Twitter Found a New Way to ‘Peel’ Pineapple Without All the Mess



Pineapple is one of the most popular, iconic, and delicious fruits on earth. They make us work hard for that sweet taste and unless you have a specific pineapple tool, there’s a lot of cutting and getting your hands all sticky every time you want to satisfy your pineapple craving. Then there is the huge mess it makes and how quickly the rest of the fruit goes bad after you’ve skinned and cut it up.

But Twitter user @KiddMSEd, a grad student from Illinois, saves the day by recently discovering a new way to eat pineapple that eliminates all of the mess. Basically, all you need to do is take off the top with a knife, and then simply pull on the rind to ‘peel’ out little chunks of bite-sized pineapple.

She explains the method, rather excitedly, in a video that has since gone viral with over 180,000 retweets and 500,000 likes. That’s pretty sweet!
