Last summer when I was in Ghana my friends and I were killing time and the subject of pineapple came up. I was telling my friends how much I LOVE Ghana's pineapples, and I could eat it all day! They were telling me that they like pineapple as well, except for the teeth itching. What? Huh? I thought it must be something lost in translation. We wasted a lot of time trying to figure out if we were losing something in translation. Fast forward to this afternoon.
Kendi and Bright were eating pineapple. Kendi looked over at me and in all seriousness says, "Mommy, this pineapple makes my mouth and my teeth itch!" At the same moment I look over and Bright is literally itching is tongue! LOL!
Hmm.... Is this a Ghanaian thing? Does pineapple make anybody else out there have an itchy mouth (Ghanaian or not)? I'm curious now!
