The humble pineapple – a staple in so many refrigerators, and a fruity friend we think we know well. But we’re very, very wrong.
We don’t know the pineapple at all – and in fact we’ve been eating it wrongly our entire lives.
This viral video, posted by a UK student, proves there’s another way to enjoy the fabulous fruit.
Shared by user @dillonroberts22 on Tik Tok, the video has racked up 11 million views worldwide, with viewers stunned to discover that you can conveniently eat the fruit by breaking off the segments of the outer shell, which offers bite sized chunks to munch at your leisure.
With the method mostly eliminating the need for chopping, one social media user has caught the mood of the world by noting, 'It's crazy we been doing **** the wrong way for like 50 years and then out of nowhere Twitter making us feel like idiots'.
Enthused another viewer, ‘I feel like I know nothing. I feel like I’ve been living a lie all this time.’
Raved a third: ‘Possibly the biggest revelation of the last 500 years.’
Excuse us while we while try this out for ourselves.
