Top 100 Food Trends in May

From AI Chocolate Pairings to Frozen Root Beer Floats

— May 25, 2019 — Lifestyle
The series of May 2019 food trends highlight different ways of consumption and innovative creations that either stems from a health-focused angle, to suit an on-the-go lifestyle or more.

There are many cultural inspirations behind these food ideas as well, including the approach Kit Kat took using artificial intelligence. It sourced local ingredients in Japan and creates chocolate pairings with sake, fusing food and technology together in this approach. With the rising temperatures, Barq's prepares with its frozen rootbeer and vanilla ice cream flat tubes. It draws a sense of nostalgia with the freezie tubes and sweet bubbly flavors of the drink as well. The frozen tubes are squeeze-up and feature a perfect blend of creamy vanilla ice cream and classic root beer by Barq's.
