People shocked to learn they have been spreading butter wrong their whole life
While on holiday or even eating out on the weekend with friends, having breakfast or brunch is one of the most popular activities for many of us. Although there are many delectable items to choose from, good bread and butter remains one of the most essential parts of breakfast for many.
Butter served by hotels and restaurants usually come in single-serve packaging. While most of us might be unwrapping the whole packet to get to our butter, a video on the Internet has gone completely viral for showing people that we might have been using single-serve butter cube wrong our whole life.

Reel shows people the actual way to butter bread
A reel with a butter hack shared by Instagram creator @the_yukistar has now been viewed over 2 million times, as people are shocked by how she manages to spread her butter on bread.
The reel shows the creator pick up a cube of butter served in a restaurant. Instead of opening up the foil cover of the butter from the edges as one usually does, she proceeds to pierce the pack of butter in the middle, with her fork.
Then she holds the butter on the sides and squeezes such that the pressure falls on the perforations she made on the packet with her fork. The result is that the butter comes out of the pack in thin strings looking almost like spaghetti or string cheese, while falling easily over the bread.

That only works if they don’t bring one that’s still frozen solid yet
One person joked,
Butter Spaghetti. I would directly squeeze that in my mouth
Another excited comment read,
