Going Bananas: Winter Fancy Food Show Picks Top Food Trends

By: Sarah De Heer
Bananas

This past weekend in San Francisco, Winter Fancy Food Show attendees discovered more than 80,000 products — from cheeses to teas to olive oils and meats, there's no shortage of food and beverages to captivate industry insiders, food-lovers, restaurateurs and the media.

The show also predicts upcoming trends for the industry. Last year we saw lots of pickling (which made its way into many restaurants), ancient grains (quinoa and chia), coconut in ice cream, pudding and jam, and gluten-free products that people can rely on.

This year's top food trends have just been picked by a panel of trendspotters, and bananas will now have their time in the spotlight. Still staying in the sweets bucket, the trendspotters loved the banana within Vosges Haut-Chocolat's Wild Ophelia Peanut Butter & Banana Milk Chocolate Bar, PB Crave's CoCo Bananas Peanut Butter and GoodPop's Banana Cinnamon Frozen Pop.

Bring this trend into your kitchen by trying these recipes:
