When I woke up this morning, I had no idea that a simple text message would alter my life. However, that’s exactly what happened when a lifelong buddy of mine sent along an iMessage to ask if I had heard of the shower orange craze.

I was immediately intrigued. After some quick research, I discovered that there’s an entire subreddit dedicated to the shower orange. It makes sense – everyone loves a nice, refreshing shower beer when the mood strikes. So why wouldn’t the shower be a perfect place to enjoy a juicy, delicious orange?

I knew that as soon as work ended, my first stop was going to be the grocery store. Stocking up on oranges and hitting the shower as soon as possible was the top priority. I understand that I have a responsibility to you, the loyal readers, to give this craze a go and report back on my findings.

To say that eating an orange in the shower is life-changing is an understatement. Your sense of smell will be engulfed by the pleasant citrus aroma as you first open up your shower orange. The peel can be disposed of right on the floor as you dig into one of nature’s finest treats. The worst parts about eating an orange is that it tends to make you very sticky. Well, therein lies the beauty of the shower. The sticky unpleasantness will be washed right down the drain by the water, never to be worried about again. I came to the realization that I can’t eat an orange anywhere other than the shower from now on.

Have you tried this craze yet? If you have, hit us up on Twitter. I want to know if you enjoyed it as much as I did. If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for? Also, what other fruits would this work well for?
