "The Village Baking Company" in Colleyville this afternoon.

I spied a big slice of lemon- coconut cake being brought to another table so as I left, I asked the diner if it was any good. She said she'd not had it and was not going to as it was "not fresh." When asked how she knew, she replied that the icing was hard and gave away easily (and proceeded to demonstrate same). I'm so glad I didn't get it.

I happen to be a fan of lemon cake. Where else can a person get a good lemon cake around here?

Pomegranate is so last week. Last month, it was mango. This week was Kiwi and next week it's Starfruit.
