Somehow we are at food trends the end of 2021 already. This year has felt like 100 years and also two days all in one, and we’re all more than a little glad to kiss it goodbye…or more appropriately, give it the finger goodbye.
In 2022, many food trends we’ve seen start this year will likely carry over. Below we’ve forecasted just a few things we think you’ll be seeing more of in 2022.
Plant-based items continue to be a trend into 2021, More people will be flirting with veganism, but others will just be eating things that taste good and happen to be vegan. Expect the usual suspects to be rolling out even more innovations, especially at fast-food restaurants, but some forecasters predict newer things like plant-based “fish” are also going to be big on the horizon.
Many of us actually have time to think about breakfast. Seriously, even cereal saw a huge bump this year. Next year, instead of eating a cold granola bar on your commute, expect to see more Instagrams about meal prepping breakfast sandwiches, new fast food breakfast items being released, and maybe even the resurgence of overnight oats. Oh, and on that note…
We literally started playing with our food in 2020, and will see that to continue into 2021. From the seeds of whipped coffee (and strawberry milk…and peanut butter milk…etc) and pancake cereal will come the next wave of Instagrammable food that will probably take you hours to make and seconds to eat…but who’s judging?
This is a kind of 2020 trend that will only get more popular into next year…maybe because this year, we literally ran out of mason jars lids as so many people were trying out canning. Expect UFABET people showing off their gardens in the spring as well as how they will turn their harvests into jars of pickled cucumbers, red onions, radishes, and more.
