From Probiotic Oatmeal Cups to Waffled Fried Chicken Sandwiches

 - Apr 29, 2018
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. Whether it is protein-rich snacks such as Kashi's new Golean Peanut Butter Crunch cereal or gut-boosting breakfasts such as Bakery On Main's probiotic oatmeal cups, it is clear that consumers want to get the most out of everything they eat.

Despite the popularity of better-for-you products, the April 2018 food trends reveal that consumers have not completely shunned indulgent treats and over-the-top meals. 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 .
