This Is How to Eat a Pineapple the RIGHT Way

A video surfaced recently of someone eating pineapple "the right way," and the Internet immediately lost its mind. Is this how you eat pineapple?

We thought coring and slicing was the only way to eat a pineapple—until now. If you haven’t been sniffing around Twitter recently, you might not know about the viral video making waves in the food community.

Here’s How to Eat a Pineapple

The video was uploaded on a lip syncing app called TikTok by user @曾凯 (Zeng Kai). It features a pineapple being plucked apart chunk by chunk without the aid of a knife.

This is one weird food idea that actually makes sense. It may be hard to believe, but pineapples are made up of berries, indicated by those spiky pieces. Turns out you can just tear them out, sort of like orange wedges. Who knew?

Here are some other foods you’ve been eating all wrong.

Why Didn’t We Know This?!

The Internet is reacting, some singing the praises of this new method while others marvel at how long it took us to figure it out.

This nifty summer trick is pretty ingenious, but it does have its faults. Picking pieces out of a pineapple means you might get a mouthful of core, which can be pretty hard to swallow. The stringy texture doesn’t make for a great snack, but isn’t it worth it for convenience?

Will you give this method a try?
