TikTok users have been sharing tips and tricks for all sorts of things of late, from how to find bargains in your favourite shops to how to get free food at popular restaurants.
One user, named Kyle, recently claimed they’d come up with a hack for getting a free hot chocolate at McDonald’s and it’s very simple to do.
However, his advice proved pretty controversial, with some people branding his method “gross”.
Kyle, who lives in New York, first shared his video a year ago and it proved so popular he has since reposted it to share with more viewers.
In the clip, he explains that all you have to do to get the ‘free drink’ at McDonald’s is to ask for a cup of hot water with your meal.
As well as the hot water, you also have to request a sachet or two of chocolate sauce.
You then mix the sauce into the hot water, which melts it and there you have it.
In the comments Kyle claims that his trick “worked so well” and “tasted so good”, but not everyone was convinced.
One person was not happy about him using hot water instead of milk, they said: “Hot chocolate with a base of water is my issue.”
“This feels illegal,” wrote a second.
A third commented: “People who make hot chocolate with water are not making it to heaven.”
Someone else branded it “gross” while another just proclaimed “ew”.
“I’m sorry but this ain’t it,” added a sixth.
However, not everyone was unimpressed.
A different user posted: “Bro y’all out here complaining about FREE hot chocolate.”
While another responded: “Wait y’all are telling me you guys never made hot chocolate with a water base? It’s actually pretty good.”
