If You Were in a Food Fight to the Death, What Would Be Your Weapon of Choice?

It has to be edible, but also an effective weapon. Quora contributors pondered this dilemma. John Burgess, a former US Foreign Service Officer, suggests durian fruit, which has a prickly exterior and a stinky interior:

My first volley would be a barrage of Durian fruits at the far end of ripeness. The chemical assault might end things right there by causing vomiting which, as we know, has an infectious effect in groups. A disabled troop is unable to fight.

My second volley would be with Durian fruits as the near end of ripeness. These hard, spiky fruits would draw blood, break bones, and demoralize the still retching enemy. 

The conquerors, however, will have to be supplied with gas masks and protective clothing in order to occupy enemy territory now covered in Durian slime and vomit.

Which food would you choose?

Should upgrade the durian fruit to jack fruit. While a durian fruit can reach up to 3 kg, a jack fruit can push up beyond 30 kg. A local grocery store is actually trying to sell one of these things, and while it would be nice to try, I don't want to buy the whole thing at ~$60.
