Pineapples are delicious fruits. Their lovely sweet and sour taste, along with their refreshing juiciness makes them a favourite of many. However, pineapples are not very easy to cut. They have a rather rough exterior which can be difficult to cut through without the right tools and techniques. This is why certain people prefer buying pre-cut pineapple slices from stores and markets. However, a recent Instagram reel may change your preferences. Titled 'How to Eat Pineapple Like a Pro,' it has been viewed more than 20 million times on the platform. The reel was posted by a video creator on his page @foodiechina888. According to him, this "foolproof trick" is a current trend in China.
