ive wondered about these trendy little food crazes that seem to catch on.

few i can still think of currently

bacon
its everywhere. not just regular bacon but restaurants offer bacon on ice cream and candied bacon. i see people with shirts that proclaim how awesome bacon is all the time....it is a current fad.

sriracha.....same as bacon. im seeing it on shirts. fast food joints have sriracha infused buns and sriracha laden cheese to go on their sriracha burger....its all over

ghost pepper.....kind of a craze right now. wendys has or just has ghost pepper fries. seeing ghost pepper infused smokies at the deli....

kombucha is a new one...this # is nasty...it is showing up all over the place...all the grocery stores have it. im seeing commercials for it... up till recently i didnt even know what it was...

cold pressed juices....seeing them everywhere. first place i saw them was trader joes. super expensive. like $7 for a 20 ounce type bottle. saw then yesterday at my local grocery store. a bunch of flavors. not as expensive but still up there....

how do these trends start and what starts them off you think?'

i go back 5 years and of course i remember people eating bacon but i dont recall them advertising it as a lifestyle....

any food trends you notice?

Just off the top of my head, I have no food trends to add...but you can never have too many Sriracha-infused food items. Never!! Sriracha FTW!!!

Bacon was a fad in the late 2000's. It's really not as popular as it used to be. Granted it is delicious, but it isn't fadish anymore. You are about 5 years too late for these fads (even Siracha isn't that fashionable anymore). Now if you had mentioned kale or gluton free I would have agreed with you.

I agree with you on the Siracha.

It's freaking hot sauce people.

And my homemade is way better. LOL

I used to like Siracha, then right before it got super popular in the mid-2000's I stopped eating it. Not because I didn't like it anymore, just because I liked other hot sauces better. It's good, but it isn't incredible or anything. Good marketing I guess.

I can remember when yoghurt was just a trendy food craze. Together with Muesli.

Yeah, I think it is just marketing. Some take off, some don't.

Hubby is insane for hot sauces, so I grow some different peppers every year, and experiment with sauces for him and his buddies.

Sriracha is overrated. Pico Pica is THE BEST hot sauce in the market.

That's awesome. Homemade hotsauces are always hotter anyways. My buddy's mom has a garden where she grows peppers and tomatoes. I've had a few of their fresh jalapenos and they will knock your socks off hot. My friends made me eat a HUGE one seeds and all uncooked and raw. Wow...

I too am confused about a person suggesting bacon is a craze.

I like trendy food, especially Sriracha! Ghost pepper I am still trying to grow.

Southwest grilling and nonGMO appear to be the trends now.

you forgot Avocado, it's freeking everywhere, on subs, in burgers, on freeking pizza. I've been enjoying sriracha since I started cooking thai and viet food back in the 80's and I love it not so much for the heat (there are hotter sauces i enjoy) but for the flavour; I agree it's gone stupid in everything and getting annoying like Kale did a few years back. Food fads are annoying in that it floods the market till you're sick and tired of it.

You're missing a line.

It should be:

Bacon is not a fad; bacon is LIFE!

For a while it was chipotle. I am proud to say I liked it before it was cool and still do.
