13 Signs You've Got An Avocado Problem

If you get serious rage when your avo isn't ripe, read on.

When it comes to food, avocados are royalty.

Global consumption of the creamy fruit is now a £2 billion industry, which has doubled in the last decade.

Back in the day, avocados were eaten with custard as a (rather questionable) dessert option. Thankfully nowadays their versatility means they crop up in anything from smoothies to cocktails.

Experts predict that we're all going to reach 'peak avocado' very soon, resulting in the death of the trend. However we can't see it happening. We're all too damn obsessed.
