Woman sparks chaos on TikTok after sharing the ‘real way’ to eat a chicken wing

A TikTok user is going viral after sharing her method for how to eat a chicken wing.

The life hack, which is allegedly the “real way” to properly eat a chicken wing, comes courtesy of a user named @NoHankyPanky. Her simple yet bizarre method has TikTok users debating whether it’s “life-changing” or disgusting.

It’s just the latest in a long line of life advice on the app — plenty of which supposedly shows how we’ve all been doing something totally wrong. For example, users have also revealed the “real way” to use an airplane pillow, make popcorn and even hang items from a wall.

As @NoHankyPanky shares in her video, the wing-eating tip was not her idea.

“I didn’t come up with that. I’m not that smart,” she says in the clip.

From there, she proceeds to show off her method, which involves biting off the end of the wing to free up the bones.

After removing one end of the wing, @NoHankyPanky grabs hold of the smaller bone inside the flat-style wing. She then twists it and pulls it free.

“It should just slide right out,” she says.

From there, she has a full hunk of chicken meat on a single bone. So, she eats the entire thing in one bite — revealing a perfectly clean bone at the end.

Many TikTok users were stunned by the life hack.

“Wait, this is a game changer,” one user wrote.

“This is absolutely the correct way,” another added.

“This is wonderful,” another wrote. “It’s a crime how much chicken is left on the bone sometimes.”

Other users were less impressed. Some said it was too much work, while others were grossed out by the step of biting off the end of the bone.

“That doesn’t seem fun,” one user wrote.

“I can’t do the muscle, cartilage or veins. It’s a no from me,” another added.
