U.S. Food, Dining and Beverage Trends 2010 – 3

THE NEWS: The Dec. 15 Los Angeles Times passed along some food trend predictions for 2010 from J. Walter Thompson: bacon in cocktails and ice cream; Fast food organic eateries; resurgence in wine cocktails; backlash on food health claims; and sardines are back.
WHAT IT MEANS: Chefs are messing with bacon but 99.9% of Americans will still eat their strips at breakfast and lunch. Organic/sustainable/local/healthy fast food outlets will be widespread within five years. Wine cocktails? Who really cares? And real, fresh (not canned) grilled or pan-fried sardines are indeed a taste delight and deserve to be more popular.
