Remember when stuffed crust pizza and hot pockets were all the rage? Maybe they still are in your home. Sometimes food trends never go out of style, but there are definitely some foods that hit peak popularity in each decade and year. For example, there was a time when everyone and their mom were taking deviled eggs and sherbert punch to the neighborhood Tupperware parties.
Food trends have a way of rising and fading with the passing years, and 2023 is no different. This year has its own food trends on the rise and you’ll want to try each tasty new item on the list!
Food Trends in 2023 You Should Know About
If you know how popular oat milk and White Claw were yester-year, you’ll want to know this year’s new emerging trends. Below are only some of the many in-demand foods you’ll see landing on the menu and the grocery aisles more than ever.
1. Tinned Fish Dish
Consumers are jumping on the latest fad of eating tinned fish thanks to a viral TikTok video. The amazing health benefits that haven’t been as mainstream as now are becoming a big deal in the food scene. Tinned fish could include anchovies, sardines, tuna, mackerel, cod, etc. You’ll likely see more trendy restaurants offering tinned fish dishes on their menu.
2. Spicy-Sweet Food Combinations
“Swizy” food is the combo of both of these polar opposite worlds. The sweet and spicy taste elements are present in trending foods such as:
- Hot Honey
- Chili Chocolate
- South Korean comfort food (e.g. Ddeokbokki, Gochujang, etc.)
Just as kale was all the rage not that long ago, kelp is the new green food popping up in grocery store aisles, including the pasta aisle, as an alternative to traditional pasta. Kelp chips, kelp noodles, you name it: kelp is on the rise. A double bonus is its climate-friendly contribution.
4. Upcycled Food Products
The concept behind this trend is to utilize and repurpose ingredients from other foods during processing that would’ve otherwise ended up in the waste bin and landfill. Reducing food waste with innovative solutions is what 2023 is all about. Be on the lookout for more converted foods like potato skins repurposed into potato chips or baking flour.
5. Going ‘Damp’
This new term basically describes the big trend of cutting back on high alcohol consumption. No alcohol or low levels of alcohol are trending big time in 2023. More consumers are opting for a more healthy lifestyle with beverage choices that support this.
Some no or low-alcohol drinks include:
- SinZero Cabernet Saven
- Zuzu Calamansi Lime Margarita
- Atopia Spiced Citrus
It’s exciting to see what’s hitting the food scene across restaurants, bars and grocery stores everywhere. If you haven’t given some of these tasty food and drink items a try already, you’ve got all year to see for yourself what all the hype is about!
