In the social media video, mum Brittany can be seen taking 'a cutie' (mandarin orange) and turning it on its side to cut it in half. Once she has two halves, she simply pushes it from underneath to turn the orange inside out. Voila, easy to pick segments!

Cuties are commonly called mandarin oranges or clementines elsewhere.

In the comments, Brittany explained: "I am aware this isn’t an actual orange. We call them cuties here in Texas. Forgive me for not getting the proper name right."

One TikTok user even questioned why we aren't taught these life hacks earlier in life: "What the actual... Why don't we get a life manual with all of this random how to live info in it?!!"

Elsewhere, a mum has revealed how she was pregnant every year for 12 years - and it's official, women are superheroes!

The video was shared on Instagram page @todayyearsold and followers can't stop gushing about how incredible the mum is.
