As a lover of all issues culinary, I perceive that not everyone seems to be on my degree. Geography, upbringing, and monetary standing are all issues that have an effect on meals literacy, and to guage somebody primarily based on what they eat (or do not eat) is fairly unfair. I am fortunate to have grown up in a big metropolis with meals from everywhere in the world. That stated, some cases of food-related ignorance nonetheless handle to boggle my thoughts. And at present we will formally declare my thoughts boggled, because of a viral tweet from @wifeguyfieri.
The tweet contains a video clip of well-liked YouTuber, TylerTube, discussing a mysterious vegetable he discovered on the grocery store. He holds his new discovery as much as the digicam, saying “I do not even know what that is,” including that “it does not even appear to be a potato.” If he did not know what, like, an eggplant was, that may be extra comprehensible. However to see an all-American bearded dude marvel at a candy potato is de facto one thing else. The tubers are virtually as American because it will get – we’re talkin’ Thanksgiving staple.
The offending clip impressed fairly a formidable response, with customers popping into the replies to share their shock, horror, and sympathy, for the woefully ignorant YouTuber.
Whereas a few of the respondents accepted the video as fact, others have been of the thoughts that it was an act of engagement baiting – a stance that OP rapidly rejected.
Regardless of the case, we’re largely dissatisfied that we could not see his response to some cooked candy potatoes – not even within the full video. What a tease.
