Avocados are perhaps the only food with a cult-like following. With so many dishes dedicated to the berry (yes, it’s apparently a berry!), it’s hard to name them all without getting winded.
But there are a few issues with the beloved avocado: it’s tough to work with.
First, you have to cut through a layer of skin, but gently enough that you don’t crush the pit inside or damage the flesh. This requires a precise technique, intense concentration and skills that nobody actually has.
Then, you have to somehow remove the pit without injuring yourself, or wasting half of the avocado itself. It’s basically impossible.
Luckily, some very specific avocado trinkets can help make any avocado lover’s life easier. And, just like avocados, these aren’t just fun toys. They are life necessities!
Why yes, this is a wool sock made for avocados.

The estimated time for the perfect ripe avocado is about 48 hours in the sock. Not bad for a wool sock!
