Top 100 Food Concepts in September

From Galactic Soup Cans to Mobile Bread Boutiques

— September 30, 2015 — Lifestyle
As many of the top September 2015 food ideas indicate, the onset of autumn ushers in a whole new range of seasonal foods and flavors, from warming spices to the savory notes of Thanksgiving.

Pumpkin spice remains one of the most talked-about flavors of the season, especially since Starbucks will now be launching this season's iconic Pumpkin Spice Lattes with real pumpkin flavors. Other brands that made headlines include M&M’s and Kellogg's, which both announced new pumpkin spice candy and cereal flavors.

Now that it's time for kids to pack up their summer camp gear and head back to school, back-to-school lunches are being made exciting with guitar-shaped lunchboxes and chocolate bar wrappers that are styled like the pages of a coloring book.
