Trends seen throughout the year will remain with many traditional offerings being reinvigorated. Orange has long been a classic autumn flavour, but the trend is taking a deeper hold in light of the citrus-crazy summer.
It is no single orange or citrus profile, with consumers seeking variation from Valencia to Yuzu. It's has a great potential in citrus as it is well suited to products that aim to impress consumers with natural, fruity freshness.
Chai, ginger, cardamom, pumpkin spice, cloves and cinnamon, also is making headways in the marketing. This flavours appeal to the 27% of 18- to 34-year-old consumers who told that they’d like to see more beverages and bakery with ethnic flavours on the menu.
The traditional autumnal flavours will remain popular, while other trends seen throughout 2019, including botanicals and citrus, will roll into the new season.
Traditional flavours, including pumpkin spice, will continue to be an on-trend choice. The gingerbread, caramel, pumpkin, rosemary and cinnamon are all classic autumn tonalities. There will always be a place for classic profiles as they remind us of times gone by, like moments shared with family when we were younger.
The appeal of classic ingredients is driven by consumers seeking a means of escape from the hectic pace of life through an indulgent snack. Chocolate flavours are ideal for this, with other dessert flavours such as cookies and cream, strawberry cheesecake and tiramisu also proving popular.
