People are vowing never to eat strawberries again after TikTok video shows hidden bugs

Every now and then, the Internet does everyone a favour and throws up a viral video that educates the general populace on things they should really have known already. You know, like the fact your double-bladed potato peeler can peel in both directions. If you liked that s**t, you’d better f**ken brace yourself, because the internet’s now made it apparent that you should wash your fruit and veg!

So, yeah, look, you probably should have been told at school that you need to wash your fruit and veg. Don’t get us wrong, we know that they were probably teaching you inconvenient s**t like literacy and numeracy and you were probably too busy drawing dicks in your mate’s exercise book to pay attention, but you really need to wash your fruit and veg.

In a recent TikTok video, Seleste Radcliffe showed how she washes her strawberries. What seems to have become apparent for plenty of people is that there are bugs on your fruit and veg.

In the video, she says, “Apparently if you wash your strawberries in water and salt, all the bugs will come out.” Sure enough, the bugs come out, and some of the eighty-three-thousand people who’ve watched it are flabbergasted.

We’re not sure whether the people now vowing never to eat the delicious fruits again were washing their strawbs beforehand or not, but it’s possible they were just giving them a bit of a spray and not paying too much attention.

Anyway, what you’ll see in the video is exactly what it sounds like.  The Cloud Mountain Farm Center reckons the tiny worms are “most likely the larvae of Spotted Wing Drosophila, a non-native fruit fly that lays eggs on many different fruits.”

Yeah, fair dinkum, blokes, soak any of your leafy greens and you’ll notice this same s**t. It’s not rocket-science, it’s nature.

Final thought: Look, if we’re super generous and give the benefit of the doubt, we can understand that TikTok is for twelve-year-olds, so maybe we shouldn’t be too harsh. If any of you adults out there aren’t rinsing your fruit, though, you probably need to unf**k that.
