So many trends, so little time…

Food for Thought

  • Q: What food trend was famously emerged in the town of Neuchâtel, Switzerland?
  • A: Fondue

Out of the Frying Pan Picks:

  • Thoughts on the gourmet burger: it’s almost a competition to see who can be the most outrageous
  • Greek yogurt: has invaded dairy shelves like the Trojan horse
  • Indian food: great untapped ethnic food trend
  • Flax seed: don’t need to put it in everything
  • Red prince apple: Just when you thought you new everything about apples, another branded variety emerges
  • Low carb diets: the same thing reinvented over and over
  • Pomegranite juice: biggest health snake oil trend since snake oil
  • Food trucks: here to stay
