How Dangerous Is The “Shell On” Challenge

By Richie on April 18, 2019

Well, this probably isn’t as dangerous as the Tide Pod Challenge.  But it’s still clearly in the Tide Pod Challenge’s extended family tree.

Apparently the dumb new social media trend is the Shell On Challenge.  That’s when someone films themselves eating food with its “shell” on.

So that could mean eating an entire peanut, shell and all.  But it also includes things like eating a banana or orange with the peel on . . . biting through plastic wrap to eat a sandwich . . . or eating the wrapper with a candy bar.

On the bright side, we couldn’t find any evidence of anyone dying from this yet.  But there’s still time.
