Over this past year, I think it’s safe to say we have spent more time in the kitchen than ever before, trying unordinary recipes we see online. We can thank TikTok for being responsible for turning our kitchens into a science lab. Since the app’s rise in popularity, food trends have been dominating TikTok. So let’s take a closer look at some of the major food trends that TikTok so graciously introduced us to.
Undeniably so, something about miniature shit is so appealing. These versions of cereal have taken users’ interest by storm as millions hopped on board to try this trend. Making it brings the same pleasure as Mini Brands except for this time you can actually eat them!
Ah, a classic! I mean how could we forget waking up at 3pm during quarantine only to get our main workout of the day—spending 30 minutes hand whipping instant coffee, sugar and hot water—to create the airy, delightful coffee creation only to bring back to your room and sip on while you watched more TikToks.
Cream Cheese & Bell Peppers
Logically this pairing sounds objectively simple in nature and appealing in taste. Although it received some controversy for trying to be a healthier bread substitute—with angered TikTokers yelling in the comments to “eat the damn bread”—people still found this new snack both innovative and delicious!
With its simple 3-ingredient recipe, cloud bread went viral almost instantly. It draws viewers in with its fluffy, springy texture that looked heavenly enough to make us forget all about the previously beloved banana bread.
Breakfast Sandwich Hack
Simple, effective, and delicious. Nevertheless, this hack helped everyone out during the peak of quarantine, especially when you couldn’t run down to your favorite local deli for a BEC.
Whipped Strawberry Milk
Dalgona coffee’s long distance cousin, whipped strawberry milk also caught much attention on the app. This whipped strawberry milk delivers the same airy texture but with a brighter color, sweeter taste and only two simple ingredients: whipping cream and Nesquik powder! Who knows what will be next on the whipping block? Perhaps your next lover.
“Sour Patch Kids” Grapes
When someone first claimed that pouring lime juice over grapes made them taste just like the candy, this one intrigued lovers on Sour Patch Kids!
White Claw Slushies
I think we can all admit our drinking habits got a little excessive when this recipe first went viral. Therefore, you were probably searching for ways to spice up your daily pack of claws consumption. When TikTok came to the rescue with a drink recipe, that made things exciting. All you have to do is grab from your stash of claws, add ice, fresh fruit, vodka, and your choice of juice or soda all into a blender and voila, you’ve seemingly escaped to a paradise vacation.
Baked Feta Pasta
I bet you’ve been waiting for this one because I’m sure by now your feed is drowning in it. A seemingly very simple dish, it’s a wonder why the idea is just coming to attention now. Many people have picked up the recipe and added their own spin and twist of ingredients. Let us know if you’ve tried it yourself!
TikTok’s ability to generate so much traction at such a fast pace is merely one of the reasons why the app is so revolutionary. Trends are being followed and shared at a speed like never before, reaching a global scale! And if you haven’t tried any of these TikTok food trends you should. Probably by the time you’re done reading this article, there will already be a new food trend to try!
