Forgot that 'ready to eat' avocado isn't remotely ready to eat


#1

Fucking cunts


#2

Don’t buy avocados from a supermarket. Ever.


#3

Sainsbury’s ones are usually fine.


#4

I know Lifehacks and all that are bullshit but I’ve found this tip pretty reliable:


#5

those ripe and ready ones are usually two in a sealed pack so you can’t really get a good feel. worth paying extra for individual ones imo.

(n.b. did not read article)


#6

Barleysugar is FURIOUS with these simple Avocado tricks that h_y_g knew. #6 had me SPEECHLESS.


#7

The tip is to peel the stem off.

If it doesn’t come easily - not ripe
If it’s green underneath - good to go
If it’s brown underneath - past its best (but lets be honest, you’re still going to eat it, unless it has those weird stringy bits in it).


#8

then i stand by my point!


#9

You could easily knock a stem off in a two pack. Whether or not that is morally acceptable I leave to you a your god.


#10

you start off by picking avocado stems and what next. walking around a supermarket eating grapes you haven’t paid for? no thank you.

#12

abandon all hope ye who enter here


#13

Realised it wasn’t even unripe. Was just hard from being in the fridge hahahahahahaha

Avocado is disgusting and makes me feel sick anyway :relaxed:


#14

I’d say at least 50% of Avocados I get are either mouldy, or never ripen, or suggest theyre ripe but the FLESH is pale and disgusting. I just can’t take the emotional roller coaster of avocados. I won’t be a victim of their lies anymore


#15

I’ve realised I just can’t eat them. Make me feel nauseous as fuck.


#16

This also explains why I get stomach ache after eating burritos sometimes - the guacamole that often comes with it e.g. Wetherspoons thanks for reading


#17

Never bought an avocado :avocado:

do I get a dubious badge of honour for this?


#18

Yeah, two measly, stinking grapes. (Watched this episode yesterday)


#19

oh my God I feel horrendous help me


#20

how am I allergic to the healthiest food in the world
