5 Snacks With Unique Flavor Profiles to Delight Your Tastebuds

5 Snacks With Unique Flavor Profiles to Delight Your Tastebuds

We are truly living in an age of experimentation, but endless options for snacking have left the market a little stale. This is driving a consumer demand for innovative and pleasantly unexpected flavors in staple foods that we enjoy regularly. A simple twist in ingredients is sometimes all it takes to make a meal transform from drab to divine. Here are 5 snackable foods that are adding a little excitement to our lives.   1 – The Bees Knees   The phrase “it’s the bee’s knees” couldn’t be any more appropriate to describe this delectable treat. While we’ve long seen honeys accentuated by herbal and fruit-based ingredients, adding a spicy kick opens up a whole new world of possibilities to this condiment. Naka Noke & Sons     These salsas are a delightful infusion of Japanese and Mexican flavors. With a texture more akin to mole (a traditional Mexican sauce), they are an excellent way to enhance your favorite dishes. The http://www.viagragenericoes24.com/que-es-la-viagra Chaat Co     Yogurt has generally been designated as a sweet breakfast treat in American cuisine, save for the odd tzatziki dip that might accompany a gyro or falafel plate. The Chaat Co elevates yogurt as a whole new kind of snack by combining savory flavors with crunchy puffed lentils. Similarly, the Chobani Flip yogurts, which have expanded into this space with flavors like Chipotle Pineapple and Sriracha Mango.   Delighted By Hummus   If you could add one flavor to this delightful lineup, what would it be?! #desserthummus A photo posted by The Original Dessert Hummus™ (@delightedbydesserthummus) on Jun 23, 2016 at 5:57am PDT   The blended chick pea snack we know as hummus is a crowd favorite...
Kellogg’s Cereal Bar Moves into Time Square

Kellogg’s Cereal Bar Moves into Time Square

On the streets of New York City it is not rare to run into up and coming restaurants. One café, located at 1600 Broadway is breaking into a space that brings back the nostalgia of eating breakfast cereal. The café will serve dishes that feature classic Kellogg’s cereals combined with unique ingredients that make it a place where eating cereal for lunch is an encouraged feat. In an article written in The NY Times we hear the voice of Milk Bar, head chef Christina Tosi on the development of creative ingredients. She says in her interview, “I believe in the excitement a bowl of cereal can bring anytime of the day and I’m so excited to bring back a household staple in a fun, creative way!” The hope of this restaurant/ café is to bring a creative twist back to the food world. The cereal dishes are meant to maximize the full potential of any culinary kitchen by adding unique ingredients to childhood favorite cereals; such as frosted flakes, corn flakes and frosted mini wheat’s. Even with the Times Square location, the all-day cereal café is trying to keep a low profile. While its surroundings are tall buildings with bright lights, Kellogg’s is keeping to its simple, family brand style. They are not focused on keeping up with the flash of Times square, but staying true to the their classic brand name. Not only does this appeal to the local New Yorker, but also the parents that feed there kids cereal every morning. Inside you will find the restaurant uses milk from local dairy farms and ingredients that can...
Yogurt: Positioning and Perspective

Yogurt: Positioning and Perspective

Yogurt is a serious player in the food industry. In fact, it’s even been crowned as New York’s official state snack! This dairy delight has existed in various forms for centuries, but took some time for America to fully embrace. In the 1940’s, Dannon established itself in the US and made the unfamiliar product popular by introducing yogurt with strawberry fruit on the bottom of the cup. Since then, the way yogurt is positioned has been a constant, fascinating evolution.  The Original Dannon (Source) Lighten Up It didn’t take long for the yogurt category to begin shifting toward lower fat options. Though many diet friendly foods were synonymous with being tasteless, companies like Dannon and Yoplait positioned yogurt as an alternative sweet tooth fix that could aid with weight loss. With decadent dessert flavors and parfait options being introduced, yogurt took its first steps outside of its designated breakfast role. Dannon Light (Source) Yoplait Light Advertisement (Source) One for the Kids Getting children to eat healthy is often a feat in its own right. Marketing products which appeal to both them and their parents is always a challenge. We’ve seen this obstacle overcome in a myriad of ways; some by adding animated characters, including sprinkles, or creating a totally revolutionary structure that allows them to eat and play simultaneously. Danimals Yogurt with Sprinkles (Source) Yoplait GoGurt (Source)   For Your Health Yogurts have become more function focused than ever.  The probiotics in yogurt are great for gut health. Activia took that a step further by creating an exclusive culture that would help to improve digestive health. Another huge benefit of yogurt is it’s packed with protein. Seeing that yogurt has widely been marketed to a female audience,...

Packaging Haul 10

In this round of our Packaging Haul, we’re admiring some products that are seriously summer worthy. With bright colors and playful illustrations, there’s an energy to all of these that has us beaming. So settle into your lawn chair with a beer, a popsicle, a bag of crisps (ideally all three!) and see what all the buzz is about.     1 – Crane Brewing Crane Brewery, 15 minutes outside of downtown Kansas City, is an unassuming hole in the wall brewery that specializes in Sour Beers. They have a cult following and beers are constantly flowing amongst the happy beer drinkers that always fill the modest sized tap room. These beautiful and unique labels caught my eye because they look curated for a brewery much larger than Crane. They are incredibly well done; the geometric shapes, color palette and whimsical nature make for a look much different than anything else you see on the shelf at the liquor store. – Abby Designed By: Crane Brewing (In House) 2 – Hippeas The worlds most iconic brands are created through consistency and duration … but Hippeas has managed to hijack an already iconic symbol, the smiley face. They built upon those positive associations and re-appropriated it to be fresh, contextual and meaningful. They’ve bypassed the need for time to create something iconic in its own right. – Fred Designer: Jones Knowles Richie 3 – Dr. Feelgood’s Ice Pops In the midst of this hot summer Dr. Feelgood’s Ice Pops are looking mighty refreshing right about now. These fun, cardboard sealed popsicles are all-natural, dairy-free with no refined sugar! Jam-packed with friendly typography and irresistible decorative elements, they...
