One of the latest trends on TikTok is a hack that makes an empty peanut butter jar full again. Here’s what you need to know before giving it a try.
One of the latest topics of interest on TikTok is peanut butter, thanks to a recent video which seems to show how people can magically replenish their supply. Since the original went live, many have recreated the video, albeit with mixed results. Here’s what you need to know if you want to try the hack yourself, or make your own TikTok video version, including some tips on how to get the best results.
TikTok is a platform which works best with quick videos, and due to this, trends and challenges have routinely popped up on the platform. While they start on TikTok, these challenges often make their way to other platforms as well. One of the most recent examples of this was the ‘Vogue Cover Challenge’ which quickly took off on TikTok and just as quickly, made its way to Twitter and elsewhere.
The peanut butter hack appears to have started going viral when TikTok user ShopSplat uploaded a video. The hack revolves around taking a near empty peanut butter jar and spinning it continuously for a period of time. After which, and as if by magic, the jar is suddenly full again. While the original hack video went live back in April, it has been replicated by many other TikTokkers, and still is, with both #peanutbutterchallenge and #peanutbutterhack routinely used.
Repeating The Peanut Butter TikTok Hack
The first thing to be aware of with this hack, is that it doesn’t make more peanut butter, it simply redistributes the amount already in the jar, That is, when it actually works, considering many have replicated the video and the results have been inconsistent. While some do seem to get the desired effect, others have found that for them, the hack doesn’t work at all. What appears to be the key here is how forceful and frequent the spins are. Essentially, the harder the jar can be spun, and the more times, the more likely the results will be better.
For those looking to make their own video, there’s nothing too complicated here, considering all that’s needed is a jar of peanut butter and enough space to spin the jar. However, one way that might help to generate better results is to actually use the sound from the original video. TikTok allows video creators to sample the sound from one video to use in theirs and this is often a way to add to a challenge on the platform. While using the original sound to record the video won’t help with the force issue, it can be a measuring stick to ensure the jar is being spun for as long as it was in the original. Again, even when using the sound, some have noted mixed results, and that might be due to the level of force used. If nothing else, this TikTok hack appears to be a good way to make sure you get the absolute most out of your jar of peanut butter.
