Where does lemon bars meme come from?
The lemon bars meme started in May 2018 when Reddit user u/Tuxedo-T-Shirt posted a comment to the r/bisexual subreddit reading: “Welcome to the Bi Side! Have a lemon bar!”
The lemon bar greeting caught on and people, in true interest fashion, embellished it into a full meme online. Notable examples include a lemon bar dessert tray decorated to look like the bisexuality flag, as posted by u/llamadoctorsbabygirl, and a poster design featuring the flag, a picture of a lemon bar, and the Gadsden flag motto Don’t Tread on Me, as posted by u/NB419.
A month after the meme had gone viral, u/Tuxedo-T-Shirt made a post explaining that the choice of lemon bars was spontaneous. It was inspired in part by a Star Wars t-shirt printed with Come to the Dark Side. We have cookies., as well as the 1999 South Park Movie, where the main characters try to entice people to join their effort to save two TV actors by offering “punch and pie.”

Who uses lemon bars meme?
The lemon bars meme has mainly remained in circulation in the subreddit bisexuality community where it started. However, due to the popularity of the meme, some have made lemon bars the unofficial pastry (and broader symbol) of bisexuality, referencing the dessert in content related to the sexual orientation.
