From fermented veggies to fried chicken sandwiches, the April 2018 food trends reveal that consumers continue to look for healthier food options, while still indulging in the occasional over-the-top treat.
When it comes to eating healthier, there is a continued push for store-bought items that offer an extra nutritional boost.

For instance, Outback Steakhouse recently transformed it's calorie-rich Bloomin' Onion appetizer into the even more indulgent 3-Point Rib Bloom. Similarly, KFC's added a fluffy Belgian waffle to the middle of its deep-fried Double Down sandwich .
