Internet users are divided over a video of a street food vendor preparing mango juice in unhygienic conditions. The video, shared on Instagram reels by digital creator Wajih Ansari, (@wajihansarii) shows the vendor cutting mangoes with flies swarming around. 

People are reacting strongly to the clip, questioning the hygiene standards of the preparation. The video showing the preparation of mango juice has gone viral, amassing an impressive 3.5 million views and 55k likes. All of this is just within just 48 hours, reported NDTV

In the video, the vendor sifts through a crate of mangoes to select the juiciest ones. Next, they peel and cut the mangoes into small pieces, while a swarm of flies hovers over the box containing the fruit.  

The chopped mangoes are then blended in a mixer grinder to extract the juice, which is later served to customers with crushed ice in the glass. Viewers flooded the video of the street vendor as he prepared mango juice. 

Many found the preparation disgusting and decided against trying the mango juice. Naturally, anyone with a sensible view of the video had opposing comments.  One user commented about how they saw a fly disappearing into the jug right before their eyes while another user jokingly commented “Diarrhea helps with weight loss”. 

Meanwhile, a different said, ” Just Googled it. Hygiene is illegal in India.”. One user even questioned the lack of glass-washing during the process and said “Why did they even wash the glasses?”.

Other ‘making videos’ have also divided the Internet. One such video showcased the mass production of cakes in a factory, triggering angry reactions online.
