What Would You Do? See how restaurant goers react when two teen boys plan to put peanuts in the milkshake of their friend with a peanut allergy as a prank.
Peanuts can be as deadly as bullets to kids with allergies. Practical jokes and pranks involving peanuts aren’t a laughing matter, but they are something that can cause many American families to live in fear. ‘What Would You Do?’ decided to tackle this very scary and real topic.
Some children live with such severe allergies that exposure to just a dusting can be life-threatening. Many adults realize this, so when patrons at a restaurant noticed two teens planning to put peanuts in their allergic friend’s milkshake, things got heated quickly.
6 Million American Children Have Food Allergies
Almost 6 million American children have food allergies. As a mother of a child with a peanut allergy, I know the terror that surrounds my daughter just being exposed to a mere morsel of a peanut.
We carry epi-pens and Benadryl with us at all times for this very reason. To think that someone would intentionally spike someone’s food with peanuts as a prank is beyond mean. It is downright criminal.
In third grade a boy in my grade smeared peanut butter on my chair. Stop this now. It’s not funny to eat peanut products on the “free” table. It kills. It hurts. It stresses.

Three teen boys are having dessert at a restaurant. One has peanuts for his sundae. Another boy reminds them of his severe peanut allergy.

Thankfully these were just actors, but this does happen and it’s not funny. As cruel as the scenario is, this “What Would You Do?” episode is heartwarming because anyone with in earshot gave these boys a piece of their mind.
