TikTok is a video-sharing platform where most people create, edit and share short videos from 15 seconds to 10 minute long videos. Over 1 billion monthly active users worldwide use TikTok everyday since it launched in 2016. Everyday it evolves with new trends being the fastest growing social media networks.

TikTok has a section called “For You” which is a feed that is personalized based on the things you engage with or just a variety of content. Here are a list of 10 things that are trending on TikTok this week based on my “For You” page: 

  1. This is what your favorite skin care brand says about you.
  2. 90s/2000s discontinued snacks.
  3. Mariah the Scientist “To Be Eaten Alive” tour.
  4. Ramadan 2024.
  5. Buldak Noodles.
  6. Smiling at your s/o weirdly.
  7. Reesa Teesa series “ Who **  Did I Marry”.
  8. Mcdonalds new sauce (Savory Chili).
  9. All American Series return (4/1)
  10. Bad Vs. Wild (Zeus Network)

A Closer Look at #5: Buldak Noodles

Spicy Buldak noodles are one of the most popular topics currently being discussed in the halls of Hayfield. 

“I saw this TikTok creator making them, she put cheese and butter and shrimp in it and it looked so good. She ended up eating them and didn’t like them,” junior Anzarius Roberts said. 

Some students wouldn’t even try them based on the recipes they’ve been seeing. 

“I don’t like the cheesy stuff. They look so spicy. An automatic stomach ache, I wouldn’t even try them,’’ senior Nia Williams said.

A few students decided to try the recipe at home. McKayla Dwyer wouldn’t recommend them to others. 

“The noodles smelled disgusting, and they tasted inedible and dangerous. I wouldn’t waste any money on them ever again,” Dwyer said.

Despite the mostly negative reactions, the noodles still made a tremendous impact on the TikTok communities and the users’ “FYP”.
