Is she onto something big here?

It often seems like the Kardashian and Jenner families exist on a different plane of reality from mere mortals. But the truth is that when they aren’t trying to trademark the phrase “rise and shine,” they’re just like us. They love candy like M&Ms, especially after you put them in the microwave. Wait, what?

That’s exactly what Kim Kardashian’s Twitter followers learned over the weekend. The reality TV star and law school student responded to a photo of a jar of M&Ms with this bit of odd wisdom:

Apparently, shoving a bunch of M&Ms in the microwave for 30 seconds is Kim K’s perfect formula for making them “melted on the inside and crunch [sic] on the outside.” Herdecree has been retweeted more than 17,000 times since Kim shared it with her 62 million Twitter followers on Saturday night.

In case you were worried Kim was trolling us, she followed up her declaration with a video demonstrating what it looks like when you follow her “secret of life” to shove some M&Ms in the microwave. Surprisingly to a skeptic like me, following this candy life hack doesn’t result in the kind of gooey disaster one might expect.

And lest you question Kim Kardashian’s candy cred when it comes to M&Ms, it looks like she’s been a true fan for a while, or at least enough of one to have stopped by the M&M store in Times Square at some point.

Though her weighing in on candy concerns might seem out of character, it actually looks like the trio of Kardashian sisters is actually a fount of wisdom when it comes to snacking.

So no matter how you feel about Kim and her family’s role in popular culture, you have to admit that she has a lot to offer to M&Ms fans. I’m already bracing myself for the inevitable Kanye rant about how M&Ms are one of the greatest cultural advances in human history.
