9 Food Products You’ve Been Opening Wrong Your Entire Life.

When we open a bag of chips or a can of soda, we never really think about how to do it, it is just instinct, like we know. But you will be very surprised that actually, we don’t always know.

Sometimes we get it completely wrong, and these 9 products have clever little ways of opening that you won’t believe.

Are you ready?


1-Packets of sugar.

We always break the paper from the end, however we are actually supposed to tear from the middle so the sugar falls directly into the cup and we are left with just the wrapper in our hands.


2- Pringles.

 Folding an a4 piece of paper and inserting into the tube makes life SO much easier. You will never get your hand stuck in the tube again. Genius.


3- Tic Tacs.

 Okay this is amazing! So all you have to do is turn the box on its side, and the individual tic tacs should fall out onto the special tab in the lid. I totally didn’t know about this.


4- McDonald’s Coffee.

McDonald’s  now use lids with special catch which can be fixed open, or alternatively torn off to make a small hole. This way you will avoid any spillage! Enjoy your coffee!


5-Nuts about coconuts?

I don’t think many people know about this trick, so I will let you in on a little secret. Look for three black spots on the coconut located close together. Puncture the skin at one of these spots using a screwdriver or a sharp knife, then pop in a straw and…drink!


6-Cream can be a dream.

 The lid on cream can be a total nightmare, but there is a solution to your pouring problems. Simply pull the part of the wrapper located above the tab (in the right-hand photo, at the bottom of the image) crosswise across the top of the container to create a triangular hole. Now you should be able to pour the coffee into your cup without any spills.


7- Cartons of juice and milk.

Give this a go. Pour from the opposite side and I GUARANTEE 100% risk free chance of spilling.



NEVER make a mess when peeling an orange again. All you need to do is cut small slices off the top and bottom of the orange. Then, cut a slit in the side of the orange. The orange should unroll, leaving a nice row of slices.
