FLAVORS TO WATCH IN 2024
ESCAPE TO THE FUTURE
2024 will bring us more sci-fi and futuristic flavors. Consumers seek new, imaginative flavors like unicorn and rainbow. Imaginative flavors are colorful, bold, and creative. In 2024 prepare to find more galaxy and space themed products with colorful, fruity flavor combinations including red raspberry, dark cherry, blackberry, and blue raspberry.
THE NEXT CHILI DUO
The sweet heat trend continues, so keep your eyes open for innovative chili and fruit pairings. Mango chili, watermelon chili, and pineapple chili have proven successful in the marketplace. Next contenders are grapefruit chili, kiwi chili, and strawberry chili!
Cocktail-inspired flavors have aided in innovating the nutraceutical industry with flavors such as mango margarita, watermelon mojito, and strawberry daiquiri. We foresee new mocktail blends with alternative fruits and fusion flavors like passion fruit pina colada, raspberry mojito, and blood orange mule.
Espresso martinis are standing out at restaurants and bars across the nation. Get ready to see espresso martini as an innovative flavor in supplements, bakery, and confectionery.
Mediterranean dishes have been trending in 2023 in prepared meals, sauces, and dips. We are also seeing a rise in flavored hummus variations. Therefore, we predict the Mediterranean trend will influence new baklava flavored protein and nutritional bars allowing consumers to experience the taste of the mouth-watering honey, nut, phyllo dough treat.
Consumers continue to prioritize relaxation, seeking peace, calmness, tranquility, and sweet dreams. As additional mood-support supplements and beverages enter the nutraceutical industry, we plan to see more flavors like lavender, chamomile, and passionflower, oftentimes paired with vanilla, peach, berry, and citrus flavors.
We’ve been watching the boom in dill pickle flavor in chips, snacks, condiments, and dips. We foresee dill pickle and spicy dill pickle flavors moving into nutritional products like protein chips, snacks, sauces, and even beverages.
Botanical flavors such as hibiscus, lavender, and rose have become common in the food and beverage industries. We are now starting to see honeysuckle as an innovative ingredient. Keep an eye out for honeysuckle flavor and pairings like honeysuckle citrus and honeysuckle raspberry.
