Stop eating toothpicks! The latest trend sweeping TikTok shows people using a really dopey method for getting more fiber in their diets – by eating deep-fried toothpicks. South Korean health officials issued a warning after videos of the practice started blowing up on social media. The clips show TikTokers tossing the sticks into a hot frying pan, where they puff up like curly fries that are seasoned before the crunching starts. By the way, toothpicks in South Korea aren't solid wood: They also contain corn and potato starch to make them more environmentally friendly.
