TikTok isn’t all senseless.

Worried about the coronavirus torpedoing your taste and smell? Not to worry, some enterprising Wisconsin TikTok users have apparently devised a unique way to help sufferers regain their senses post-infection — using burnt orange and brown sugar.

“We currently don’t have taste and smell,” explains alleged COVID-19 sufferer Katie Kotlowski in a clip that has almost 390,000 views.

In an attempt to cure their symptoms, the college student and her roommate can be seen using a lighter to flambé the outside of an orange until black, like a burnt marshmallow. They then proceed to peel the fruit, pan-cook the insides and pair the pulp with brown sugar before eating the cooked orange pulp.

The clip concludes with Kotlowski popping a strawberry in her mouth and gasping in surprise, indicating that the unorthodox remedy worked.

Needless to say, TikTok was skeptical of their supposed olfactory facilitator.

“Your are lying,” scoffed one commenter.
