With that said, here are 10 of the trendiest food videos on TikTok in Canada and around the world this year, according to the platform.

From coffee to candy, Dalgona has surely taken the world by storm. In fact, a restaurant in Vancouver had guests play the game where you cut shapes out of a circular Dalgona candy with a needle on Halloween.
