Mom Claims We've Been Cutting Kiwis Wrong Our Whole Life, Shares 'Genius' Tip

Fruit is one of nature's most delicious delicacies, but while it is scrumptious to snack on, some are laborious to eat.

Yes, we are talking about kiwis. That furry fruit is full of succulent green juiciness, but as you can't eat the course skin, one has to go to a lot of trouble to cut it up.

That is, until now...

One mom on TikTok has revealed her easy-to-follow hack for dicing up kiwis, claiming that her method is "genius."

Shannon Doherty, a mother of four known on the video-sharing app as @athomewithshannon, posted her clever trick for eating kiwis on May 23, with the caption: "BEST HACK TO DICE A KIWI this is SO GENIUS!!"

She continued: "Tips from Mom of 4! #lifehacks #hack #momhack #tipsandtricks #learnontiktok."

But how does one go about this?

The video begins with Doherty standing in her kitchen, wearing a tie-dye top and a pearl-covered headband, holding a chopped kiwi.

The camera then cuts to her pretending to cut slices of kiwi with a knife, asking viewers: "Hack of the day, have you been dicing kiwis wrong your entire life like me?"

She then holds up a whisk, before saying: "This is the ultimate summer hack. Grab a whisk, twist and turn it in the kiwi."

The fruit then comes away on the whisk and she puts it into a glass bowl, and exclaims: "What?! Share this with everyone."
