When he reached the spot he wanted to seal, he folded the two corners over the package
When he reached the spot he wanted to seal, he folded the two corners over the pack so that they were now in front of him, effectively closing off any incoming airflow.
“ If you put those little flaps in and squeeze them, your chips won’t go undone, ” he said.
Many of his fans on the social media site said they would just solve the problem by ‘eating all the chips’ at once, but could see how this would be helpful if it wasn’t your chosen method.
“Mate, you live in 2040,” said one person, noting how advanced the skill was for the time.
“Oh no, I bought storage containers for my chips …” said another.
Paulio is not the only Australian who has shown off with a different trick TikTok user making her Smith’s Salt and Vinegar bag in a bowl.
April-Joy Goodlet, from Brisbane, Queensland, demonstrated the trick on camera so she could share it with her fans.
“As you can see, the fries are on top now, and it looks like a bowl, and you can eat all your fries without having to wash the dishes afterward,” she said.
“All you need is a packet of chips and not a bowl,” said the 26-year-old.
She started at the bottom of the pack and started to squeeze it up evenly.
‘Usually I like to do it in a circular motion so it’s nice and even,’ she said.
