Top 80 Unique Ideas in December

From Brain-Covered Biscuits to LEGO Strip Club Sets

— December 27, 2014 — Tech
Bizarre food items occupy much of this collection of the top December 2014 unique ideas. Restaurants and food companies are constantly pushing the boundaries with unexpected, peculiar -- and often disgusting -- flavor combinations.

Some of the most notable items featured include the lemon and strawberry-flavored hot dogs, the chocolate chip flavored water and pumpkin spice hamburger patties. Brands seem to see no limit when it comes to flavoring their products with pumpkin.

Items like the strip club-inspired LEGO set by Citizen Brick and the shirt-pressing cafe where you can have a cappuccino and your shirt ironed in Japan proves that there really might be a market for everything.

If you're interested in gaining addition examples and research for the most popular December 2014 unique ideas, check out Trend Hunter's 2014 Unique Trend Report.
