She then pushed the ends of the packet towards each other to make a pouch that she could easily dip her fries into. 

Kuiper said she taught her daughter, Morgan, the trick years ago when she would take her through the drive-thru for food. 

Thousands of people commented on the video, many of whom called the hack ‘brilliant’ and ‘smart.’ 

‘This video changed my whole life,’ one person wrote, while another joked: ‘TikTok really is just a list of things I’ve been doing incorrectly my entire life.’

Other TikTokers who live outside of the US were admittedly confused, saying their to-go ketchup comes in pots.

‘What is wrong with the US???’ one person asked. ‘UK McDonald’s have sauces in plastic pots.’ 

The video was posted over the summer, and fans still can’t get enough. 

Kuiper spoke to Good Morning America about the hack this week, explaining that she and her friend came up with the idea in high school while trying to figure out how they could drive and dip her fries at the same time.  

The mom said the technique has become somewhat of a family tradition.  

‘My husband Eric and I always opened the ketchup packets on the way home from McDonald’s so that our kiddo could have nice hot salty fries dipped in ketchup, and now she’s 22 and still opens ketchup that way,’ Kuiper said. 

‘It always seems that the most simple things blow up on social media. I create all the amazing recipes, but the ketchup packet was the one that’s exploded.’
