Top 100 Food Trends in March

From Edible Burger Billboards to Blue Cheese Easter Eggs

— March 25, 2018 — Lifestyle
Even though the March 2018 food trends are about food, they're also non-edible articles. Does that mean that they're both food for eating and food for thought? It's a tricky conundrum that, unfortunately, humanity will never have an answer for.

As consumers are looking for ways to both help the environment and help their bodies, salad jars have emerged as a clever option that satisfies both desires at once. The jars come loaded with all the healthy ingredients of a gourmet salad, and their glass containers are also fully recyclable. In March, BOL Foods is coming to the fore as one of the best options in this category.

Not all healthy snacks need to come in the form of a salad, though. Sometimes, even pork rinds can be healthful, as the carb-free Epic Artisanal Pork Rinds show.
