Sometimes, hunger cannot wait until lunch time !
Well, a 9-year-old girl from Missouri came up with a fix for that and decided to fill an empty lip balm tube with slices of sharp cheddar cheese.
On Tuesday night, the girl's mother, Valerie Schremp Hahn, a reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, posted a photo of her daughter's genius creation to Twitter, garnering praise for the fourth-grader who told BuzzFeed News she got the idea from YouTube.
"I just found that, cleaned it out with some soap, and started filling it with cheese," the fourth-grader said. She used sharp cheddar from Aldi's.
On Wednesday, she brought two what she is calling "cheese stick chapsticks" to school and took a few licks and bites during breaks between standardized tests.
"You can lick it and no one will know," she said.
Her friends got a kick out of it.
"At first I didn't tell them and I was like licking the, quote, 'cheese,' and then I told them it was cheese and they just started laughing so hard," the fourth-grader said.
People on Twitter loved it, too, with some calling Schremp Hahn's daughter a genius.
