Food Trends From This Past Decade We've Already Forgotten About

Everyone knows that food trends tend to come and go, and the 2010s have been no exception. From trendy veggies to extreme desserts to the rise and fall of superfoods, here are the food trends from the past decade that everyone has already forgotten.

In 2013, quinoa was the superfood that took the world by storm. It was even dubbed the International Year of Quinoa by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. So yeah. Big year for Quinoa. This superfood became especially popular on the health food market, offering a product that was high in protein and fiber, all while being gluten-free and full of vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids. And as this picture-perfect superfood grew in popularity, a whole industry grew around it. In 2014 alone, the United States imported almost 70 million pounds of the hyper-popular grain. But as the quinoa craze continued to blossom, people started to realize that the grain came with its downsides. 

In 2013, The Guardian reported that the price of quinoa had tripled since 2006. And while Western consumers had to pay just a little bit extra for the superfood, the people really affected by the price-hike were those in Bolivia and Peru, where the grain naturally grows. Thanks to its insane popularity overseas, the people of those countries were no longer able to afford a food they had been accustomed to for hundreds of years. Nowadays, it appears that Americans are moving on from quinoa. Looking at Google Trends Data, the term ‘quinoa’ has plummeted in popularity, only occasionally spiking around the time people start taking on New Year’s resolutions. 

The rise of the cake pop era really began when an image of some made by Angie Dudley, also known as Bakerella, went viral after being posted on a cupcake website. She was then invited to teach Martha Stewart how to make the bite-size treat in 2008, and the world subsequently went crazy. And the cake pop only grew in popularity as the decade turned. 

A cake pop is made from a crumbed-up cake, mixed with frosting, and formed into a ball. It’s then coated with melted almond bark or melted chocolate, sometimes incorporating fondant decorations along the way. It’s a treat that takes a number of steps, ingredients, and a lot of diligence to make. As people have realized just how hard they are to make, the trend has fizzled out.

According to Google Trends Data, Cake Pops saw a huge spike in people’s search histories in 2011, and stabilized a little through the beginning of 2013. Since then, however, the term has experienced a steady decline. The cake pop still lives on, most notably at Starbucks, but it’s certainly no longer the wedding or birthday party sensation it once was.

Keep watching the video to find out more about food trends from this past decade we’ve already forgotten about.

    You know. I think that nuttela is more expensive in America cause you can get a regular jar in Britan for as little as 80p at least where I’m from.
