        Welcome to the Flavor Forecast 24th Edition!

        This year’s exciting trends are the answer to cravings observed around the world. This includes an intentional approach to new-age fusion through regional-traditional cooking (Thoughtfully Borrowed), the layers of flavor and craveability brought to food and drink through acidic agents (Sour Power), and the thoughtful personalization of indulgence today (Indulgence Redefined).
        The 2024 Flavor of the Year

        TAMARIND & PASILLA CHILE SEASONING

        Complementing each of this year’s trends, we’re pleased to share our 2024 Flavor of the Year: Tamarind, which is featured in our new seasoning blend Tamarind & Pasilla Chile Seasoning. With innovative uses in origin cuisines, to elevating dishes and drinks with its craveable tartness, and effortlessly cutting through richness and heat, there is no slowing this fun and funky fruit down.
         
        But wait, there’s more! Throughout the month of February, we are partnering with globally acclaimed burger joint Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer across its US locations to infuse the 2024 Flavor of the Year in new limited-time menu items, including the NEW Tamarind Chile Jam Burger, Tamarind & Pasilla Chile Fries, and Tamarind Chile Cocoa Churro CRAZYSHAKE®.
         

        THE 2024 FLAVOR OF THE YEAR

        This tangy, Mexican-inspired seasoning blend pairs tamarind flavor with the mild heat of pasilla chiles and savory notes of paprika, coriander, and onion. Available for a limited time.

        Sour Power

        TREND #1: SOUR POWER

        Pucker up, buttercup! Sour has stepped into the spotlight, revolutionizing kitchens and menus with layer upon layer of flavor, bringing balance to richer dishes and brightness to crisp ceviche. Next-level sour is taking a jump-off from lemon and balsamic acidities and diving into the deep end with stand-out flavors and ingredients like tigre de leche (tiger’s milk marinade), calamansi, sour orange, plum, and pickled and fermented foods.

        Thoughtfully Borrowed

        TREND #2: THOUGHTFULLY BORROWED

        Fusion? That’s so 2000. With a new definition of authenticity that encompasses background, heritage, and experience, we see a reinvention of regional-traditional cooking. These conscious cultural combinations pay homage and respect to both roots and backgrounds – celebrating flavor, experience, and cuisine.

        TREND #3: INDULGENCE REDEFINED

        A source of pleasure, ritual, and community, indulgence is something to take seriously – and personally. With the reimagination of indulgence today, it’s all about YOU! With our lived experiences varying from one person to the next, and directly impacting our cravings, bold, exciting, nuanced flavors come in all shapes and forms.
