TikTok food trend: Would you try watermelon with some mustard?
Watermelon and mustard are the stars of a new food combo that’s been making the rounds on social media.
A TikTok user who goes by the username @yayayayummy swore that this bizarre combination tastes surprisingly good. The clip has reached almost two million views as of this writing.
Even hit singer Lizzo has jumped on the bandwagon. Seemingly confused but not entirely disgusted, she said, “I don’t understand.” She then proceeded to try it a couple more times.

The food trend has generated mixed reactions online. Fitness entrepreneur Cassey Ho, for one, said she “actually really liked it.” Likewise, the associate editor of a well-known food website Delish.com agreed with the initial poster’s claim. Her verdict: “It tasted really good in the weirdest of ways,” she wrote in an article. “The vinegar from the mustard mixed with the sweet, juicy watermelon counterbalanced each other which I wasn’t expecting.”
Some netizens, meanwhile, argued that the strange pairing tastes nasty. “Bruh I tried it and I almost threw up,” an online user wrote in the comments. Another one wrote that it “wasn’t remotely good.”
Most Internet users remained curious but stressed they would never try it for themselves. How about you? Would you dare?
