Beautiful Day Arrives -Food Trend

Some trends worked , others just faded with time. 
Either because people lost interest, or the marketing campaigns weakened, or the trends proved useless.
Call these trends:  fad. Call them a mode,a  fool's notion, or just a mere frivolity.

 And perhaps later, call them traditional , old or even no longer contemporary! 
 Whether these vogues are  fashion in cloth, shoes, gadgets, decor, accessories, or even food!!! One has to admit that he or she had atleast tried them before they  dwindled from the market.

The recent expectation  in 2008 for Food trends were launched by innovadatabase. Let us see if they will continue growing in the upcoming years! Or they will become a mere "fad" that wont last long .
