Having a bowl of warm microwave popcorn might be one of your favorite snacks, but that bag holds a secret you may not be aware of!
TikTok content creator @jordan_the_stallion8 explains what he has recently learned about this popular snack.
We are all familiar with that tiny space along the seam that opens up while the bag is popping. We had always assumed it was there to let steam out. But he shows us that's not the case at all. It's actually there so that you can turn the bag over and shake out all the unpopped kernels. And that way, you don't have to worry about breaking a tooth while you eat your beloved snack.
He called the company to find out if this was true. And they told him it was, and it surprised them to learn that not everyone knew about it. He responded, "No, I didn't know that. I don't think anyone knows that.” We sure didn’t know. He then tells us that school didn't teach him any of this, but the Internet continues to help him daily!
The audience was in disbelief. Viewer @cece commented, “I thought without the slit it would explode. Like the space helped relieve the pressure building up in there.” Us too. Viewer @TrinityBigford said, “None of us knew that!” Agreed. Viewer @bee.em.aych commented, “I’ve known this since I was little. I thought it was common knowledge.”
