Top 55 Pop Culture Trends in September

From ASL Pop Albums to Musical Cookie Ice Creams

— September 26, 2020 — Pop Culture
From ASL pop albums to musical cookie ice creams, the September 2020 pop culture trends showcase how mainstream culture affects the products and services offered by brands.

Notably, the newest Serendipity ice cream flavor launched in conjunction with the new BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez single, appropriately named Ice Cream. The flavor was inspired by the new single and it boasts pink vanilla ice cream infused with crunchy cookie pieces and swirls of fudge. The new partnership showcases how pop culture influences many of the products we enjoy.

In addition, the launch of the Pillsbury Mean Girls Toaster Strudel highlights the staying power of popular films in society. The limited-edition offering from the brand takes cues from the subtle mention of that character Gretchen Weiners' father was the inventor of Toaster Strudel. The pastry fittingly comes with pink icing, allowing consumers to customize it to their liking.
