Sometimes we never question the status quo because it’s what’s always been done. But every so often, someone comes along to show us we have been wrong this whole time. Most recently, a Twitter video showed us just how wrong we’d been every time we tried to eat a pineapple.
The pineapple is a very complicated fruit. You can’t just bite into it or peel it since it’s got that very rough exterior that resembles dragon hide. So most of us have to hack into it like maniacs in order to get the delicious fruit inside.
However, a recent video had surfaced that shows us there is another, much simpler way of eating a pineapple. Be warned, if you watch it, do it without the sound as the person recording the video chews quite strongly.
The video first appeared on TikTok before making its Twitter debut, where it went viral as people have been expressing their surprise, shock and horror.
“It’s crazy we been doing shit the wrong way for like 50 years and then out of nowhere Twitter making us feel like idiots,” one viewer wrote.
“Should I just drop out of college now or? Why am I learning more on this app!?” another said.
And yet even another person stepped in to explain to people why this pineapple hack exists.
They wrote, “You can do this because pineapples are actually berries. As the fruit grows the individual berries coalesce together. Each ‘eye’ is a single individual berry. They may seem fused together, but if you start from the top, you can pluck each eye one by one.”
