Is Glow-in-the-Dark the Next Food Trend? Meet the GLO-NUT
According to one of Mintel’s 2016 Global Food and Drink Trends, there is an emerging opportunity for brands to innovate using visual appeal versus traditional flavor line extensions in response to a more visually-oriented society that is spending more time on social media platforms.
Black Star Pastry bakery is capitalizing on this trend with their latest creation—the GLO-NUT.
Taking the galactic and fanciful food trend to a whole new level, these glow-in-the-dark doughnuts are crafted from all-natural ingredients and now joins the Unicorn Frappuccino and Rainbow bagel as one of the colorful creations to break the internet through its Instagram sensation.
Free-from artificial dyes, GLO-NUTs exemplify the radiant beauty (literally) and power of natural ingredients.
Just because a food or drink is visually appealing does NOT mean it’s artificially colored. Today’s natural color solutions can go head-to-head with the bright and vivid colors of synthetic dyes. In fact, with the bounty of available natural color sources, there are many more colors in our crayon boxes today than compared to the short list of seven FD&C colors. Shade possibilities are really endless.
