What is the Popping Fruit Jelly TikTok Challenge?
Fruix Popping fruit Jellies have gone viral on the popular social media platform. Guess the challenge is to bite into the jelly-filled packet to see if it squirts all over. That’s the challenge on TikTok. Some of the videos are fun and crazy. Some I have seen squirt on the camera. There are hours of YouTube videos to keep you busy watching for months. I’m just happy the jelly-filled packets are not tide pods that were a trend a year or so ago.
TikTok challenge uses fruit flavors like apple, grape, strawberry, pineapple, and mango! and I know you are dying to ask, yes they are Gluten Free, Halal, Non-GMO. The packets are not what I expected. Plastic is quite hard to just bite into. Was told that plastic is not edible. I probably would be rushed to the hospital having my stomach pumped if it wasn’t for my co-workers.
I remembered in the 70s we had what they called wax pops. again like the Popping fruit Jellies, you would bite into the wax to get to the liquid center. Remember a chewing gum called, “freshen-Up?” a gum with a mint liquid center. Another fad that didn’t last too long as the gum flavor would fade pretty fast.
