Customers want flavor they’ll remember!
The Four Big Flavors used to be Barbecue, Buffalo, Cajun and Caesar. Those aren’t going away, but now the public’s palette is much more broad, and people are looking for interesting, potent, new tastes. A good example of this is sriracha, relatively unknown in 2013, it’s now available even on small town supermarket shelves. Experts can’t agree on a specific trend; South American, Asian, Mediterranean, and regional American specialties are all becoming popular, but the following quote sums up the metatrend:
Region-specific flavors, umami, smoky, hot & sweet – all of these represent options that will draw diner’s interests to your menu.
