People peeling raw eggs has become a viral trend on TikTok. Not sure why because it takes hours.
Social media users and professional content creators are testing their dexterity and patience by peeling raw eggs. Unlike its hard-boiled counterpart, this “egg peel challenge” requires fine tools and hours of labour to separate an eggshell from its membrane.
The painstaking process has been documented on popular video-sharing and Livestream websites, including TikTok, YouTube and Twitch.

Toothpicks, cuticle pushers, tweezers and metal blemish extractors are the common tools that are being used to separate the shell and fragile membrane.
Doctors and dentists have long practiced egg peeling as a way to develop their surgical skills, but in the last two years people who aren’t in the medical field have been testing it out for themselves. The trend appears to have reached mainstream appeal on TikTok – the app where food trends flourish.
