When regular fruits no longer do it for you, try to find yourself some symmetrically shaped fruits -- this is especially relevant to students who have exams coming up.

Farmers in Japan have created these pentagon-shaped fruits for a reason. These citrus fruits or Gokaku no Iyokan were created to be handed out as a good luck charm of sorts to students in the Japanese city of Yawatahama. Gokaku no Iyokan apparently somehow means sweet smell of success in exams, which according to the farmers beliefs, will help students do well in upcoming school exams.

Aside from its unusual reasons for creation, using techniques to shape fruits to our desire could catch on quick. Imagine heart-shaped watermelons or square mangoes -- not only would they taste yummy, they would look it as well.
