Dream Dinners Franchise Reviews Why Americans Craving Foods with Bolder Flavors

Long gone are the days of boring and bland meals. Today, more than ever, families are looking to treat themselves with diverse and mouthwatering flavors. As America continues to diversify, so does the general population’s palate, and restaurants and eating establishments are trying to respond with bolder items. When polled, 37 percent of American’s said they are looking for variety in flavor profile and are willing to try new flavors in their food.  According to reports American’s are almost evenly split in their flavor preferences:

  • 67 percent found savory flavors appealing
  • 52 percent found spicy flavors appealing
  • 52 percent found smoky flavors appealing
  • 51 percent found sweet flavors appealing
  • 48 percent found tangy flavors appealing

As Americans become more and more willing to try foods that contain more flavorful ingredients, Dream Dinners franchise reviews this consumer eating trend and how it has the power to change our nation’s eating habits for the better.

Trending Toward Bolder Cuisine
Consumer reporting shows an increased desire for foods that are heavily infused with a variety of spices and diverse flavor profiles.

Sarah V. Kirkmeyer, PhD, and director of sensory for North America at Givaudan Flavors Corp., reiterated this rising trend suggesting  “as the American palette has evolved and become more accustomed to a wider variety of spices and flavors, consumers are ready for and desiring more ethnic foods.”

Not only is ethic food demand on the rise, but consumers are also beginning to request hot and spicy flavors. A  study by Technomic also found that, for the first time, the majority of consumers – 54 percent – reported that they enjoy consuming hot and spicy flavors, 6 percent higher than in 2013.

Not only does consuming ethnic foods broaden an individual’s horizon to the food options that people in other countries across the globe consume, but there are also health benefits to eating foods with various spices.

This food trend has the potential to rid many children of their picky eating habits. Studies show that families who eat regular, in home family meals are more likely to be adventurous in their eating and try new ingredients. Introducing bolder flavors to your children while eating together around the dinner table may have the potential to broaden their eating habits even more.
