Food Trends

I love trying to be a futurist. That is - I like to try and forecast the future, predicting fads and watching trends. So, I love it when I spot something exciting going on... seeing a revolution or even a common consensus form. It was so cool in the nineties to see grunge become widely popular coming from small northwest indie labels. There is a moment when you first hear about something, whether it's Teletubbies or Hannah Montana, and all of a sudden it's everywhere - tv, bumperstickers, and in jokes by Jay Leno on the Tonight Show. And I think that's magical, and a lot of fun trying to second-guess the vox populi.

So, I've been thinking about food lately. I blogged a while back about Fleur de Sel candy. Basically, caramels with sea salt embedded in them. I thought they were going to be *hugely* popular. Guess I was wrong. I was also mistaken when I thought that Gogol Bordello would be a hit rock group. So, please take all my advice with a grain of salt. Or sea salt, if you prefer.
