Cue drooling

With different food trends emerging every week, it’s hard to keep up! We reveal what you’ll be eating and sipping on this season.

POPS

Drinking has never been so fun! Pops are newest alcohol trend that we have been hanging out for Down Under! These premium ice popsicles are made in the UK using all-natural ingredients and launched in 2014 with the Classic, the world’s first champagne ice popsicle. Last year, they added three new products to the range, including two alcohol-free products that are suitable for every member of the family.

These alco-pops have quickly become the must-have product to keep you refreshed through the summer and this December Aussies will finally get a taste of the latest trend. The Classic Pop is equivalent to half a glass of champagne, is gluten-free and only 38 calories! December could not come fast enough!

POKÉ BOWLS

No, this is not a Pokémon-related meal. Poké (po-kay) is actually a simple and addictive Hawaiian dish that has been around for centuries, made of cubed and soy-marinated raw fish eaten over a bowl of rice. Recently, trendy New York and Los Angeles restaurants have put a new spin on the bowls, incorporating ingredients such as quinoa, tofu, chicken and beef, as well as traditional protein favourites salmon, tuna and swordfish.

And now this trend has finally reached Australian shores! The Ole Group (the minds behind Mucho Mexicano and Ole Restaurant) is bringing Suki (Brisbane’s first poké bowl and sushi burrito bar) to South Bank later this month.

COLOURFUL CUISINE

All our food and drinks are starting to appear in every colour of the rainbow. From pink pitaya bowls and black charcoal burger buns to yellow turmeric flavouring and red velvet lattes, the latest trend also offers many health benefits! One of the exciting trends on its way is purple bread.

Scientifically- created, this bread is digested 20 per cent slower than regular white bread to reduce sugar spikes after eating. The purple bread is pumped up with antioxidants extracted from black rice, and is being hailed as the first baked superfood.

FROSÉ

If you haven’t heard of the biggest trend to hit the bars this season, then it’s time to get excited for possibly the best fruity cocktail ever. Frosé (a frozen rosé slushie) has quickly become a summer cocktail list favourite, as it is the perfect beverage to cool you down on those balmy Brisbane nights. Looking to get a frosé fix in Brisbane? Darling & Co host Lobster & Frosé Sundays where you can enjoy a succulent lobster roll and delicious frosé for only $16. Good news is this special is available ALL DAY!
