    Why You Should Avoid Frozen Honey, “Clean Penis” Avocado, And More From Medical TikTok

    “I actually saw such a disturbing video of this girl not only doing that with honey, but doing it with mustard and Sriracha and all of these like, disgusting things.”

    So let's dive right into it! Recently we talked to Daniella Emanuel about how avocados that taste like "clean penis," foot fetishes, and frozen honey have taken over TikTok. Here's some of what we learned:

    BuzzFeed Daily: It seems like [avocado tasting like "clean penis"] is all some twisted modern version of an old wives tale. But to be clear, short of hearing this on social, is there any evidence that this is actually true?

    Told my future mother in law that avocado taste like clean penis and she said… avocockdo I love her 🤣💗

    Daniella Emanuel: You know, I think that's actually up to sort of personal subjective thinking. I will say I had a friend who has a boyfriend, so she's sexually active. And I told her about this and she was like, "I'm going to go grab an avocado right now." She grabbed one. She took a bite and she just texted me: "Yup." That was that.

    Let's get into sort of the psychological aspect [of foot fetishes]. While the mapping in our brains makes sense, we obviously don't all end up with a foot fetish. So what's the theory on why some brains might latch onto this and others not so much?

    BuzzFeed Daily: So, moving on to something very different. People are basically obsessed with freezing honey bottles and squeezing out the honey to eat it like a popsicle. What is the story about how and why it is going viral right now?

    **DE: **Oh, my goodness. I actually saw such a disturbing video of this girl not only doing that with honey, but doing it with mustard and Sriracha and all of these like, disgusting things. It was just the most horrifying thing to watch. I think she was trying to piss people off. But essentially this all started with this one user, Dave Ramirez, on TikTok, who froze honey and squeezed it out of the bottle and took a bite. And he was like, "Oh, that was refreshing." And then from there, people, I guess, just went with it and they started doing it themselves. And...some people hate it, but some people say, "Oh, it's so cool and refreshing and I love the taste and the texture." So, yeah, for some reason, that's just become an enormous trend on TikTok.

    Let’s have a moment of silence for Disney’s FastPass.

    @DisneyParks @WaltDisneyWorld @Disneyland We already pay enough to be there, now pay more to actually ride the rides you want? 😞 I love Disney, but this seems like it’s all about $. The average family can not afford to go to Disney and stay at a Disney resort. Pretty sure this is not how Walt wanted it.

    For the uninitiated, FastPass was a free service that allowed Disney World and Disneyland guests to check out other attractions while waiting to go on a busier ride or attend a show. Disney recently replaced FastPasses, which had been paused during the pandemic, with Lightning Lane — which is only accessible via Disney’s new $15-$20 Genie service — and a lot of park enthusiasts are not happy.

    We also discussed how Kanye West brought his feud with Drake to a whole new level Monday morning, when he posted a Google Maps screenshot with Drake's home address on Instagram.
