TikTok has been the advice giver, trendsetter and entertainer of the past year.
Now the popular app plays a major role in mealtimes we can’t help but try some of the brilliant (but equally bizarre) food trends.
Food experts at the online cake shop, Jake and Beyond revealed what food trends came out on top. And the results are interesting, to say the least!
First Place: Cloud Bread
Let’s remember back to the very start of lockdown. Everyone was overly enthusiastic about the skills they would learn while staying at home. Well, it looks like we all turned to TikTok to learn. The biggest food trend goes to cloud bread, with 3.2 billion views. It looks like we didn’t want to settle for normal bread. Of course, we wanted the fluffier almost Disney-like alternative!

Second Place: Whipped Coffee
Every coffee lover’s dream. This famous drink only uses three ingredients and has been compared to drinking a ‘coffee cloud.’ With nearly 3 billion views, it seems many people were trying out this caffeine delight at home. Anything to change up the lunchtime routine, right?

Third Place: Pancake Cereal
Lots of tiny bite-sized pancakes, what’s not to love? The #pancakecereal has over 1.6 billion views on TikTok. The mini sweet treats have endless possibilities with toppings like golden syrup, Nutella, or yogurt.

Fourth Place: Feta Pasta
We’ve all seen it, and most of us have tried it: The feta pasta takes fourth place. A simple hack that involves baking a block of feta cheese with some cherry tomatoes in the oven. The trend has over 1 billion views on TikTok and has been described as ‘the perfect weeknight pasta dish.’ We couldn’t agree more.

Other food trends that made the list include hot cocoa bombs, ice cream cake and, of course, banana bread.
At the other end of the table is the newest craze, pesto eggs with 44 million views. It seems this trend will continue to grow and soon we’ll all be adding pesto to our eggs in the morning, yum!?
