Hate it or love it, you can't ignore the fact that Avocados are a storehouse of health benefits. Apart from containing good fats and helping lower cholesterol, studies suggest that they may even help in weight loss. Avocado also has several properties which help in maintaining healthy, glowing skin. The creamy fruit has been trending among health enthusiasts recently for the multiple benefits it offers. From Jacqueline Fernandez to Mira Kapoor, a number of Bollywood celebrities have also tried the humble food in multiple forms. However, comedian Vir Das had slightly different and hilarious thoughts about Avocado, which he shared in a note on Twitter. Take a look:
Speaking about his love-hate relationship with Avocado, Vir Das said that he was all 35 years old when he tried it for the first time. He further narrated how he didn't even know what it was earlier and neither did he care to find out, until the world made him try it and care about it. "Now I eat at least one Avocado a week. Because I lack conviction. Not even because I enjoy it. But because I was told it matters," wrote Vir Das.
As for the taste of Avocado, the comedian wrote that it had practically none of its own. "The taste is quite literally like eating matter. Green tasteless particles that need to be topped up with eggs and toast and mostly approval from an otherwise cruel world," he dryly remarked. He concluded with a philosophical take on Avocados, saying that, "How you feel while reading this, is your brain having an intellectual manifestation of how your tongue feels with avocado on it. This is avocado, you are avocado."
The funny and intriguing rant on Twitter about Avocado received over 1.4k likes. Several users shared their feelings about Avocados in the comments section. While some agreed with Vir Das about Avocado being a tasteless and pointless food, others suggested ways to revamp its bland taste. Take a look at the reactions:

Most overrated fruit ever exist on this planet earth. Tasteless— Mezz Rebel (@MezzRebel) March 30, 2021
I love avocado. I tried it for the first time when I was 19. There is this place- Gong in Pune at Balewadi High Street. They have Avocado Bruschetta in their menu. I had that just once and I went to Gong 14 times in 2 years hoping to reorder, sadly they don't serve it anymore :(— Kruti Mody (@ModyKruti) March 30, 2021
I am 35 and not planning to have an avocado in near future unless the world runs out of all the things that provide nutrition and avocado is the only eatable thing available ????????????— MG (@realist_virtual) March 30, 2021
