People Can't Stop Talking About The Contents Of This Fridge In Viral TikTok

Some people like their candy the way skiers like their snow: cold and in large quantities. TikToker @krystleklear1 has taken stocking up on sweets — and home organization — to a new level with a video that's been viewed almost 100 million times on the social media platform. The TikTok shows @krystleklear1 filling a special middle drawer in her refrigerator with a sugar cornucopia: cans of Coke, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Tootsie Rolls, Skittles, York Peppermint Patties, pudding, candy bars, and more. It would be enough to feed a whole neighborhood full of children on Halloween, but it appears as if all this sweetness is intended for @krystleklear1 and her family. There's a punchline at the end of the video, when the TikToker pushes a clear glass mug into the fridge's water and ice dispenser, and the cup fills with M&Ms.

The video was so impressive, it elicited more than 150,000 comments. A few commenters doubted whether even a candy supply that huge would be enough in their household. "That drawer would be empty in less than a week and I would be sick the whole time and still wouldn't learn," one commenter said.

The comments swung from highly approving — "I'M MOVING IN!!!" — to oddly judgmental of a total stranger: "This is what's in your refrigerator? Do you have a veggies and fruit section?"

Candy drawers are a popular TikTok ASMR and organizing trend

The fridge-full-of-candy video posted by @krystleklear1 and liked more than 10 million times is the biggest example of a little corner of TikTok you can find under the hashtag #candydrawer. File these videos under "ASMR," or "autonomous sensory meridian response," which is a popular genre on YouTube and TikTok that incorporates sounds meant to give you a satisfying tingling sensation (via Think with Google). You can also file #candydrawer videos under another popular category: organizing. The TikTok account @aesthetic_vids.8888 attracted more than 320,000 views with its first-ever video a month ago. The video simply shows the TikToker filling plastic organizers with lollipops, Rice Krispies Treats, Jolly Ranchers, and other sweets, and placing them in a drawer.

You can count TikToker @bestfriendsforfrosting among the early adopters of the #candydrawer trend. They honored Valentine's Day 2020 by loading a kitchen drawer with Sweethearts and red, pink, and white versions of Starburst and other candies. TikTok commenters really do like to worry themselves over other people's business, though. The most common comment under @bestfriendsforfrosting's post was some version of "but you'll get ants!" Not if the kids find that drawer first.
