Burnt Bite

Food and drink infused with toasted flavors offer a sophisticated profile

Implications - Consumers are experiencing an emergence of food and drink offerings that are characterized by unexpected burnt, bitter notes. Often incorporated into dishes and drinks that don't normally require direct contact with a grill, such charred menu items provide a complex and assertive smoky flavor that helps bring out complementing flavor profiles and balance out sugar contents. This progression speaks to the consumer preference for unexpected sweet and salty combinations that highlight the contrast between the two profiles.
