    Pineapple has an enzyme in it that's often used in meat tenderisers. It can make your mouth feel all funny.

    I kind of like the feeling as long as it's not too strong. I love pineapple.

    Sometimes. The yumminess of the fruit makes it all worthwhile though!

    I don't get it with kiwi, but I never eat that much of it. Pineapple kills me, though! When I just sit there and eat a whole pineapple, feeling all healthy and stuff... then get punished

    I get it with pineapple. It doesn't feel too bad though, and pineapple tastes so good that I almost completely manage to ignore the weird feeling in my mouth.

    Pineapples and kiwis both contain enzymes that eat proteins. This helps tenderise meat. THe feeling you are getting is the enzymes attacking you flesh.
