What Will Be The Next Bacon? Our Top 5 Trend Predictions
Food trends are unpredictable in nature. Some rise into popularity seemingly overnight and then disappear without a trace, while others linger on for years (*cough cough CUPCAKES! cough cough*). Who knows what will spark our collective curiosity next?
Here are our best guesses:
1. Paletas – These intensely flavored popsicles hit with a bang this summer, thanks in no small part to Fany Gerson’s swoon-worthy cookbook.
2. Kombucha – As a drink on it’s own, kombucha is already trending in a big way. How much do you want to bet that we’re going to start seeing things like kombucha sorbet and kombucha-marinated shrimp skewers?
4. Bugs – Edible bugs are popping up all over the place, from grasshopper tacos in San Francisco (double trend!) to cicada ice cream in Missouri. With the continuing focus on finding sustainable food sources, I’m guessing that crunchy high-protein insects as ingredients is going to be picking up traction.
