If you like pineapples, this hack circulating around the web may make you question everything you thought you knew about the fruit. As Insider reports, the video from TikTok user dillonroberts22 shows the so-called correct way to eat a pineapple, and it looks a lot more efficient than the way you're likely familiar with.

Preparing a pineapple is normally a multi-step affair. After slicing off the spiky outer layer, you have to find a way to cut up the fruit that gets rid of that tough inner core. The process requires some careful knife work and often can lead to perfectly edible fruit going in the trash.

The video below shows how easy it is to break down a pineapple into neat, snackable pieces without using a knife. After doing the initial work of cutting out the top of the pineapple, you can pull out long chunks of fruit with your fingers. A pineapple is made from individual berries called fruitlets that meld into one fruit as the plant ripens. Each spiky section on the outside of the pineapple represents one fruitlet, and this video shows that they can easily be pulled apart even after they've fused together.

The pineapple revelation is just the latest example of a mind-blowing food hack that's mystified the internet. From oranges to peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, here are some more foods you may be eating all wrong.
