2016 has given us an awful lot and not all of it has been great, so here are 10 food trends that we should probably leave in the year gone to make room for new and exciting things in 2017.
1. Matcha Flavoured Everything
We get it, green tea is good for you, matcha is packed with benifits, but putting in absolutely everything doesn’t make it all healthy. Please stop.
Maybe it’s just my lack of sweet tooth but just looking at a freak shake makes me feel ill, it’s just too much going on.
Pizza, waffles, mac ‘n cheese, ramen noodles, doughnuts, sushi, tacos, really where do we draw the line?! Enough.
I love a good sharing concept but please stop serving dishes with three portions for two or four people, why can there be as many portions as there are people, what happened to a standard four?!
Yet again, something good for you that goes too far. Not everything needs to be black.
We get it. Lotus biscuits are great but for the love of all things sweet can we move on please.
I love this pseudo-grain, don’t get me wrong, it’s a great gluten-free alternative and packed with protien but does it need to be in everything? The couscous fad died the same way, let’s not do it again.
Yes they may look totally Instagramable but come on, lets me honest they do no actually work. It’s like buying jeans with rips in them, what are you paying for, surely the reason you order a jame doughnut or a chicken kiev is so that it comes ready filled, I’m over the DIY thing, leave the pipettes in the school science lab.
Not everything needs to be frozen, it’s cool to watch yes but does that mean we have to do it to everything from ice cream to cheetos, I don’t think so.
Ohhh so clever. No. Enough.
