The weather’s getting colder, the holidays are drawing near and it’s basically our favorite time of year. Not because of all the family merriment, bonding and good cheer (though that stuff’s all great too) — but because it’s finally time to find out about what food trends we can look forward to in the coming year.
Whole Foods, the Specialty Foods Association and AF&Co have all released their trend forecasts for 2018, and there’s a lot to get excited about. Some of what we can see in the coming year builds off 2017’s hot trends — seltzer has started a sparkling beverage craze, and the popularity of Trader Joe’s canned wines has vintner’s eschewing glass bottles in favor of innovative new packaging. But we’re even more excited to see new foods and flavors from around the world on our plates and to discover new ways to boost our health with superfoods like maca and reishi.
Check out all the foods and food trends we predict will be huge in 2018.
