We all know that Tariq, also know to the Internet as Corn Kid, loves corn, but what are his thoughts on other food? The 7-year-old is a good sport about trying new things and giving his honest opinion. In the past, MrBeast got him to try one of his delicious burgers, and Drew Barrymore got him to try corn flavored things, but now he’s dipping his toe into trying an unusual fruit. In a recently posted TikTok on Tariq’s official page, he tries a rambuten fruit for the first time.

After Trying The Fruit, Tariq’s Facial Expression Said It All!
Tariq is seen sitting at a table with a bunch of rambutan on it. “Well, hello everyone. It’s the Corn Kid. Today I’m going to be trying rambutan,” he opens with. “Obviously, last time my sister had to take off the shell, but anyways, let’s eat it.” He picks up one that’s been already peeled. “I have to eat around because there’s a seed inside. I do not want to turn into one of these things,” he said. At the bottom of the screen, there’s an explanation as to why that concerns him. “Grandma told him once if you eat a seed, you will grow into a tree.” He then says, “Here goes the big boy bite,” as he takes a bite out of the peeled fruit. Spoiler alert! He didn’t like it, which was apparent by the look on his face.
At the top of the comment section, a request was made. “For more of Tariq Tries, comment what you would like to see👇🏾 Have a corntastic day 🌽✨.” Followers of his page commented suggestions and praise for giving the new fruit a try.
“At least you tried it! You are brave and awesome trying new things!”
“Hi Tariq!! Thank you for reminding me to be brave and try new things!”
“what is your take on dragon fruit?”
“He is the epitome of joy and whenever I come across one of his videos I instantly feel better and I just want to thank him for spreading joy ❤”
“Great job trying it! experiencing new things is fun even if they aren’t a new favorite! 🥰”
“Props to Tariq for continuing to try new foods even though he doesn’t always like the ones he tries.”
Tariq Got A Present From Michelle Obama
In another recently posted video, Tariq opens a present he received from the Netflix show, “Waffles + Mochi,” a children’s cooking show that Michelle Obama is an executive producer. “Hello everyone, it’s the Corn Kid. Today we have a special package. It’s from my favorite show, ‘Waffles + Mochi,'” he said as he begins to open the Netflix bag. “First, we have ‘Follow That Food’ by Michelle Obama, and also from ‘Waffles + Mochi.'” He puts the book down and reaches into the bag for another surprise. “Oh, wait a minute,” he said excitedly. “Is this? It’s a ‘Waffles + Mochi’ doll! Oh my gosh. Thank you so much Mrs. Obama. I’m so sorry I couldn’t be there, but next time for sure! Goodbye.”
