Culinary Fusion v2

Implications - Consumers are consistently hunting for novelty and ways in which they can impress other members of society with their courage.

Examples include crackers with wasps in them; ice cream in vegetable, jelly fish, squid gut and charcoal flavors; and salad-flavored water.
