Top 100 Food Product Ideas in November

From Seasonal Jerky Snacks to Multilayered Candy Bars

— November 27, 2016 — Lifestyle
From chocolate and candy bars to beef jerky and coconut chips, the November 2016 food product trends reveal that no dish is safe from a seasonal makeover.

For many brands, fall is the perfect time to release limited-edition treats that will appeal to hungry to trick-or-treaters. For instance, Nestle recently gave its Butterfinger Peanut Butter Cups a Halloween-inspired makeover by molding each candy the shape of a skull. Even brands making healthier snacks such as Kerry Foods have put a spooky twist on kid-centric products such as cheese strings.

However, not all seasonal makeovers are designed for the Halloween season. As the November 2016 food product trends reveal, fall flavors such as pumpkin, apple and salted caramel remain extremely popular among consumers looking for an easy way to usher in the new season.
