Everyone loves pineapple. It tastes like a party in your mouth (a very sugary one). But it’s not always that easy to eat because of how tough it is to cut up. The outermost part of the pineapple is like a fruit chastity belt, and it takes a lot of work to get it open.
Or so we thought. Because, as it turns out, eating pineapple doesn’t have to be difficult. Someone posted a video on TikTok of themselves eating pineapple by picking off the little individual wedges (wedges? Yeah, let’s call them wedges because I don’t know a better word) and just eating the perfect mouthful of fruit that it yields.
It’s mind-boggling! The solution to all our pineapple-eating problems has been solved before our very eyes.
But oh my god, the chewing.
People’s minds were totally blown as the video was shared on TikTok.
Then the video was shared on Twitter, where it promptly went viral because come on. Pineapple hack!
The replies on Twitter show just how amazing everyone thought this pineapple eating style was.

The person who posted the tweet made sure to state that it was not him chewing that loudly.

As it turns out, we’re probably kind of dumb for not figuring this out sooner. After all, as BuzzFeed points out, pineapples are actually made up of individual little berries!
Now go forth and share this with everyone you know.
