The "Girl Dinner" trend on TikTok, which has inspired users and racked up over 488.7 million views, has now made its way into Popeyes' new menu item.
The viral fad, #girldinner, features Gen Z women showcasing 'meals' made up of smaller portions on the popular social media platform. And it's not just the users who are hooked on this trend - even Popeyes has decided to give it a whirl.
The trend is manifested in various ways.
Some versions of "girl dinners" resemble charcuterie boards featuring bread, crackers, cheese, and cured meats, while others could be as simple as popcorn paired with wine or even a single jar of peanut butter.

Popeyes' take on the "Girl Dinner" trend consists of various side dishes from their menu, notably excluding any chicken.
Their interpretation of the "meal" comprises regular sides such as homestyle mac & cheese, Cajun fries, mashed potatoes with Cajun gravy, red beans & rice, coleslaw, and à la carte biscuits.
Although the viral "girl dinners" trend enjoys widespread popularity among fans, it has sparked some concerns among nutritionists and dietitians.
Some medical professionals have pointed out the insufficient nutritional value of these so-called "meals," as recently highlighted by Fox News Digital.
