What do you have against the cock sauce?

This is true, those Tolkien cookbooks were getting annoying.

Jell-O Shots

I don't think I've ever seen anyone doing these outside of a frat party.

Ah, Buzzfeed. So hip, so happening, so in your face. If only everyone could be that cool.

The gluten fad has got to go. Definitely.

I'm also tired of cupcakes, and I wish there were fewer Mexican-themed restaurants (not because I don't like Mexican, just that I would like more variety in casual dining.

You go to hell, subby. You go to hell, and you die!

If only there were a way that someone tired of cupcakes could escape them. If. Only. There. Were. A. Way.

Wow. Now that I RTFA, the writer can go to hell and die too. Just because you don't enjoy food as much as the rest of us doesn't mean you have to get all butthurt about it. Don't worry... the Olive garden still serves your bottomless bowl of Italian Wedding Soup.

Replacing the gluten in cupcakes with sriracha?  Brilliant!

I will not rest until Cupcake Wars is no longer broadcast and Joe Biden is Guy Fieri's sidekick on Triple D.

AverageAmericanGuy: The gluten fad has got to go. Definitely.


Another example of stupidity in America.

Someone presses for gluten-free foods for people celiac disease. Products start putting "gluten-free" on traditionally wheat-based products to alert those people. Stupid people start thinking that gluten is bad for you and start buying everything that's marked "gluten-free," while telling everyone around them that gluten kills anyone and everyone around them.

Now we're to the point that marketers are labeling non-wheat products "gluten-free" in order to imply that their competition hates you, wants to kill you, and uses that gluten stuff in their product. The result is a mom buying Brand X rice products, baking powder, or whatever, because it's marked "gluten-free" and Brand Y isn't.

Bacon's not on the list? Bacon is utterly played out. How about going back to a couple of slices with breakfast occasionally? Denny's Baconalia was the tipping point.

I don't think the author was advocating the end of sriracha, just the end of sriracha as a trend.

In my opinion, the rising problem people are having with gluten is the rise of genetically modified gluten. Stick to oatmeal, folks. Oatmeal is impossible to genetically modify.

If I wanted every single thing Ieat and drink to taste like campfire, I would just carry around a little bundle of burned twigs to gnaw on.

Is this satire?

Nonetheless, the author deserves our scorn. More sriracha is for sure the future. I'm not equating sriracha to marriage equality per se, but sriracha is wildly popular amongst youth, at least here in California so that's the way the future will play out.

Need to change the headline

"Eleven food trends that need to go away in 2013, like this sudden desire to put sriracha on everythingthat are so totally overrated."

Sriracha has its place, but it isn't on everything.  A well stocked hot sauce collection is key to avoiding bland food at all times.  Sriracha for Asian food, El Yucateco salsa Kutbil-ik De and Marie Sharp's Belizean Heat for Mexican/Latin, Gator Hammock Gator Sauce and Texas Pete for general purpose use and mixing with instant ramen, etc.

I can't go along with his pickle hate either, pickled stuff is great.

Kevin72: In my opinion, the rising problem people are having with gluten is the rise of genetically modified gluten. Stick to oatmeal, folks. Oatmeal is impossible to genetically modify.


In my opinion, the rising problem with people having gluten is mass hysteria and hypochondria coupled with increased awareness.

And there is no way that oats cannot be modified. Also, gluten intolerant people can't eat oats either.

A perfectly good food (sriracha, pickles) can be a highly annoying food trend. Don't mix the two up.

There are at least two known strains of GMO oats. Neither have been approved, but the work has been done. Salt tolerance and viral resistance are the traits I've found added so far.

Why does she act as if Jello shots are some new fad?  Jello shots have been around since I was a teenager in the 70s.

Things can be around forever and still become a fad or trendy from time to time.

On topic- I have been in love with the red cock since, oh, about 30 years or so now, but, El Pato green has a more flavourful taste for many things. I still use Sriracha on quite a few things, but I do wish it had more flavour, and  was more fluidic.
For those of you who dont know- it has the consitency of toothpaste.

I've never been a fan of Sriracha but I do love a good green hotsauce (jalapeno or habanero). I'm not sure why but to me green sauce just tastes better.

That's just a new twist on something old.  When I was a kid we used to put Kool-aid in ice cube trays with toothpicks and make popsicles out of them. Then when I had kids they had plastic containers shaped like popsicles with their own plastic stick.  Nothing new, just a new twist on the same old idea.

They can't go away until we find something to replace them.

This coming year, I hope you like donuts and fried chicken.

You are one of the worst people on this website to try to have a discussion with. Just because you're unaware that something is a trend doesn't mean it's not a trend.

On the other hand, ignorant people often dismiss something of value as "trendy" just because they hear more than two people mention it in a week.

Coffee is a good example. The quality and availability of boutique coffee has risen spectacularly in the last 5-10 years. People are learning to appreciate coffee in a way that wasn't really possible before. Is it becoming a trend? Certainly. Is it a silly fad? Hell no. American interest in 3rd wave coffee is transforming the economies of entire nations. The more people that become educated enough to differentiate and appreciate the complexities that coffee has to offer, the more 3rd world farmers can feed their families growing a really amazing product, instead having to grow bulk crap for Folgers for a fraction of the profit.

Of course, there are always people who are resistant to change, and will stubbornly insist that a cup of coffee should cost less than a dollar and taste like roasted ass, because that's the only thing they know. If it weren't for trends, nobody would ever find out about anything that's not on a TV commercial. Trends that start with a few people who are in the know are at least preferable to trends that are cooked up and astroturfed by national-level corporate marketing groups. And if being able to drink natural-sundried Geisha from Yirgicheffe that tastes like farking blueberry pie means I have to listen to a couple of hipster douchebags argue french press vs. pour over, then fine. It's worth it.

Just because you are aware that something is a trend, doesn't make it an annoying trend that needs to go away.

How do those people compare with the people who say "I'm unaware of a spike in interest in this thing, therefore it cannot possibly be a trend"? ;)

No. I'm saying it's one of those things that's been around forever. You may as well call T-shirts "trendy".

you mean down from its peak in 2011ish. regardless, they never were "untrendy" in the first place.

I don't even care about jello shots. I just hate articles like this.
