The Viral Challenge That Has People Slapping Each Other With Food

A surging TikTok trend is giving new life to the term "food fight." Challenges like this one seem to be a dime a dozen on the popular short-form video app. Many of them begin with a catchy sound or choreographed dance moves, and all of them have a searchable hashtag that sums up what the challenge involves and disperses the video to different feeds, also known as "For You Pages."

If you've spent any time on the app, you probably know that TikTok food trends revolve around simple steps and delicious outcomes. Baked feta pasta, the folded tortilla hack, salmon rice, and pesto eggs are all examples of such trends, which millions of people have now tried at home, tasted, and posted to the app.

If you're gearing up to take on the latest challenge, you'll need nothing more than a couple of tortillas, some water, and a buddy that's equally committed to going viral on TikTok.

Tortilla Challenge results in comedic content

Tortillas make a perfect vessel for quesadillas, wraps, and a variety of other delicious meals. A new trend on TikTok, however, has established this ingredient as a comedic tool. For this challenge, users of the popular video app are slapping their friends in the face with tortillas, and it's definitely worth watching if you need a good laugh.

FoodBeast reports that challengers compete by filling their mouths with water and playing a round of Rock, Paper, Scissors. The winner gets to slap the other person in the face with a tortilla with the goal of causing them to spit out their water. The first person to spit loses.

Hundreds of videos of this challenge have circulated on the app, and the comment sections are full of laughing emojis and people excited to try the trend themselves. "I'm dying...this win's the internet today," said one commenter. On another video, someone wrote "THIS IS HYSTERICAL." Some of these TikToks have garnered more than one million views. On one post from a couple that seems to be a husband and wife squaring off in the Tortilla challenge, someone wrote, "She took out 25 years of anger in that one slap." Another video features a group of people trying to stay silent while they complete the challenge in the library. "I watch it 20x i laughed so much at the kills me," a viewer commented.

These videos beg the question, who would you slap with a tortilla for the sake of entertainment?
