There's a secret way to open a can of Coke and it's blowing people's minds | The Sun

EVERYONE'S got their favourite style of coke – diet, zero, full-fat or flavoured.

But they might not realise there's a secret – and arguably easier – way of cracking open a can of the fizzy stuff.

Anyone with long nails or nimble fingers knows the struggle of trying to get a grip under the metal ring.

Luckily, one mum's fizzy can hack means it might be easier for you to crack one open.

TikTok user, Alexis O'Neal, shared her secret method in a video.

“Did you know?” she asked viewers while demonstrating how she does it.

Instead of opening the can the way many people would and squeezing her finger under the metal pull tab, she turned the tab around and opened it the opposite way.

This creates an opening in the middle of the can that is slightly smaller than the ordinary opening, but is the perfect size for a straw.

Alexis then put a straw in the opening and divulged that it's how she likes to drink her Coke.
