Raw onions can be delicious, but usually only in small amounts — like chopped up on our carne asada tacos or sliced and placed inside of a juicy burger.
We’ve never actually bitten into a whole raw onion before because it doesn’t sound very appetizing. Not to mention, we can only imagine how badly our eyes would burn from the lachrymatory factor, from Latin lacrima, or “tear.” It’s the component in an onion that makes your eyes water, much like tear gas.
However, this kid is on a completely different level. We’re not sure how much he is enjoying the experience, though he keeps munching away!
Watch as he chomps on a raw onion like an apple in the video above.
