I'd like to eat one on a breezy Marrakech evening, surrounded by similarly colorful lanterns. And then I would head into the market my sissy so beautifully captured below:

It looks a lot like a prickly pear or "tunas" in spanish. I love these things...though I picked stickers out of my hand for days after my first encounter with them.
