Looking Back at 2019
"Flavor development is being led by the search for something new, different and exciting, according to a report from Innova Market Insights.

Two out of three respondents to a survey conducted by the market researcher said they love to discover new flavors.
'An example of a chocolate bar that might appeal to this group is a barbecue potato chip 70% dark chocolate bar,' said Lu Ann Williams, director of insights and innovation at Innova Market Insights. 'That represents this whole idea of flavor excitement.'"
