Smoky Heat

Consumers gravitate towards the richness found in smokey, spicy dishes

Implications - As consumers become more accustomed to spice, they are beginning to crave more than just heat. Dishes that include smokey, spicy flavors add texture and body to the taste and experience of a meal. Smoked herbs and spices strengthen existing flavors, giving an all-around richness that's well appreciated, especially keeping in mind that most consumers now consider themselves to be foodies.
