It seems like McClatchy has requested a comment from TikTok on this but they didn’t respond immediately, some of the users using the app stated they were not feeling well after consuming so much honey. one of the concerns is that people are consuming too much of the sticky substance, eating like this from the bottle can lead to bloating, diarrhea, and cramps which have been started by Shape Magazine.
Another concern is about one-third person are fructose intolerant which means they are capable of consuming this much sugar at once and this is going to cause them pain and diarrhea stated by NBC news and it is also being stated as the honey thickens, it can be dangerous to consume.
