You probably eat your corn on the cob the way most Americans do: you bare your teeth and bite into the row with your cat on your shoulder.

Cat is optional.

But Japanese Twitter user @alovesun went viral this week when he tweeted about a new, exciting way to eat the vegetable/grain/fruit:

Translation: “The thing that shocked me the most after moving to Hokkaido was how they eat corn.”

For those of you wondering, yes, corn seed really is a grain, a vegetable, AND a fruit.

Step by step, you have to:

1) Create some space by taking out a row of kernels;

2) Place your thumb over the neighboring row of kernels;


3) Push the row toward the new space you’ve created.

Buzzfeed even shared a video about it:

Your corn cob will end up looking like this:


Some on Twitter weren’t convinced.

Others offered alternate methods.

But this Twitter user was mighty impressed.

And so are we! Let’s raise a cob to no more corn in our teeth!
