Pumpkin Spice Flax Crunchy Granola Bar Kashi

Even though Halloween is over, consumers still aren’t bored with pumpkin-flavored foods and beverages yet, according to analytics expert Anil Kaul, Ph.D. Dr. Kaul is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Absolutdata, a market intelligence firm that tracks the rise and fall of popular flavors.

“If a flavor is available year-round, people get tired of it (faster),” he said. “I think the positive thing about pumpkin spice is that this is a flavor that is associated with fall and every year people look forward to it. In a way it becomes a ritual for a lot of people.”

New and interesting innovations featuring the flavor are fueling the pumpkin spice trend. Check out these Made With Honey products that use pumpkin.

Caveman Diet Makes it Out of Stone Age

Caveman Diet Makes it Out of Stone Age

The Paleo diet is becoming increasingly popular, and marketers shouldn’t ignore its potential. Those that follow this so-called “caveman” diet are an important source of innovation to food manufacturers.

“They’re a relatively small group of people, but we think they are indicative of larger consumer values,” said Jenna Blumenfeld, senior food editor for New Hope Natural Media. “A lot of retailers have special sections in their stores that cater just to gluten-free or vegan eaters. We love to research food tribes because it goes beyond what we eat. It’s also about your identity.”

Consumers that are dedicated to the Paleo lifestyle prioritize whole, unprocessed foods that go back to how humans ate more than 10,000 years ago. Honey is considered part of the Paleo diet because it is a whole food and was available in Paleolithic times.

Check out these Paleo products that are Made With Honey!
