Two of the latest trends are pictured below.
One is Bubly, a refreshing new seltzer. To be honest it made its' debut a couple of months ago. There are a variety of flavors and unlike other seltzers are flavored much more strongly than other seltzers. I first became aware of them when I would buy their strawberry flavor for rides down the New Jersey shore. The taste was amazing - as if I had squeezed fresh strawberries in plain seltzer. It was refreshing and delicious , especially for an hour to an hour and a half trip in solid Sunday traffic. When my Stop & Shop offered their twelve box cans on sale, I snapped them. up. The cherry flavor was crisp, think regular cherry soda without all that cloying sweetness. (it made a phenomenal base for egg creams.) Their lemon and lime was also very flavorful and I 'm looking forward to trying their grapefruit. and mango. Another trend is whipped cream made with different milks. Living in a vegan household, makes having certain foods difficult. One of them is whipped cream, the type you spritz on sundaes and hot cocoas. I tried Reddi-Whip's new vegan creams. in coconut. The taste was slightly like that of an Almond Joy .Unfortunately the trademark ruffly look didn't come out and it kind of looked like vanilla pudding on my coffee. Maybe the almond milk one will be better.
For those wanting a better non-dairy whipped cream try this Soyatoo Rice whip.It does have a slightly boiled rice flavor but it holds its'. shape once it's squirted out.
Hershey's has come out with a chocolate and even a peanut butter whipped cream which I can see on ice cream, Death By Chocolate or even cupcakes.Reddi-whip already has a chocolate whipped cream which has been out for some time.Some celebrities that are trending for the fall food season may be using any of these for their dessert recipes. One big trend right now is Chrissie Tiegen, who just recently published a cookbook. Hungry For More.Her banana chocolate bread looks amazing, especially since she pairs it with salted butter. Another celebrity with a cookbook is the ever practical Joannna Gaines whose Magnolia Table has a juicy homemade chicken pot pie recipe. (both recipes can be found in the latest issue of People Magazine.
It's fall and that means new food trends and products. Try them for novelty's sake . They may just be your family's new favorite.
