The girl dinner trend is TikTok’s new food fad for women, and it is both hilarious and relatable. Read more to learn all about it.
Women love their meals, and that’s why we can always find them scouring the internet for new recipes and places to eat. But ‘food’ is not the same for everyone, just as you are about to discover.
The girl dinner trend is a new fad where women share their dinner ideas — both orthodox and peculiar — over a sound created originally by @karmapilled on TikTok. The sound has been used over 240 million times and contains a catchy jingle.
The origins and meaning of the girl dinner trend
The girl dinner trend officially started when TikTok user @karmapilled posted a video where she introduced her girl dinner, and it turned out to be a half-eaten chocolate bar. Netizens couldn’t stop laughing and relating to the unexpectedly small dinner that she presented.
Here is the original video with over 2.1 million likes on TikTok.
Most girl dinner trend videos are reminiscent of trends like GRWM because they contain frame-by-frame tutorials on food preparation. Since its inception, the trend has included more traditionally acceptable meals.
The woman in the video above flaunts her ‘normal’ pasta and olive oil dinner with mozzarella and some seasoning. However, this TikTok trend is no stranger to variation.
This trend has taken different forms with each new video. Some videos are questionable, like this high-sugar chocolate-filled girl dinner.
Other girl dinner videos are surreal because there’s no way they could be real. Check out this video of a ‘girl dinner’ made entirely of ice cubes.
Do you see what we mean?
However, some videos are just created from a comedic standpoint, not to be taken too seriously. We can’t stop laughing at this video of a woman claiming a can of Red Bull as her girl dinner (we hope it’s a comedy, though).
The girl dinner trend is a quirky celebration of the diversity of the feminine experience through food. It is also a great way for women to showcase their creativity while sparking meaningful conversations. Would you participate in this trend? If so, what food would you use?
