Created by Amsterdam-based food stylist Colette Dike, the starch-replacement fruit made their first appearance on Instagram back in June. But it wasn't until a newer post that the food invention started popping off, with Mashable calling avocado buns "summer's most polarizing fad.
Ehhh. Let's be honest. They're not that polarizing. They're like puppies: cute to look at, but not exactly functional. As Emine Sayer wrote in The Guardian, "The first problem is that cutting an avocado in half crossways just feels wrong. It’s also surprisingly hard to get the stone out. And then what do you do with the hollows?"
All valid points. But that hasn't stopped others from trying the mushy buns out.
