SHOPRITE CUSTOMERS FIND A SINGLE KIWI SLICE IN EACH SHRINK-WRAPPED FRUIT. WHY?
In a video posted on Wednesday, TikTok user Katie (@kthehl) surveyed a wide array of produce—including fruits like watermelon and pineapple—and noticed they were adorned with a single slice of kiwi.
“Can someone explain to me what’s with putting a singular kiwi slice in?” Katie asked viewers. “Does it keep these fresh? I’ve never seen this.”
Commenters on Katie’s video shared their own guesses as to why kiwi seemed to be packaged with other fruits.“Kiwi is known for its ability to naturally tenderize other fruits due to its enzyme called actinidin,” a user said.
