It’s hard to market-forecast for “it” new flavors. Did you see kale
coming? Or hummus? I was like hummus? What? I only really understood it when I lived in Israel.
Or bagels becoming available in the freezer section of grocery stores rather than having to walk to Bageland, in Squirrel Hill, Pittsburgh, in Western Pennsylvania where I am from?
Imagine the zeitgeist that lead to Cool Ranch Doritos
? Or the brain power behind all the lovely, fantastical Willy Wonka wonderful flavors (banana, cantaloupe, red bean and more!) available in overseas Kit Kat bars
Let’s get on this, America. Enough with the pumpkin spice. The next presidential candidates’ debate should be about A New Fall Flavor. I would tune in for that. And I’m Generation X. I don’t give a $%$! about anything.
I have a lot riding on the ascendance of chestnut as the new LBD/PSL of the flavor world because I have a tree full of them in my backyard and would like to enjoy early retirement by means of a cash crop, but I’m open to suggestions. What flavor do you nominate?
Please don’t say butternut squash. Or Hubbard. Read my lips, America, No more squashes.
