Top 100 Food Trends in December

From Celebrity Chef Meal Deliveries to Produce-Packed Chip Snacks

— December 28, 2019 — Lifestyle
The December 2019 food category features innovation like Black Sheep Foods' plant-based lamb burger, Roy Boys' extravagant loaded Dessert Tacos, Meati Foods' plant-based whole-muscle meat alternatives, Trader Joe’s bite-size cheesecake cones, Hakuna Foods' nutrient-dense eco-friendly meals, and more.

Highligted in the December 2019 food round-up is also a development that will assist small-scale farmers to utilize their land even on challenging terain. Created by Dutch designer Thom Bindels, the Ecosystem Kickstarter presents a cardboard frame that is shaped like a honeycomb. The biodegradable aid will be able to support planting efforts in degraded soil.

Another interesting adventure is 'The Unicorn.' This is a rainbow-covered poutine delicacy that is available to order at Toronto's newly opened Enchanted Poutinerie. Needless to say, the product is very whimsical and photo-friendly.
