Flavor and Color Trends: Baked Goods & Snacks

Excerpt from Snack Food and Wholesale Bakery, March 9, 2016

Ed McIntosh, Marketing Manager at Flavorchem Corp., Downers Grove, IL, predicts more savory flavors and flavor mash-ups will appear in breads—trends he attributes to millennials and gen X. The company recently expanded its savory bread flavors to include profiles such as Sweet Fennel, Mediterranean Herb Blend, Seafood Spice Oil Blend, and many more.

Nostalgia is another trend still prevalent in the baked goods category. Radke cites root beer, s’mores, bubble gum, cotton candy and birthday cake as flavors making a come-back in the food and beverage world.
