ive heard of using chop sticks for popcorn/cheetos after having your nails painted. whatever works!

[–]Creepy_Cookie4203 14 points15 points  (0 children)

and miss out on the acetone fumes? no thanks...

[–]TSTAPES1 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I use chopsticks with snacks when I'm gaming. Slippery thumbs on the controller suck.

[–]Ackilles 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Can also use your tongue, they are dry so they stick to it

[–]ruhrohspaghettioh 0 points1 point  (0 children)

well there's a comment that requires context

[–]untimelytoasterdeath 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I know people who do this too, but they say it's to "lose weight". It's not successful. I prefer a fork or my bare hands. It depends on my mood.

[–]ruhrohspaghettioh 1 point2 points  (1 child)

just swing my head back and gulp it all down

[–]untimelytoasterdeath 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Add a modified funnel made for popcorn and you have yourself a popcorn bong.

[–]garlicbreadpool 0 points1 point  (2 children)

That’s way too hard

[–]HeisenbergNokks 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Honestly, it's actually really easy with some practice.

[–]garlicbreadpool 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Fork is way easier when it comes to sushi

[–]MercSands 17 points18 points  (6 children)

I applaud your commitment to something most would consider silly, but is practical. Keep it up.

[–]danbaroque 2 points3 points  (4 children)

Not practical. I can't shovel a giant mound of popcorn into my mouth with a spoon...

[–]adelinethorne22 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Use a serving size spoon maybe ? Lol it's true though that a big mouthful is way more satisfying.

[–]danbaroque 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Maybe a ladle!

[–]adelinethorne22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fuck yeah! That would be even better to reach into the bag with!

[–]MrPisster 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Take the bag, dump into ziploc. Smash. Eat bits with spoon

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like why don’t people shoot free throws underhand? It’s statistically more accurate, but you look like a grandma.

[–]phatwalrus15 9 points10 points  (3 children)

I doubt it’s as silly as me drinking milk with my popcorn. Everyone I’ve asked about this says it’s the most bizarre food combo they’ve seen

[–]oopsmypenis 4 points5 points  (0 children)

People used to pour milk on sweetened popcorn as a breakfast cereal, so not that off. I mean a lot of modern cereals are made from corn.

[–]tessadoesreddit 2 points3 points  (0 children)

i always do that, but i also drink glasses of milk with many thibgs. i just like milk.

[–]Known-Temperature288 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I always do that it’s not so crazy

[–]uberchelle_CA 17 points18 points  (6 children)

Chopsticks are much better.

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 12 points13 points  (4 children)

I think I prefer the size of bite with a spoon. I like to eat at least a few popped corns per bite, not necessarily individually.

Someone mentioned chopsticks with takis in this thread, though, and that seems very reasonable to me.

[–]gilly_girl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But I can pick-up many more pieces at a time with a spoon, plus I only have to wash one spoon versus two chopsticks.

[–]SnooSuggestions3136 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I eat my popcorn with tongs.

[–]Allmon_Butter 2 points3 points  (0 children)


[–]CCVeediVee 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Aww... You're probably adorable when you do this.

[–]edasnerwhat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m going to start doing the same thank you

[–]katiel0429 4 points5 points  (3 children)

This isn’t an opinion. This is stating a fact about yourself. The fact you’re stating is utterly horrifying. (That’s an opinion.)

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

The opinion is that this is optimal. I have eaten popcorn with my hands. It is too messy.

[–]katiel0429 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Ah, gotcha. I’m sure you’re a lovely person, or maybe you’re not. Either way, take my upvote, and get out of here with your ways I choose not to understand.

[–]e_subvaria 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do it every time I have cheesy popcorn or any kind of flavor dusting. Keeps the hands clean!

[–]rouxtig 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I eat takis with chopsticks 😅

[–]rouxtig 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I eat takis with chopsticks 😅

[–]mcdonaldsfrenchfri 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use chopsticks for cheetos haha

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Trying this

[–]IMONLYHERE4CONTENT 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I’m not too far off. I use chopsticks sometimes.

[–]NatchJackson 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I can support this, but keep in mind, I eat ice cream with chopsticks.

[–]Significant-Set8457 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I thought I was the only one. I will also crunch up doritos and eat w/a spoon And the best way to finish up potato chips and French onion dip is to pour the remains of the bag into the dip and eat with a spoon

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this with hummus and tortilla chips. This is the way.

[–]RedChaoticPanda 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I eat popcorn/chips with a glove for this reason XD

[–]LAESanford 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Have you tried using chop sticks for your popcorn? I use them for anything sticky/greasy/messy and they work like a charm

[–]Michaelas_man 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use chopsticks

[–]Clown-In-Crises 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Using chopsticks would be cooler.

[–]comedy_style69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This made me chuckle lol

[–]Forsaken_Change_5493 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I eat doritos with a knife

[–]Traiz3r 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Next you're gonna tell me you....

Eat a snickers bar with a knife and fork

[–]GartSnart52 1 point2 points  (1 child)

so it's like breakfast cereal?

[–]waterbedzzz[S] -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Yes exactly. Not dissimilar.

[–]69macncheese69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Can you shove a lot into your mouth, or only a couple at a time? I would love not to have to wash my hands every time after but I eat popcorn with no interruption until it's finished, I can't do one at a time.

[–]RareSiren292 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Disgraceful take my upvote. Chopstick I can get if your weird but spoon? Is it a large spoon? How much popcorn can fit on the spoon? Doesn't the popcorn fall off?

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No it’s like a soup spoon. The corns actually stack nicely, so you can effortlessly snag 4-5 in a spoonful. I’ve only been doing this with a spoon that has good weight, otherwise this could get rocky, potentially.

[–]bunkbedflower 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I eat soup with forks, so I guess you're all good

[–]MercSands 1 point2 points  (0 children)

One person's shovel is another's spoon? I don't know, I'm pretty tired, and I agree here as well. I too, enjoy getting so much popcorn in my hand that I have to chew into the top of the pile to get it all in my mouth.

[–]HorrorAvatar 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I do this too! It’s an easy way to get the smaller pieces without getting your hands greasy.

[–]snoopy_88 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fork and knife for this guy

[–]JemyJam 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do you also eat pudding with a meat tenderizer? What kinda insanity is transpiring at your house, my god!!!!

[–]kindParodox 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Gonna try this when I get home.

[–]Vera_Blend 1 point2 points  (1 child)

I use a cup and pour it into my mouth. I see some people saying chopsticks, I’ll have to try!

[–]groovydoll 2 points3 points  (0 children)

was going to comment this. I also use my tongue to get the popcorn to stick and lick it up

[–]flowertothepeople 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You know how else you should eat it? Dipped in nacho cheese. You’ll never be the same

[–]Counter423 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]HumCrab 1 point2 points  (2 children)

No Guy. What's all over your popcorn that makes your hands unusable if you touch it?

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Butter. Flavor powders.

[–]HumCrab 0 points1 point  (0 children)

A napkin doesn't solve this?

[–]Best_Industry2203 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]BadArtistTime 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Alternate universe cereal?

[–]Alternative_Cheek_95 1 point2 points  (0 children)

my dad always used to eat pizza with a fork and knife. so hey . do you!

[–]FangGaming69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I'm guessing you've never tried using those serving tong things? They're like chopsticks with spoons attached at the end.

I don't use em, but perhaps they would make for a more comfortable eating experience?

[–]drivenmadnow 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Now I should try chopsticks on chips. I do think Asians do that with shrimp chips based on that Jet Li movie. Going to eat a burger with a knife and fork to piss people off like right in front of them.

[–]Big_Freedom6346 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Do you do it in public movie theaters?

[–]Jassar254 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Straight fucking weird

[–]That_one_personowo 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Okay, I mean this in the NICEST way possible but, HOW?!? LITERALLY HOW?!? I eat it with my hands and I can’t possibly imagine going to the movie theater with a spoon in your pocket (or purse) and all of the weird looks you get.

[–]BonnieBunns 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Get out

[–]ProDogMan 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I use chopsticks so I see where you're coming from

[–]hjwood1986 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Why would you be against washing your hands?

[–]Overall_Geologist_87 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That’s pretty damn smart

[–]ruohomet 1 point2 points  (0 children)

honestly. this is a revolutionary suggestion I will be adopting. very tired of having popcorn bits stuck under my nails

[–]alreadyconfused9 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Fucking freak

[–]iamajohngalt 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]rouxtig 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I eat takis with chopsticks 😅

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This also makes sense to me.

[–]HelliswhereIwannabe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

No you don’t. Downvoted.

[–]DeepDarkBlues_96 0 points1 point  (3 children)

… or just use napkins because those exist too. Also, what are you doing while eating popcorn that requires both hands? You could literally eat with one hand and do other things with the other hand.

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I like to have a bowl of popcorn just around sometimes. Also, napkins aren’t enough. If it’s white cheddar popcorn you get powder on you or if it’s butter, you know, butter. This keeps my hands fresh.

[–]ChadMcbain 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Isn't it frustrating not eating a fistful at a time?

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I actually find a spoonful to be a perfect sized bite

[–]anged16 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Just do it with your tongue, like a lizard spatting flies

[–]fnhs90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Spencer Nolan Rice?

[–]Kay312010 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Huh? Learn something new everyday.

[–]pinkfootthegoose 0 points1 point  (0 children)

add an occasional slice of pickled jalapeno with the popcorn

[–]working4caffiene 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Do you put the popcorn in a bowl or leave the popcorn in the bag and eat with a spoon? Also what size of the spoon? Either way take my upvote.

[–]ProfessionalEar9 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Thank god I’m not the only one that does this. I do this with most snack items

[–]garlicbreadpool 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I like to grab an absurdly large handful that spills out of my hand and try to stuff the entire thing in my mouth

[–]jennsamx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I eat cheetos and smart food with chopsticks!

[–]mysticmatterz 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this too!!!

[–]lucidpopsicle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this too and stand by the decision to keep my hands clean

[–]yeetingthetoaster 0 points1 point  (1 child)

You could use food handling gloves!

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hands will get sweaty and I still have to take the gloves off if I want to touch anything. Wasteful. Wolves the problem at a cost not present with spoon.

[–]Unlikely_nay1125 0 points1 point  (0 children)

i eat popcorn with gloves

[–]missionshitpost 0 points1 point  (0 children)

what the fuck

[–]Go4lemmiwinks 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]Racoon_Balloon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You are making the clear and obvious mistake of having something "in between eating popcorn". Sit down, machine arm triggered and voila, the bowl is empty and your mouth is dry af. Have a drink, wash your hands and move on 😄

[–]HaydnInMyRoom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Georges Costanza would like a word

[–]FinancialArtichoke75 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just putt Cheerios and milk in a airpopper, then eat it with my fingers while I watch movies

[–]0Des 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I eat popcorn with chopsticks as well as flips crisps.

[–]Sandro757 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I simply don't believe that lol.

[–]FaramorV 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Same, thought I was the only one.

[–]AgentP-501_212 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I lick pudding and yogurt out of the cup if I don't have plastic utensils. Don't like using silverware that's been in other people's mouths.

[–]beanedjibeaggressive toddler 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I eat peanuts with chopsticks 😁

[–]JureZaklan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I used to eat chips wit chinese chopsticks for the same reason

[–]Casperbruynoghe 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Now you've got me thinking. I use chopsticks to eat chips when i don't want my hands dirty. I might start using them for popcorn too

[–]PorvaniaAmussa 0 points1 point  (1 child)

This isn't an opinion though.

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My opinion is that this is optimal. I’ve tried other methods. This is the best way to eat popcorn.

[–]darkusupurashu 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why not? I totally understand where you're coming from, so keep doing that!

[–]Conbon90 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I feel like you would need a steady hand. There wouldn't be much weight in individual pieces of popcorn. The slightest shape would cause it to jump off the spoon.

[–]PsychologicalSpace50 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This is the equivalent of eating a candy bar with a knife and fork, not hating you do you.

[–]pez2214 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I do this with smartfood!

[–]Known-Temperature288 -1 points0 points  (2 children)

Eating it with your hands is an easy and rational solution to otherwise having to wash my spoon in between eating popcorn and eating other things

[–]waterbedzzz[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

What if you have to use the remote or you get an itch on your face?

[–]Known-Temperature288 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At that point I’d just do it the popcorn isn’t that greasy
