Avocados Are Out, Pickles Are In

Millennials have loved avocados for the past few years, but it would appear that pickles are starting to become the go-to choice for green food portions.

Like all trends, they come, they go. Avocado has been the go-to fruit of choice for young people to spread on toast, sandwiches, and all sorts of other uses. It became so wildly popular in such a short amount of time, the price was driven up, and there was even a shortage.

But it looks like the interest in avocado has been dwindling in recent months. WHat’s here to replace it? Pickles are making a comeback. I truly never thought I’d be writing about pickles, but here it is. But to be totally honest, it’s not just the pickle that’s coming back, it’s more of the pickle flavor. Pickle is starting to be made into things, like mints, soda, popcorn, ice cream – all sorts of things. Some nightclubs are even stocking pickle juice to mix in with drinks.

It’s not just your conventional pickle either. A pickle as we know it is just a cucumber pickled in a brine of water, vinegar, salt, and sugar. The trend is actually going towards pickling other things, like fruits. Oranges, peaches, mangos, etc. I do like a decent pickle now and then, on a burger or even by itself with a sandwich. I don’t know if I can get behind a sudden “pickle everything” movement. Food trends come and go faster than most other trends anyway, so I wonder how long it will last. Remember the pink trend from last year? Yeah, we barely do either. Source.
