The enticing aroma of spicy rice cakes wafting down the street. The stark contrast of the chilly winter air.

TikTok has quickly come to dominate popular culture. From the music played on the radio stations to the newest Dunkin’ menu items (anyone who has tried “The Charli,” please let me know how it is), the app is inescapable — and Rice is no exception.
