The TikTok Butter Hack That'll Upgrade Movie Theater Popcorn
By Arianna Endicott
In her video, TikTok user AdventuresWithColleen inserts a plastic straw into the center of the popcorn bucket until it hits the bottom, then lines it up with the butter dispenser.
Then, she fills the straw with butter, moves it to release it into the bucket, and distributes it evenly throughout the entire bag.
One TikTok user commented that they use this trick, too, but they use three different straws spaced around the popcorn bucket to prevent too much seeping into the center.
Some commenters note that this method may not work for theaters that use thin paper bags for popcorn, as the butter may soak through the bottom.
