Pina Colada may now come in coconut flavor after a team of Australian researchers accidentally created a new pineapple that tastes like a coconut.
Researchers at government agency in Queensland revealed that they were trying to create a new type of pineapple that was more sweet but instead came out with a pineapple that tasted like a coconut. Known as the AusFestival, researchers said that the new variety of pineapple will be available commercially in two years.
