This Video Of Babies Eating Lemons for the First Time Will Make You Cry

In this video, a number of babies were given lemons to suck on and then filmed to see how they would react.
Just as you would expect, most of them were disgusted, but oddly, one of the kids seemed to enjoy the fruit.

This is the work of April Maciborka and David Wile. They release the photos last year but the video was released today. It’s part of an art series they call pucker. in which toddlers react to their first ever taste of the sour yellow fruit that life’s always giving us with the expectation that we make lemonade.

There’s not much to pucker, the photos pretty much speak for themselves. Even when it comes to describing the series, Maciborka and Wile need only two short sentences:

Lemons can be a great source of entertainment. Especially when you give babies the opportunity to taste [them] for the first time!

The toddlers’ reactions — honest as only theirs can be — range from dismay, to confusion, to betrayal, to a few scattered cases of glee:
