Giancarlo Stanton is a masterclass in the craft of batting. Smashing home runs comes easily to him. But people have limits, and nobody is a champion in every task. Likewise, Stanton isn’t good enough in a particular aspect, at least according to talk show host Jimmy Fallon.

Giancarlo Stanton is an outfielder and a designated hitter for the New York Yankees. He earlier played for the Florida Marlins. An enigmatic slugger, he is famous for his powerful hitting instincts and is a five-time All-Star player and the reigning All-Stars’ game MVP.

Jimmy Fallon’s special Kit-Kat lessons for Giancarlo Stanton 

When it comes to batting, Giancarlo Stanton is the ‘master of all trades’. But he is not as much of an expert in eating a Kit-Kat. That is what talk show host Jimmy Fallon thinks. 

In an episode on Fallon’s talk show, the host pointed out Stanton’s struggles while eating a Kit-Kat. Fallon pulled up a picture of Stanton holding a half-eaten Kit-Kat. Then the host tutored his celebrity guest on how that is the improper way of consuming a Kit-Kat.

Talking to Stanton, Fallon jokingly said“We know you obviously know how to swing a bat, man. It’s just awesome to watch you. And it’s fun to watch the team that you’re facing against when you come up. Because all of a sudden, they’re getting ready for you, like, ‘Oh My Gosh, What’s Gonna Happen?’ But one thing I don’t think you know how to do. I don’t think if you’ve heard this, that’s not how you eat a Kit Kat..”

Stanton then remarked with a smile, replying that he knows how to eat a Kit-Kat. He also asked what is the right etiquette to eat one. At that, Fallon added, “That’s not the right way. I mean, the attitude is cool. I like the attitude. It’s four different candy bars, not one sandwich. It’s not like a slice of pizza or something. That’s not how you do it.” Needless to mention, the conversation was light-hearted and for the sake of humor. 

Stanton in the ongoing season

Stanton has missed more than a handful of games this season because of injuries. Fitness issues are not ending for the champion slugger, as he got injured again recently. The Yankees, as a team, are still making fine progress amidst inconsistencies. There are fair chances for Stanton to lift the World Series trophy with his team this year.
