  • I have, but they were already peeled. I eat them. Cut in chunks and snack on them.

  • Yes, I buy whole pineapples all the time. My husband and daughter both loves pineapples. So I buy it and chop it up and put it in a container in the fridge. I don't like pineapples though...yuck.

  • I do - they are great as a snack! Everyone in my family enjoys them. I don't ever use canned pineapple unless I can't find fresh.

  • I do. I even have a gizmo that peels and cores it all at the same time. I love fresh pineapple.

  • Yes, about once a month or so. Once in a while I forget about them and the go bad.
    They are a yummy snack-treat for the kids...

  • Wish I did. Just don't know how to cut them. You can use them for anything. They taste better fresh than canned.

  • We get them all the time! They are way better than the can!!!! You canuse tehm for anything. One of our favorites is to make an Aloha burger. We make a hamburger and top it with all thrimmings plus teriyaki sauce and grilled pineapple rings!!! Yum
