Grape Eating Etiquette

Okay, so this is a rather fussy bit of etiquette, but when you are eating grapes in company (do whatever the hell you want when you are home alone, I always say), it is better to remove a clump of grapes from the communal bunch and eat those rather than picking the grapes one by one off the bunch. It’s one of those things that just looks neater.

But getting a clump of grapes off the bunch can be so hard, you say. That’s true, but that’s why we have sharp things such as scissors and knives. If you are really fancy, you can buy special grape scissors for just this purpose.

I should also note that if you are eating grapes with seeds, you should put the whole thing in your mouth, eat the grape-y part, and then extract the seed with your thumb and first finger and put it on your plate. No spitting!

  1. What about when you’re at a happy hour/company events/cocktail party/etc? Surely you don’t keep grape scissors in your clutch? (But if you do, please tell me because that is AMAZING.) I usually end up avoiding the grapes entirely in situations like these, which is sad because I love them!

  2. Thank you for any other inviomatrfe web site. Where else may I am getting that type of info written in such a perfect means? I’ve a challenge that I am just now working on, and I’ve been at the glance out for such info.
