It started just after Christmas Day in December 2016. Snapchat users started posting emojis of fruits on their stories. It then evolved into users saying they were a cherry or blueberry. After that came pineapple, lemon and strawberry. So, how did all of this start and what does it mean?
Here is what they mean
Blueberry = Single
Pineapple = Complicated
Raspberry = Doesn’t wanna commit
Cherry = Relationship
Lemon = Wants to be single
Banana = Can’t find the right person
