    Oh my gosh that is unreal. I have been eating these for ever and I have always done it the hard way. Peal it, or try to. Thanks you so much for the information. Makes me want to go get one just to try it.

    Opened one just yesterday, and used the slice and pick method… cut into quarters, pull out as many arils as possible into a bowl of water, remove the pith, pour into a sieve and eat… I’ll have to try the “smack the back” method… will likely lose less arils that way!

    Are you serious! It was that easy all along?! I feel so….yeah….That easy all along. I am so posting this to Pinterest, because it is absolutely pin worthy. Who would’ve known!

    I really did this the hard way. After cutting in half, I took the seeds out one at a time and enjoyed them. It takes awhile, but,— –my—- what pleasure!!!!

    Thank you for this! I had no idea it could be this easy! I had to try it for myself, and post it on my blog!

    @John316 .. maybe because this is the ‘Blendtec Official Blog’ …. So anything to promote their product…?

    Such a wonderful how-to, I love the idea with the water and really don’t understand why I ever did this without!

    Try tapping gently with the side of a small hammer. Most of the arils dropped out for me! And the peel became quite pliable so it was easy to get the rest out. Yummm!
