Well, that was certainly more than we bargained for...
One TikToker is going viral on the social media platform after revealing to followers the grave mistake she made while munching on a sleeve of crackers.
TikTok user @brennaj77, also known by her name Brenna, was tucking into a sleeve of crackers that she thought were covered in seeds...
i think it’s about time for new prescription glasses…. #fyp #AFairShotWithBlock #ant
...only to come to the shocking realization what she thought were seeds were actually ants.
The 12-second video has raked in an astonishing 19.6 million views, received 2.6 million likes, and garnered a reaction from over 44,000 people in the comment section.
Many comments were filled with shock and disgust as viewers realized Brenna was, in fact, snacking on little critters.
The video began with the camera on Brenna who looked visibly distressed and near tears.
Viewers soon got an explanation for this seemingly visceral reaction when Brenna flips the camera around to show viewers the sleeve of crackers she had been eating. Ignorant to its unwanted ingredients, Brenna had consumed two before realizing the black spots on the crackers she originally identified as seeds were actually ants.
Text overlayed in the video read:
"i thought they were seeds...i've already eaten two."
The caption to the video also read:
"i think it’s about time for new prescription glasses…."
Brenna's prescription lenses may not be doing as good a job of aiding her vision as previously thought.
In a follow-up video, Brenna recounted the experience to her captivated audience, sharing she first noticed the unwelcome insects in the crackers "when the flavor started tasting like pennies."
Brenna went into further detail, relaying the taste of the ants was not dissimilar to "chewing on coins."
