    It’s Glockamole! Woman Says She Found Bullet In Avocado (Photo)

    category:

    By Cooking Panda

    Most of us are pretty far-removed from our produce. We go to the grocery store and see perfectly bright, shiny and uniformly shaped, waxed items. If it’s ugly or unusual, it gets thrown away, and we go pick out the ripest, smoothest ones from the bunch.

    So when we find something unusual, it can be particularly jarring.

    But one woman who said she found a bullet in an avocado purchased from Sprouts takes that to a whole new level.

    Here’s the photo, courtesy of the avocado buyer’s friend:

    Submitted on June 11, the popular post already has more than 1400 comments and 26,000 points, as of the evening of June 12.

    But how exactly does a bullet get into the green fruit? People have presented all kinds of wild theories, from a kid trying to shoot a squirrel in Argentina to somebody deliberately placing the bullet in there as it grew.

    “Well, even though they grow free range, they’ve still got to be put down in a humane manner,” joked one person.

    Another said that it was “just a flesh wound.”

    “Terrible,” someone else wrote. “I always kill my avocados with electricity.”

    A few people suggested adding jalapeno and lime juice to make “glockamole” out of the creamy fruit that’s now so popular it has an injury named in its honor.

    “The prizes and products they come in sure have changed since I was a kid,” somebody joked.

    One Reddit user who said that they worked in a lab that analyzes “foreign objects found in food items” and that such findings are “an incredibly common occurrence.” Yikes!

    According to that person, who said that their lab runs tests to try and determine the origins of those foreign objects, “glass, plastic, and other things you’d expect to be around in food production facilities” are “fairly common” to find in stuff you were going to eat, which sounds a little worrisome to me!

    Moral of the story: Be careful out there!

    “Don’t tell [the people at Sprouts], they’ll try to charge you extra for it,” suggested one Reddit user.

    Don’t Worry Guys, The Avolatte Isn’t Real

    category:

    By Cooking Panda

    We all know that millennials love avocados and lattes. In fact, there may be more Instagrams of latte art and avocado toast variations than grains of sand on Earth. 

    Just kidding. But seriously, young people today have a severe avocado/latte fetish.

    But how about a latte inside an avocado? A hipster cafe in Melbourne, Australia, has created just that: The Avolatte.  

    If you often find yourself buying $6 lattes and eating anything that comes with avocado on or in it, then the avolatte may be for you. Or not. 

    “It’s literally coffee in a piece of rubbish,” Jaydin Nathan, a barista at the cafe, said to news.com.au. If you consider a carved-out avocado skin “rubbish,” then yeah, more or less.

    The avolatte gained fame after the Truman Cafe in Albert Park posted a video of it being prepared on their Instagram page. 

    The video shows a barista pouring a latte into a mostly carved-out avocado half. He even finishes it off with a graceful foam flower. 

    “We weren’t actually selling them but then someone came in today and wanted one,” Nathan said to news.com.au. Yes, someone actually ordered and was willing to pay $4 for coffee in an avocado shell.  

    The Instagram video was posted alongside a laughing-crying emoji. “It was actually just a joke,” Nathan said,. 

    The avolatte may also be a satire of the ongoing housing affordability debate in Australia, according to news.com.au., or a comment on hipster culture. 

    Ironically, however, after the video was posted, customers have come in actually ordering the thing. A cafe in Turkey is also now serving The Avolatte, according to The Independent. 

    The avolatte has sparked a bit of debate on the internet. The more serious among us believe it is a sign of the end of culture; some find it a humorous satire, while others are salivating to try to it.

    Personally, I’m a bit curious about the taste. Maybe the avocado makes the coffee smoother and creamier, or maybe it’s just like drinking a regular latte except out of a discarded fruit peel instead of a normal cup.

    So, would you try the avolatte?
