Cupuaçu

Found throughout the Amazon basin, the flesh of this fragrant fruit is often used in desserts and sweets because of its chocolatey pineapple flavor. It is also full of nutrients, and has been heralded by some as the next great "superfruit." Due to its thick, buttery flesh, it has been used as a hydrating lotion as well.
