    BuzzFeed spoke to Katie, who said she first discovered the way Sean eats his mangoes on FaceTime about a week ago. "I was laughing because I have never seen anyone eat a mango like that," she said. She then decided to share it on TikTok to see if anyone else did it this way:

    First, Sean cuts all the way around the middle of the mango:

    And exposes the center like this:

    Then, he pops out what he calls the "lollipop" center:

    And he's ready to scoop out the inside of each half with a spoon:

    Katie's video has received more than 4 million views in just six hours because so many people loved the hack.

    However, even though this way of peeling mangoes was new for some, others said they've been doing it this way for years.

    Text from video saying, "I always peel my mangos like that!"

    Sean told BuzzFeed that he only recently discovered this way of eating mangoes himself. "I have only been eating mangoes with that technique for the past couple of weeks, and I just had to show it," he said.

    And Katie tried eating a mango this way for the first time this past weekend. Her verdict? "It is so much easier and I will definitely be eating it this way from now on."
