Elementary School Teacher Wows TikTok With Trick For Splitting An Apple In Half Without A Knife

Food hacks on TikTok are just one of the vast areas of content available on the revolutionary social media app.

But they are just as fascinating as anything else and helpful.

One such food hack—for how to split an apple in half using only your hands—is making the rounds on the app as it wows onlookers. @subienewbie, the teacher who posted the video, did not explain how at first.

He simply did it as people's jaws hit the floor.

I show this “trick” to my students every year. It’s always fun seeing their reactions and when they finally figure it out for themselves! #teacherlife

@subienewbie

You can’t make this stuff up 😂 #teacherlife #elementryschool #thingskidssay

In the foreground, he tells a story about a second grader who had an accident in class.

However, that story was swiftly backgrounded by the people watching the video who simply needed to know how this apple trick happened.

Due to the overwhelming amount of attention the apple got, @subienewbie shortly followed up with a video showing exactly how, from his point of view, he executes the trick.

Reply to @ekrmm077 POV no problem! Hope this helps. The honeycrisp was a little tricky, but worth 😋 #teacherlife

The apple trick relies on exerting pressure and changing where the pressure is at all times until, eventually, the apple just splits. Most of the work lies in the palms and thumbs.

@subienewbie is not the first person to use this apple trick, but now a whole new audience has gained a whole new skill.

Another challenge he raises as he's working with the apple is that every apple is different. Waxy apples, for example, can make your hand slip.

In his case, it was the honeycrisp apple that actually gave him quite a challenge for finding the perfect spot to work it into two halves.
