Call it what you like - a first world problem, a Gen Y addiction or a health fad - you can’t deny the good old Avocado has certainly been trending for a long time. Whether it’s the ‘Avolatte’ or the millionaires telling millennials, ‘if you want a house, stop buying avocado toast’, this green fruit has gotten a lot of press.
Most recently (and somewhat surprisingly), this delicious salad saver/breakfast treat has been in the news again, and this time they’re a major kitchen hazard. The British Association of Plastic Reconstructive Surgery recently encouraged the Brits to be more careful when removing the stone from the centre of avo. They’ve even suggested attaching a warning label due to an increasing number of anvo-hand-injuries. To put it simply, these little green suckers are trouble #brunchisofficiallyruined.
