We all know kids love popsicles. Why shouldn’t they love them? They’re cold, sweet, and help you feel better when it’s hot outside, or you have a fever. No matter how you spin them, popsicles are fantastic. But sometimes, you run into issues with young children eating popsicles. They might struggle to hold onto the stick. Or, if it’s a popsicle in a plastic tube, they might be unable to squeeze the ice to the top. Thank goodness for moms. They can find a hack for anything.

In a TikTok video by content creator @williamcraft09, he watches a mom use her popsicle hack. He’s so impressed by it that he decides to test it for himself. He’s skeptical at first. But he eventually gets it to work. This information would have been helpful when we were kids. How on earth did we not realize this?

Wow! So, we could have had two popsicles instead of trying to push all the ice to the top? Sigh. The things we learn on social media can often help us. In the case of this popsicle hack, it’ll be valuable for many moms and kids. But are the TikTok viewers convinced of its validity? User @bbop said, “Bro, how did I not know this? It helps, but I'm not sure if this is the way to go compared to cutting the tip.” @Teresa Williams wrote, “HAHAHAHA. I just learned something new. Have fun!” @Angel revealed, “My granddaughter taught me this. When I was 50!” 

Yes, this is quite the hack. We’re not surprised kids know about it. They always seem to be the forerunners of new ideas and customs. This will be the only way we prep our popsicles in a tube before eating them. If you enjoyed this video, please visit @williamcraft09’s TikTok channel. It’s full of entertaining food-related content.
