2013 was a year of many events, some impressive, some downright sad, some dramatic: the world lost Nelson Mandela, saw Miley Cyrus go crazy at the VMA’s and witnessed the birth of a new prince. An eventful year on every level, 2013 also brought about some new food crazes. People embraced them with open arms and began including them in their diet.
Many were talking about them and many knew that they’re the cool things to eat. So which are these famous food crazes of 2013?
Food Crazes of 2013
Once just an ordinary veggie, now the queen of vegetables. 2013 made kale one of its food crazes, as celebrities and doctors praised the wonder veggie for its health benefits. It’s been used in smoothies, as is, in pizza, pastas and even chips!
Health-concerned people absolutely loved this grain for its protein rich qualities. What’s more, it can be used in many different dishes. To underline the importance of this food craze, 2013 was declared International Year of Quinoa by the United Nations.
#3. Ramen Burger
Created by Keizo Shimamoto, the blogger behind Go Rame, for a New York food fair, the Ramen burger has become one of the year’s food crazes. The typical beef paddy is nestled between two lightly fried buns made of ramen noodles.
#4. The Cronut
Arguably the biggest food craze of 2013, the Cronut was concocted by chef Dominique Ansel and it’s a crossover between a croissant and a donut. The pastry took the US by storm!
#5. The Crookie
Another hybrid makes the list of this year’s food crazes. A combination between the soft and flaky croissant dough and Oreos invented in Toronto, The Crookie makes for an interesting dessert.
