The New "Shell On" Challenge Has People Eating Plastic Wrap and Fruit Peels

Well, this probably isn't as dangerous as the Tide Pod Challenge. But . . . it's still clearly in the Tide Pod Challenge's extended family tree.

Apparently the dumb new social media trend is the Shell On Challenge. That's when someone films themselves eating food with its "shell" on.

So that could mean eating an entire peanut, shell and all. But it also includes things like eating a banana or orange with the peel on . . . biting through plastic wrap to eat a sandwich . . . or eating the wrapper with a candy bar.

On the bright side, we couldn't find any evidence of anyone dying from this yet. But there's still time.
