Early Monday morning, rapper Post Malone asked Twitter a question many had never considered before: “Is meatball an fruit?” The Grammy-nominated musician’s tweet wasn’t grammatically correct, but fans still understood what he was asking and nearly 2,000 have responded to his query.
Some say yes flat out, others agree it is if there’s tomato sauce involved because tomato is a fruit. A few folks even questioned the rapper’s state of mind at that late hour, some seemed split on the issue, and one even wondered if that would make ground meat juice.
But then Bon Appétit weighed in with their expertise on whether or not a meatball is considered “an fruit” and simply said, “No.” Case closed, sorry your meatballs won’t count toward your fruit servings.
