Did You Know About These Amazing Innovative Food and Drink Products Launched Across the Globe?

Explore the Latest Launches in the Food and Beverage Industry!

If you think you’ve seen it all when it comes to your culinary choice, think again. We, humans, are fearless food warriors who rarely shy away from innovative food and drink products. Be it unexpected flavor combinations or downright eccentric creations, we love to explore products that raise eyebrows. 

Don’t believe us? We submit sushi in our argument! When it came around for the first time, a raw fish with an unfamiliar taste and texture was distasteful to many Western palates. But we embraced uncooked seafood with open chopsticks; today, it’s a staple in many diets.

Today, with the impact of social media, bizarre food innovations get even more popular. So if you’re also a food daredevil, let’s push those taste boundaries further.

Here, we have listed the latest innovative food and drink products that are taking the world by storm (or taste buds). Get ready to have your food senses tickled and your sense of normalcy questioned.

Top 5 Exciting Launches in the Food and Beverage Industry

Grillo's Pickles and J.P. Licks’ Pickle-Flavored Ice Cream

Brace yourselves, ladies and gentlemen, as we introduce you to one of the most innovative food and drink products — pickle-flavored ice cream. Yes, you read that right!

While pickles are loved for their tangy, briny taste, ice cream blesses us taste buds with sweet and creamy flavors. However, no one could think of combining these two contrasting flavor profiles until Boston’s Grillo's Pickles and J.P. Licks - the iconic ice cream brand - collaborated. 

Pickle-flavored ice cream sounds like a peculiar and unexpected combination, but it promises a rollercoaster ride of flavors on the palate. Pickles' tanginess and saltiness complement ice cream's sweetness and chilliness. It leaves you with an intriguing taste sensation.

If you’re feeling adventurous, give pickle-flavored ice cream a try. Who knows — you might enjoy the unconventional pickle-infused frozen bliss.

Chirps Cricket Chips & Cookies

How does the idea of snacking on insects sound to you? Not appetizing? Well, Chirps, a California-based insect-protein-based sustainable food brand, has a different opinion. 

Chirps sell chips and cookies. But they aren’t your regular potato crisps or butter cookies. Instead, they are made with edible crickets.

Why this conventional and unique food product idea, you may ask?

Well, crickets are a rich protein source. They are packed with sustainable protein, prebiotics, B12, iron, calcium, fiber, and amino acids. Also, they are good for the planet. In comparison to other livestock, they require fewer natural resources and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions.

If you’re worried about the taste, they only add a mild nutty, and slightly earthy taste to chips and cookies. And if this food innovation idea feels way too ahead of time, know that 2.5 billion people worldwide already eat insects.

Rogue Ales & Spirits' Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale

We all are fans of the beer that contains our everyday breakfast cereals - barley, wheat, rice, corn, oats, or rye. But how do you feel about the unlikely combination of bacon, maple, and doughnut flavors in your beer? 

Rogue Ales & Spirits' Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale is an example of brave innovation in the food and beverage industry. It has a smoky essence of bacon which intertwines with the sweet taste of maple syrup, all enhanced by the familiar notes of a freshly baked doughnut. This offbeat ale is a limited edition release and a must-try for people who relish unique and rare beer experiences.
