You’re Supposed to Cut an English Muffin with a Fork???

Here’s the newest thing we’ve been doing wrong our whole life:  You’re not supposed to use a knife to cut an English muffin in half.  You should be using a FORK!!

@sidneyraz on TikTok found out about it, and now a video he posted is blowing up!

You shouldn’t use a knife because it cuts the nooks and crannies wrong, and can RUIN your entire English muffin-eating experience.  It’s better to use a fork, or just pull the sides apart with your hands.

This isn’t secret information, by the way.  The Thomas’ English Muffin website clearly says “do not use a knife” in its FAQ section.  And they even put it on their packaging.  Which just goes to show, no one EVER reads the instructions anymore.
