No, it didn’t taste like fruit, instead, it tasted like… nail polish! Very seriously, the content creator goes on to verify that it did indeed taste and smell like nail polish. He wondered what the worker was thinking when he filled nail polish inside the packets of pomegranate. And yes, he instantly spat out the fruit.

Samdish Bhatia, in his caption tells Swiggy Instamart that no one expects a bright red pomegranate like Fidel Castro. But at least the company and its workers mustn’t put the lives of consumers at risk. When it comes to him, he admits to having a burning sensation on his tongue for 2 days, ever since he tasted the pomegranate.

Netizens Investigate This Matter

But Netizens took on this investigation in the comments section. Many started speculating on the reason behind the pomegranate smelling like nail polish. One person commented that it could be because of the yeast breaking down the sugars from the food. And it smelt like nail polish because it wasn’t properly seeded.

Another dished out an important piece of advice — never order peeled fruits from anywhere. Put some effort into fruits like pomegranate otherwise order east-to-peel fruits. Yet another Instagrammer criticised Urban Harvest for delivering rotten papaya, in his case.
