Ethnic flavors continue to be very popular in snack seasoning trends. We anticipate seeing the popularity of the pepper continue well into 2014. We’re no longer talking about just ancho and jalapeno, as peppers like hatch, datil, aleppo, and mini purple move into the mainstream.
Our R&D team is constantly developing new combinations to stay ahead of these trends.
Hatch Green Chili & Cheese – a New Mexican roasted, mild green chili compliments creamy cheddar cheese
Aleppo Pepper – a chili of complex flavor and mild heat, originating in the Middle East, builds slowly in this rub, allowing the other flavors to come forward
Hatch Carnitas – warm roasted flavors, combined with cumin and chili, create an exceptional rub for poultry or pork
Non-GMO Za’tar – this snack seasoning boasts an herby and bright flavor with sumac notes and sweetness from basil
Integrating unique ingredients into current flavor profiles is a great way to highlight ethnic tastes and give customers new and exciting flavors. How are you taking advantage of specific cuisines and flavor trends?
