Top 15 TikTok Food Trends That Are Both Delicious And Gross

By Editorial Staff

No matter what side of TikTok you are on, odds are that food videos show up on your For You Page regardless. While many of them seem incredible, a few trends become popular that are quite controversial. Below, find a list of both the best and worse (we know these are up for debate) TikTok food trends!

Delicious Food Trends

1. Birria Tacos

  • #birriatacos

I know I’m not the only one who has been craving these tacos😍 #birria #birriatacos #tacos #mexicanfood #consome #cooking #tiktokfoods #tiktokcooks

♬ Mexican Fiesta – World Cruiser

This taco trend took TikTok by storm with these juicy tacos that are dipped into a sauce that seems out of this world. These extremely popular tacos were all the rage (and still are) by influencers and users around the world. 

2. GiGi Hadid’s Vodka Pasta

This classic Italian dish rebranded as “Gigi Hadid’s Vodka Pasta” made it to food TikTok overnight with videos of this creamy dish mixed with garlic, onions, tomato paste, and the most important ingredient: vodka. What made this dish so popular is the simplicity yet elegance that this pasta can bring to anyone who eats it.

One of America’s favorite fast-food restaurants just got even better. To do this trend, order french fries, chicken nuggets (mac and cheese if you’re feeling it), and shake it up in a bowl with buffalo sauce. How could you go wrong this? 

5. Mini Pancake Cereal

How to make Strawberry Pancake Cereal #pancakecereal #alwayslearning #recipes

♬ Roses – Imanbek Remix – SAINt JHN

We have seen nature cereal and now it’s time to talk about pancake cereal. Instead of making full-sized pancakes for breakfast you instead make mini pancakes, crisp them up, and add them to a bowl of milk topped with syrup and fruit of your choice. This sweet dish is awesome and is one of the best breakfast TikTok food trends. 

6. Feta Pasta

  • #fetapasta
  • 797.2 million views

Baked feta pasta with cherry tomatoes!! Recipe on blog • Inspired by @grilledcheesesocial 😘 #tiktokpartner #LearnOnTikTok #fetapasta #recipes

♬ original sound – Feel Good Foodie

This incredible recipe that swept the country caused numerous grocery stores to sell out of cherry tomatoes and blocks of feta cheese. In a dish, combine cherry tomatoes, a block of feta cheese, garlic, and olive oil, and top with fresh basil to create a pasta dish unlike any other.

7. Whipped Coffee

  • #whippedcoffee
  • 2.3 billion views

its basically the same but its nice to not have to make it every morning #fyp #whippedcoffee #familytime #healthheroes #MakeBakeShake

♬ original sound – Melanie Locke

One of the biggest TikTok food trends occurred during the peak of quarantine where you whip together instant coffee, sugar, and water to create a whipped version of coffee that you can pour over milk. This trend was a staple in the TikTok world and is making a comeback with the one year anniversary of the United States shutdown.

  • 470 million views

ok but these baked oats taste just like cake🤯recipes will be up on my instagram @tazxbakes #bakedoats #recipe #fyp

♬ original sound – Alec Townsend

This “breakfast dessert” is a healthy alternative to many sweet treats that people typically enjoy for breakfast. While overnight oats are still a popular craze, these baked oat treats have taken much of the TikTok community by storm.

9. Tortilla Hack

  • #tortillatrend
  • 4.3 billion views

Tortilla hack cheeseburger edition. #tortillatrend #tiktoktrend #trending #cheeseburger #tiktokfood #foryou #fyp

♬ Baby Work It – Your Favourite Garçon

One of the most popular TikTok food trends is the tortilla hack that involves cutting your tortilla down one side, and adding ingredients to 4 sides and folding it up. TikTok creators have started this trend by putting ingredients to make pizza tortillas, cheeseburger tortillas, and much more!

10. One-Pan Breakfast Sandwich

  • #eggsandwich
  • 94.5 million views



This incredible hack makes breakfast easy using only one pan; especially great for when you’re in a rush. Click the link above to learn how to make an easy egg sandwich that works, and also requires little clean-up.

Gross Food Trends

1. Cream Cheese & Bell Peppers

  • #bellpeppercreamcheese
  • 134.1 million views

Snackin! #mukbang #bellpeppercreamcheese #keto #mukbangeatingshow

♬ original sound – JanelleRohner

Starting with popular keto influencer Janelle, this concoction of bell peppers, cream cheese, and everything but the bagel seasoning has the app divided over whether or not this trend is “bussin”. Let us know what you think about this TikTok food trend!

2. Smoked Watermelon

  • #watermelon
  • 3.5 billion views

Smoked Watermelon Ham 🤯🤯🤯 #veganrecipes #vegan #watermelon

♬ FEEL THE GROOVE – Queens Road, Fabian Graetz

At NeoReach, we are not too sure what to think of this (and sorry to those who like it). This vegan attempt at making a ham using a watermelon is one of the strangest attempts at “veganising” a food that TikTok has seen. This is going to be a no from us…

3. Nature Cereal

  • #naturescereal
  • 498.7 million views

🫐🍓🥥 it’s actually really good y’all @natures_food

♬ Romantic Piano – Piano

This new breakfast trend takes an interesting twist on cereal using fruit, coconut water, and ice cubes. While many people do enjoy this TikTok food trend, we are not too sure what makes this cereal special. But who are we to argue with Lizzo?

4. Oreo Mug Cake

  • #oreomugcake
  • 73 million views

Testing Out Oreo & Milk Mug Cake (IG: @eitan) #food #cooking #mugcake #oreoandmilk #oreomugcake #chef #easyrecipe #eats #oreos #recipe #foodporn #yum

♬ original sound – Eitan Bernath

Although this looks like it would be decent, mixing Oreos and milk and then putting it in the microwave does not count as dessert. Dipping Oreos in milk is great, but this combo is not it.

5. Chipotle’s Dragon Sauce

  • #dragonsauce
  • 3.1 million views

Reply to @charlieprobbins What’s next! Top comment wins! #dragonsauce #chipotlesecrets #secret #topcomment

♬ original sound – Jack Early

Chipotle is already incredible. So why mix two ingredients that should not go together in the first place. This brand new trend is something that should not continue on.
