New Market Research Report -- Burger King Bacon Sundae -- The Wacky World of Food Creation

ROCKVILLE, MD--(Marketwire - Oct 9, 2012) - has announced the addition of the new report "Innovations in Food and Drink Flavors," to their collection of market reports.

Despite the significance of key consumer trends such as health and convenience, taste remains the dominant influence on consumer choice. Flavor innovation is integral to new product development and cross-category migration represents a proven method of inspiration. This report provides a review of the most interesting flavor developments in food and drinks and highlights areas of opportunity.

New bakery and cereal flavors include new savory sources such as Sea Salt and Seaweed, as well as the confectionery flavors, Nougat and Marshmallow. Red and berry fruits (Plum, Forest Fruit, and Red Fruit) also appear as new flavors in this category. The sweet and savory mix of new flavors in this category is interesting. It is interesting to note that popular, traditional flavors are evolving courtesy of their development and description in terms of their authenticity, provenance, and specificity. Some recent product launches feature varietal flavors of strawberry such as Senga, or Wild Strawberry. Almonds have traditionally been seen as a specialist nut for confectionery, snacking and baking, but more recently they are appearing in a range of categories, having been successfully promoted by growers and manufacturers. In the decade up to 2011, North American per capita consumption of California Almonds grew 71%.
