Pineapple is a popular fruit that a lot of people love, but did you know that you have been eating pineapple the wrong way – all your life? LOL.
A video recently went viral of a guy who’s actually eating pineapple with his hands, with the fruit still with its thick covering still intact! What sorcery is this?
Peeling a pineapple is such a big task because you need to remove its many ‘eyes’ before you actually serve the fruit or get to eat it. With its thick skin and many ‘eyes’, peeling a pineapple can be difficult, especially if you haven’t done this before or wasn’t taught by someone who knew how to peel it properly.

This is the reason why you will find a lot of tutorial videos on the internet about how you can properly and easily peel a pineapple.
There are, of course, a number of ways you can do it, but the ultimate goal there is to peel the fruit in such a way that you get rid of the ‘eyes’ before you slice it for serving. You still have to aim to keep as much fruit as possible, or you’ll end up wasting a lot of the juicy fruit if you slice off huge chunks just to avoid the eyes and the thick skin.

One of the most cost-effective way of doing this is to first cut off the top and the bottom, before removing the skin in strips as thinly as you can without leaving much skin, too. Then, you can either use a small knife to carve out the individual eye off the fruit or you can slice it in a slanting way to remove several eyes in one go. Then, you simply slice the fruit to the size you want, with or without the thick core.
But the video shared by @lewismccluskey on Twitter simply amazed netizens because the guy wasn’t using any knife at all and was actually eating the pineapple so easily… How did he do it?
Just take a look at this impressive video:
