TikTok videos providing different hacks have always received wide attention on the platform. Many of them provide food hacks, such as how to get a bean and cheese burrito from Chipotle for $2 or how to get free food from the McDonald’s app. In a viral TikTok, a man adds to the slew of ‘food life hacks’ by demonstrating the best way to eat Oreos where it won’t make a mess.

Popular TikTok account @actuallifehack typically posts content about easy ways to do things for his 164,000 followers. In this video, he demonstrates how to eat Oreos with a fork. The nine-second clip shows a batch of Oreos and a glass of milk on a kitchen counter.

“Actual life hack, Oreos are meant to be eaten with a fork,” the creator says in the video before taking a fork and sticking it inside the cream of an Oreo. He picks it up and dips it in the milk before munching it.
