If you’ve ever wondered how to sneak a snack into your mid-morning meeting, a nine-year-old girl from Missouri has an answer. Mom, St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter Valerie Schremp Hahn, shared the idea on Twitter in which her daugther used an empty lip balm tube container to bring cheddar cheese into school.
Schremp Hahn posted a pic of the cheesy tube on Twitter, adding, “My 9-year-old daughter has taken an old lip balm tube and filled it with cheese so she can eat it in class.”
So how did the nine-year-old come up with such a creative idea? The fourth-grader told BuzzFeed, “I was just looking on YouTube because I was bored and I found this video and I decided to do it.” She added, “I just took some of my dad’s cheese, sliced it up, and put it in the chapstick container.”
After filling the emptied and cleaned tubes with sharp cheddar from Aldi, the nine-year-old brought the snack in to sneak as a mid-testing treat. She added, “You can lick it and no one will know.” Genius!
