SAN FRANCISCO — Sriracha, mint and better-for-you snacks and beverages top the list of trends spotted at the Winter Fancy Food Show, held Jan. 19-21 in San Francisco.

A panel of food media and industry experts identified five key themes after reviewing thousands of products from more than 1,350 specialty food producers.

“These trends capture the creativity of specialty food producers, and the care they put into crafting exciting taste experiences, whether they are reinventing familiar products with unexpected flavors or opening an audience to lesser-known ingredients,” said Denise Purcell, senior director of content for the Specialty Food Association, and one of this year's trendspotters.
