How To Eat A Banana: You’ve Been Doing it Wrong!

Fri Oct 20 2017 | 599 Views

Apparently, we’ve all been doing the one thing that monkeys seem to be able to do right. You could go on peeling bananas like you’ve always been, or you could see this and take some notes. So this is us telling you how to peel a banana because you clearly haven’t been doing it right all of these years. Plus, it’s going to save your time!

Step 1: Grip The Banana Right

If you’re done chuckling to yourself at that innuendo, you should hold the banana the other way up. That is, the stem should be on the bottom, and the dark/black thing on the top. That gristly thing you see there? Well, that’s the remainder of what’s left behind after the flower falls off.

Step 2: Pinch The Tip

Now that you’ve located the tip, you’ve got to pinch it with your thumb and index finger.

Step 3: Pull It Down

Pinch and pull. It’s as simple as that. Once you get this right, you’ll never want to go back to peeling bananas the same old way.

Step 4: Peel Back The Other Panels

Just peel them all back till you can see the beautiful flesh (?) of the banana. Now even minions will be proud of you (BA NA NA…). And monkeys will want to be your best friend. Unless you’re scared of them, in which case, sorry.

Here’s a helpful video that illustrates exactly what we mean. It’s also funny, so you may not want to drink water while watching this.
