Keeping up with new food trends via bingo!
Last year, innovators in the food industry introduced the world to sriracha flavored foods, cronuts, waffle sandwiches, cupcakes and pretzel buns. A concern among the foodies was be what trends would actually prosper in, 2014?
The quickest and simplest way to learn about the food crazes this year is through bingo. It’s been used as an educational tool in classroom teaching, which teachers have utilized it across the globe for game-based learning. The lottery-style game has also been associated with lifestyle organization. In addition to players being able to reach out to each other through online bingo chatrooms, they are also given chances to engage in new experiences with opportunities like Fly Foxy, an event sponsored by foxybingo which provided players with all-expenses-paid trips to a host of luxurious destinations. Given the above, bingo is an appropriate method for exploring the different styles of food this 2014.
Forbes recently listed some of the food trends that are already mesmerising the restaurant industry and restaurant patrons, including locally sourcing all ingredients, healthier kids’ meals, artisanal pizzas, and umami flavoring. Numerous dining facilities have already caught on to these food trends so those would be more than fitting as items on your customized bingo card. The other 2014 fads listed on the online magazine are gluten-free options, vegetarian/vegan, instant ice cream, nuts, chicken wings, more mash-up dishes, and biscuit sandwiches.
Another trend listed is upscale comfort food, a trend that sees the simplest comfort food with a gourmet twist to it. Andrew Freeman, a San Francisco hospitality consultant says that “highbrow versions of classic comfort foods are popping up all over menus, from appetizers to dessert”. Who couldn’t take pleasure in a bowl of gourmet Mac and cheese or a fancy twist on chicken noodle soup?
Other food fads are bound to take the world by storm this year, so just keep a lookout for them. Once your bingo card is full, you are ready to explore new restaurants with 2014 Food Trend Bingo.
