When it comes to eating favorite foods, everyone has a quirky preference, like Kourtney Kardashian’s hyper-specific method for dissecting Kit-Kats, or Chrissy Teigen licking the cheesy dust off of her Doritos. Now everyone’s favorite N*SYNC alum, Justin Timberlake, has come up with one of the most brilliant (and hilarious) eating hacks we’ve ever seen.

In a video posted to Instagram, the 36-year-old singer is munching on a bowl of raspberries, blackberries, and blueberries before he turns to the camera and asks: “Is it a coincidence that the blueberry fits in the raspberry perfectly?” Wait a second. Oh my gosh, he’s right! You can actually scoop an average-sized blueberry into the top of a raspberry.

“I think not!” he says before popping the ingenious creation into his mouth and calling it a “braspberry” as he takes a mic-drop exit from the frame.

JT fans and Instagram users have gone wild with excitement over this new discovery. Since its posting three days ago, the video has racked up over 3.5 million views and more than 5,400 comments like mind blown!, this is why you’re my hero, and one of life’s greatest secrets unlocked.

Of course, this concept isn’t completely brand new. Many moms chimed in on the post, commenting that they’ve been making this snack for their toddlers for years. There’s even a kid-led tutorial for this smart snack on Youtube from last June.

Nevertheless, Timberlake and his wife, Jessica Biel, will likely continue playing with their food (and booze). Back in 2009, the couple created a custom wine with help from Setting Wines in Sonoma, CA, for their 2012 wedding. The blend was called Blue Ocean Floor, named for Timberlake’s recent tracks at the time. “It has dark fruit characteristics,” winemaker Jesse Katz told Food & Wine. “With notes of blueberry and blackberry.” Coincidence? We think not.
