People's Minds Are Being Blown Away By How You're Meant To Split Open An English Muffin

The English muffin is a breakfast staple across the world, but you may not know that you’ve been splitting them wrong this entire time.

If you’ve ever used a knife, or fork, or torn them apart then odds are you’ve never seen this little trick that the muffins were designed for.

One TikTok user came across the revelation and decided to enlighten the rest of us.

Stephanie Reynolds showed the world that splitting an English muffin is as simple as rolling it in your hand along the perforated edges before the it comes right apart ‘complete with nooks and crannies’. 


Mind blown. 

She captioned the video: “Please please tell me I’m not the only one who didn’t know about this!”

Honestly, what kind of witchcraft is this and why didn’t we know this earlier.


One TikTok user was as astonished, commenting: “I’m English, I live in England, I’m 35, I have eaten a lot of English muffins, I did not know this…”

Another person had to see it to believe it, posting her reaction to the social media platform and exclaiming ‘all my life I had a knife’.

When that magical muffin splits in two with ease her reaction is pretty much in line with most of us who are just coming across this revelation. 


You can’t blame us either for not knowing this, I mean who researches how to split open an English muffin?

Some of the comments put it perfectly as well.

One TikTok user said: “They need to start putting directions on our food.”

While another said: “Why wasn’t this dang thing on the package or commercials.”


Honestly, it would’ve saved us so much time.

Another commented: “Damn TikTok teaches me more than school ever did.”

You would think this would’ve been the first lesson in food tech.

KD French’s ecstatic reaction was dueted by user Super Kame Guru who used his skills with piano to turn TikToks into wonderful hymns. 


And well, KD French’s lyrics sit perfectly atop his smooth, sensual keys. 

One TikTok user said: “I felt right in church with this one.”

Twitter users, however, thought they were better than everyone else when commenting about the newly found hack, as per usual.

One user said: “I’m usually wowed by videos like this but this one I’m more confused how anyone didn’t know this! 

“Like, you don’t even need to roll it in your hands, just open it at the perforations.

"How have y’all been eating English Muffins?”

Looks like we’ve got a genius over here.
