Don’t Eat Fried Toothpicks!! Tiktok Trends Sparks a warning!!

Written by on February 6, 2024

South Korea’s food ministry has urged people to not to eat green, fried toothpicks after TikTok users shared videos of themselves doing so.

Once deep-fried, the toothpicks – made from either sweet potato or corn starch – resemble jade-coloured, skinny curly fries.

In a social media post the ministry of food and drug safety reminded people that the toothpicks’ “safety as food has not been verified”.

“Please do not eat [them],” the ministry added.

Here’s a video of what TikToker’s are doing:
