Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

TikTok is constantly coming up with food ideas that are incredibly polarizing. We end up seeing these things and we end up wondering what the heck is wrong with the people who came up with it. To be fair, there are other food ideas that we love to see. However, it is the insane ones that end up sticking out in our memory for the most part.

Fair or unfair, that’s just how life works. “Onion chips” are here, and to be frank, we are rather appalled. We cannot believe that people are eating this. We refuse to buy-in.

It has to be an ongoing prank of some kind because no one would eat these willingly, would they? We could describe the snack to our readers but they would probably think its a joke, too.

These folks are actually taking the time to dip raw onions in marinara sauce. It’s a sentence that we cannot believe that we had to type. The flavor combo is something that people are swearing by, as it’s the classic “don’t knock it until you have tried it” dish. Some love it and others are referring to it as a snack that is chock full of heartburn.

TikToker Bethany Ugarte (@lilsipper_official) is the one who is responsible for the trend, near as we can tell. If you have any thoughts, questions, complaints, or concerns, you need to be directing them at her. “Don’t knock it ’til you try it,” she even says in the video, in case you thought we were making it up.

We are trying our best not to trigger our acid reflux just by watching this. While the hack is insane on paper, the people who are eating it must have stomachs that are made out of cast iron.

We are definitely a bit too old to be taking these kinds of chances with our digestive systems. Sorry, not sorry!

The video has received millions of views and the comments are absolutely hilarious. That’s half of the fun of being on TikTok these days. The comment section will have us yelling with laughter every time. Check out the snack hack below:
