Tawdrily and falsely attractive; superficially significant. Don’t confuse this one with delicious.

Tidbit from Merriam-Webster: β€œMeretricious can be traced back to the Latin verb merere, meaning β€˜to earn, gain, or deserve.’ It shares this origin with a small group of other English words, including β€˜merit, meritorious, and emeritus.’ But, while these words can suggest some degree of honor or esteem, β€˜meretricious’ is used to suggest pretense, insincerity, and cheap or tawdry ornamentation.”
