After pomegranate and mango, the technique to peel the pineapple comes without the use of tools. Some viral videos show a trick to eat the fruit without having to waste the pulp by cutting the peel. In the clips the users follow the natural “sections” of the pineapple and pull the pulp out of the wedges.
The trend was launched by the @lewismccluskey Twitter account. The post had 13 million views in less than two weeks. While some have reacted positively to this suggestion, others have noticed that the process is more difficult than it appears.
Even the star of Game of Thrones, Lena Headey (who played the role of Queen Cersei Lannister), posted on Instagram a video in which she perfectly succeeds in eating pineapple with this technique.
