‘Unhinged’ TikTok ramen hack has viewers ‘grasping at straws’

August 25, 2022
A TikTok user has gone viral after sharing her “unhinged” ramen hack on Tuesday. 
The user, @bribri_is_wheezy, uploaded a video where she shows how she uses two reusable straws to both eat the noodle and sip the broth using one hand as the song “Bad Habit” by Steve Lacy plays in the background.
“Perhaps this is unhinged, but my pro tip is I eat my ramen at home with 2 reusable straws so I can pick up the noodles and slurp my broth with one hand,” the user wrote.
