Food hacks are one of the most popular videos on TikTok. Most of these videos consist of advice on how to get groceries at a cheaper price. In a viral TikTok video, a woman shares a Whataburger chicken salad hack for her Texas followers.
The video was uploaded by user @cosemetic_talks. She mostly posts makeup content and the occasional food hack. This TikTok is a food hack on how to get a $3 chicken salad from Whataburger. The video only shows @cosemtic_talks sitting in her car. “If you’re from Texas and you love Whataburger and you’re on a diet, definitely order a grilled chicken patty with lettuce and tomato on the side,” the content creator tells her 31,000 followers. She recommends ordering this because it’s $3, rather than ordering a boneless burger because it’s “$6.7.”
The video was viewed over 407,000 times as of Thursday, with many viewers praising @cosemtic_talks for the trick.
“I love that!!!!! Thanks for sharing,” praised one viewer.
“What??? I’m definitely going to!!” a second wrote.
“I started doing the no bun thing at Whataburger… because I’m trying to cut away bread aaaand it’s life changing too, thanks for the tip,” praised a third.
Even an apparent Whataburger employee agreed with this tip, writing: “Whataburger employees, and I agree with this message, just order the patty yourself. Lettuce & tomato are free!”
However, there were people who were less enthusiastic and criticized the hack.
“This is Whataburger’s saddest meal,” said one person.
“In Texas nobody is on a diet, we have food,” criticized a second.
“The purpose of going to Whataburger is to break the diet,” said a third.
There were some who tried this hack and it didn’t work.
“I did it and they say they don’t do it. that I have to buy the burger without the bun,” one commented.
“It only worked for me once. Then the manager understood and charged me for the whole meal,” shared a second.
“Girls, they charged me almost $6 for last time. I was so tempted to just get a friggin’ meal,” complained a third.
@cosemtic_talks explained how to use this hack in the comments, writing, “You must ask for a grilled chicken patty with a side of lettuce and tomato. Don’t ask for a burger without a bun.”
