Stocking up on your favourite festive sweets and chocolate in the run-up to Christmas seems like a good idea until it becomes impossible to resist temptation.
Well thankfully a woman has explained how you can hide your sweet craving tracks with a hack that shows you how to open a tub of chocolates without breaking the seal, reports Daily Star.
In a video, which has had 1.3 million views on TikTok, the woman, named Maneet, shares what she calls a ” Christmas hack you need to know” as she brings out a tub of Cadbury’s Heroes.
She can be seen showing the camera the sealed tub of chocolates before she demonstrates the sneaky trick.
As she flips the box sideways and presses on it, she says: “Push it in the middle until it cracks and keep pushing around.”
Maneet continues to do so until the lid pops open on its own.
“So now you can open it… without, oh this is amazing, breaking the seal,” the chocolate lover exclaims.
“You can take whichever you like. For me, it’s going to be a Creme Egg. And a Fudge. And maybe a Crunchie. And a Wispa.
“Then you just snap it shut and [the seal] is still on there!”
She also said you could easily prank your family by swapping out the chocolates for other branded sweets.
Since being shared the video has received more than 255,000 likes and 1600 comments from stunned fans, with one person saying: “It’s all fun and games until there are only five sweets left.”
Another wrote: “Lol saving this that’s brilliant,” as a third commented: “Ok I’m running to Asda brb.”
“Creme egg, and maybe a Fudge and maybe a Crunchie, and maybe a Wispa, love it lol” joked a viewer.
But one sceptical fan said: “My mum would still know for some reason.”
