Top 60 Food Product Ideas in October

From Pumpkin Shortbread Cookies to Yam-Flavored Dessert Cups

— October 28, 2017 — Lifestyle
With fall in full swing, the October 2017 food product trends reveal a strong emphasis on seasonal flavors such as pumpkin, apple, and squash.

Just like previous years, pumpkin spice remains a popular flavor for everything from sweet desserts to savory snacks. This year's offerings include unique treats such as Pumpkin Spice RXBARS, You Fresh Naturals' new Pumpkin Spice Pro Popped popcorn, and the Peanut Butter & Co. Pumpkin Spice sandwich spread.

In addition to pumpkin spice, the October 2017 food product trends reveal that there is a strong demand for other classic fall flavors. For instance, the new bare Pie Spice Apple Chips boast the familiar flavor of freshly picked apples. Similarly, Field Roast has debuted vegan Apple Maple Breakfast Sausages that are infused with the taste of maple syrup and apples.
