TikTok's 'girl dinner' filter

You are probably familiar with the mega viral ‘girl dinner’ trend, but did you know that there is a TikTok filter inspired by it? Here’s how you can get it.

TikTok‘s huge range of filters and effects often evolve into viral trends that take over the video platform and get thousands of people to participate.

One of the latest effect to blow up on the app is the ‘girl dinner’ filter, inspired by the ‘Girl Dinner’ fad that sees people whip up a meal with whatever available ingredients, often including leftovers.

This filter presents users with three purple circles at the top of their video, which then flip over to reveal three random ingredients for your “girl dinner.” While some options might sound conventional, like cold pizza or pasta salad, others take a wild turn, throwing in unexpected items like birth control or dog food.

The element of surprise and the inevitable creativity it sparks has made this filter pop off on TikTok. This has led to numerous hilarious and sometimes even gourmet outcomes. Here’s how you can try it out.
