International Business Times

Dunkin' is gunning for a younger demographic with its latest menu offering, but the coffee chain might be a little too late to the party. Dunkin' announced on Wednesday that it was adding Avocado Toast to its menu this spring – a breakfast and brunch option that started trending several years ago. According to The Washington Post, New York's Café Gitane has had avocado toast, which features red pepper flakes, on its menu since 2006 and is recognized as one of the originators of the breakfast item. A few years later, in 2013, the avocado toast revolution really picked up when actress Gwyneth Paltrow published her recipe for the concoction in her cookbook "It's All Good," causing an internet obsession, the Post said. Business Insider reported that searches for avocado toast ramped up in 2016 and said it was named the top breakfast trend in 2017 by health-tracking app MyFitnessPal.

The influencer-to-reality-star pipeline is real, and now it's claimed its latest victims: TikTok stars Charli and Dixie D'Amelio. The sisters have made the jump from the app's small screen to Hulu, headlining their own reality show about … well, that jump, and the other attempts at off-platform fame they're chasing after becoming TikTok's biggest names. But what the show ends up being is a look at girlboss-ery on overdrive, as these girls try to juggle everything-- even though they may never be able to do so, nor handle the costs. The D'Amelio Show (all eight episodes of which dropped on September 3) follows the two sisters along with their parents, Marc and Heidi, living in Los Angeles and navigating influencer life. Charli D'Amelio, who turns 17 in the final episode of the season, holds the title of the most-followed creator on TikTok with 124 million followers, after shooting to fame in 2019 with her viral dance performance videos.
