I didn’t want to like TikTok food trends.
They seemed kind of silly. Stunty. Weird stuff for views.
I think the first recipe I remember seeing on TikTok was the pancake cereal. Remember that? The little mini pancakes people cooked up for…some reason? I didn’t get it. Why? Just make pancakes.
Now, to be clear, I am decidedly an Old, at least as far as TikTok is concerned. I lurk on it mostly for work. It’s an app largely dominated by creative young people and I am barreling toward 30. So, you know, of course I don’t get some stuff.
