There’s a new trend on TikTok of people eating oranges in the shower. And in the realm of TikTok trends, this seems to be one of the less dangerous and obnoxious ones. Supposedly eating an orange in the shower has several benefits, including.
1. It’s less of a mess. Peeling and eating an orange is messy in general, but being in the shower makes it easy to rinse off.
2. You get an enhanced sensory experience. The shower’s heat is supposed to enhance the smell and taste of the oranges. So your shower may smell and feel more like a fancy hotel or spa.
3. Citrus fruits have health benefits. Getting more citrus into your diet is a good thing. Oranges are a great source of vitamin C. And only about 10 to 12% of adults in the U.S. are getting enough daily fruits and vegetables.
(By the way, eating oranges in the shower isn’t a new thing. It popped up on Reddit in 2015, and made the rounds again a few years later.)
