Mom’s Reaction to Tasting Fruit She Hasn’t Had in 41 Years Is So Moving

If you’re an old-school fan of The Simpsons, you might remember a funny quote from Marge about fruit. In the Treehouse of Horror III, Marge brings out a bowl and tells the costume-wearing kids, “fruit is nature’s candy.” This doesn’t go well, and one kid throws an ashtray at her head. But what she tells the kids is true. The ripened fruit is delicious. Sweet fruit is fantastic, whether it’s oranges, apples, or strawberries.

In a TikTok video by content creator @mayahussein_, she catches a tender moment on film. Her mother grew up in Brazil until she was 17 years old. She surprised her mother with Jabuticaba, a grape tree fruit native to Brazil. But her mother hadn’t eaten it since she left Brazil. The look on her face when she bit into the fruit is just priceless.

Her mother’s reaction is beautiful. You can see that the gesture means a lot to her. She probably thought she’d never taste those sweet yet spicy berries again. Let’s see if the TikTok community enjoyed this loving moment. User @Brenda revealed, “Fun fact: my hometown is called Jaboticabal. I live in Canada now.” @Tamires Gomes said, “Awww. I didn’t know your mom was Brazilian! Jabuticaba is delish, so good!” @PaliPrince1 wrote, “Mom’s love language is food. That’s sweet. You got that for her.”
