What they told us: Consumers want to sample—and share through social media—new foods and flavors from other regions, both domestic and international but in a form that’s recognizable, comforting and, often, communal. Soups & stews, grilled cheeses, global wings and international BBQ top this year’s trends list, along with integrating social media into menu marketing. Beverages that boost energy and health are on trend, while botanical cocktails star at the bar.
