In the video, Ryan cooks his microwave popcorn normally, but what he did when he put it into a bowl has changed the game.
Instead of immediately opening the bag and pouring the popcorn in the bowl, he turned it upside down while still sealed.
Then, he shook the bag until the un-popped kernels fell out of the small opening – with the bigger popcorn pieces still in the bag.
The video went viral, racking up 60k likes, with viewers praising the ingenious idea.
One commented: “Wait what? It takes so long to take them out individually and I see this!”
Some viewers apparently already knew the trick.
One user said: “Well yeah, duh!”
Others revealed their odd eating habits with many commenting that the best part of the popcorn was the un-popped kernels.
Someone commented: “I eat the corns too…”
Eagle Dental Care warns against eating the un-popped kernels on their website.
They said: “Un-popped kernels are very good at breaking and cracking teeth.
“Be careful as you devour a big handful, especially if it’s at the bottom of the bag.”
In 2017, it was discovered that popcorn is one of the “top five reasons” people chip a tooth.
Dr Mark Hughes, a senior partner at the Harley Street Dental Group, previously said: “In my 25 years as a dentist, popcorn is easily among the top five reasons for broken teeth.”
