Instagram-waardige kos is 'n neiging wat die 2010's sal definieer


istock.com/TARIK KIZILKAYA

Dit is moeilik om na te dink oor hoe die 2010's in stereotipes sal word as die dekade skaars in ons truspieël is. Maar dink aan die 1980's: dit moes meer gewees het as neon-gekleurde leotards, Ecto Cooler, Madonna en PacMan, nie waar nie? Tog is dit al wat ons onthou as ons 'n 80's-tema hou. As dit kom by die neigings, veral die voedseltendense, wat die 2010's sal definieer, val een uit die pak: Instagram-waardige geregte.

Die enigste restaurant wat u in elke staat moet besoek

Die aanbieding van kos bereik sy hoogtepunt, nie net vir sjefs nie, maar ook vir die alledaagse persoon en wannabe -beïnvloeder in die 2010's. Gaan na die beste restaurante in die omtrek, en voordat mense in hul maaltye duik, slaan hulle hul slimfone uit en neem 'n vinnige foto vir die 'Gram'. Dit is nie eens buitengewoon ongewoon om te sien hoe iemand hul bord na 'n nabygeleë venster neem of 'n draagbare lig by 'n gegewe eetplek uitsweep om die beste moontlike beligting vir hul momentopname te kry nie.

As u kyk na die gewildste geregte van die dekade en die kos wat op die kookkuns ontplof het, lyk dit asof hulle almal hierdie fotografiese kwaliteit het. Avokadobroodjies, smoothiebakkies, bakke, milkshakes bedek met koekskywe en lekkergoed en wilde mashup -geregte soos ramenburgers, okkerneute of sushi -burrito's, het almal 'n mooi of bisarre estetika wat net smeek om met die wêreld gedeel te word.

As u na 'n troue gegaan het en daar 'n naakte koek was wat u nie afgeneem het nie, het u dan ook ooit gegaan?

Oor 20 jaar of so, as ons kinders en kleinkinders 'n partytjie met 'n tema van 2010 hou vir hul kollegas, en hulle vra u watter kosse hulle moet eet, maak seker dat hulle White Claw, kombucha, springmielies met 'n piekel, eetbare koekies het deeg en, natuurlik, hoe 'n kameratelefoon ook al in die toekoms lyk. Dit is immers net 'n paar van die grootste en gekste voedselneigings van die 2010's.


Dit is die mees ikoniese Amerikaanse kos uit elke dekade

Dit is moeilik om te glo dat daar tyd was dat slaaie op gelatien 'n gewilde maaltyd was, maar dit is waar.

Baie kosse wat ons nou as vreemd beskou, was eens steunpilare in die Amerikaanse dieet.

Ons het met voedselhistorikus en skrywer van "Food in America", Andrew F. Smith, gesels en 'n paar van ons eie navorsing gedoen om die kosse te vind wat die afgelope 11 dekades ikonies was.

Hou aan om te blaai om 'n paar van die kosse te sien wat die afgelope 100 jaar gedefinieer het.

1910's: Cracker Jack

Volgens Smith was Cracker Jack die eerste kommersiële peuselkos. Die met karamel bedekte springmielies en grondboontjiebottermengsel is in 1896 bekendgestel, en teen 1916 was dit die grootste verkoopkos ter wêreld.

1920's: lekkergoedstawe

Die 1920's het 'n verbod tot gevolg, maar dit het ook die koms van Mars Company veroorsaak, volgens Smith. Die onderneming is in 1922 gestig en het die Melkweg in 1923 geskep. Daarna het Snickers ontstaan ​​- wat sedertdien die gewildste snoepbeker in die VSA gebly het - en Three Musketeers in die vroeë dertigerjare.

Ander lekkergoedstawe wat gedurende die 20's uitgevind is, sluit in Butterfinger, Heuwels, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Mr. Goodbar en Babe Ruth.

1930's: Versteekte slaaie en bakkies

Die Groot Depressie het die manier waarop vroue kook, verander. Omdat baie vroue gedurende hierdie tyd werk gehad het, het doeltreffendheid 'n belangrike prioriteit in die kombuis geword. Kasserolle - soos groenboontjies en tuna -noedels - was maklik om voor te berei en het gedien as 'n kreatiewe manier om allerhande oorskiet in 'n nuwe maaltyd te herbou.

Gelatien het gedurende die dertigerjare 'n gewilde basis geword vir baie etes, danksy die feit dat dit 'n goeie, maar goedkoop, proteïenbron was. Volgens die "The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America" ​​was byna 'n derde van alle kookboekresepte uit hierdie tydperk op gelatien gebaseer. Maaltye bestaan ​​dikwels uit ringe gelatien rondom 'n stukkie willekeurige vrugte, groente, eiers, olywe en meer.

1940's: Bevrore lemoensap

Smith sê dat bevrore kos na die Tweede Wêreldoorlog geëindig het. Voor hierdie tydperk het die yskaste nie vrieskaste gehad wat groot genoeg was om baie te stoor nie.

In 1946 het 'n man met die naam Jack Fox die onderneming Minute Maid geskep, volgens Smith. Minute Maid het die eerste keer bevrore lemoensapkonsentraat vervaardig. Hierdie ingemaakte alternatief was goedkoop, het lank geduur, en met die toevoeging van net water kon verbruikers binne enkele minute lemoensap kry.

1950's: TV -etes

C.A. Swanson Co begin TV -etes in 1950. Die bevrore maaltye bevat kalkoen, en later hoender en beesvleis, wat slegs 'n kort oondtyd benodig het voordat dit gereed was. Die etes het vinnig gevang. Volgens Smith het Swanson in 1956 altesaam 13 miljoen TV -etes verkoop.

Smith sê die maaltye is gemaak volgens maaltye van die lugdiens, wat in aluminiumbakkies bedien is, sodat hulle verhit en vinnig bedien kon word. Die etes het ook saamgeval met die toenemende gewildheid van TV, vandaar die naam.

1960's: Beef Wellington

Volgens Smith het hierdie uitspattige gereg van beesvleis bedek met foie gras of sampioene en in blaardeeg gebak, 'n gewilde partytjieprys geword in die 60's. Dit was 'n bewys dat die gasvrou wat dit bedien, 'n hoë klas was.

Ondanks die feit dat baie mense dink die gereg is vernoem na 'n Engelse hertog, was die resep baie gewilder in Amerika as in Engeland. Dit is selfs in 1968 in die "White House Cookbook" verskyn.

1970's: Smoothies

Alhoewel smoothies gedurende die dertigerjare uitgevind is (toe die blender die eerste keer uitgekom het), sê Smith dat smoothies eers in die 70's aansienlik gewild geword het. Vegetariërs het vroeër, in die 60's, die neiging aangepak, maar die vrugtige, gemengde drank het nie 'n groot aantrekkingskrag gekry voordat dit in die sewentigerjare in die winkelsentrums geraak het nie. Smoothies het toe in die vroeë 2000's 'n terugkeer gekry.

1980's: Jell-O Pudding Pops

Saam met die popularisering van die term "trooskos", het die 80's 'n styging in soet snacks soos Jell-O Pudding Pops. Die pops is geadverteer as 'bevrore poeding op 'n stokkie' wat gemaak is met 60% afgeroomde melk.

Bill Cosby was die gesig en stem agter hierdie bevrore snack, wat tot ontsteltenis van talle mense in die 90's gestaak is (hoewel Popsicle hulle in 2004 teruggebring het). Nog 'n soet happie wat die 80's gemerk het, was Fruit Roll Ups.

1990's: Middagete

Elke skoolkind se droommiddagete, Lunchables was 'n selfgemaakte middagete wat u in staat gestel het om u eie pizza te bou of net 'n paar klappers en kaas te geniet. Die pakkette bevat bestanddele van gewilde handelsmerke, soos gerasperde Kraftkaas (Lunchables is vervaardig deur Kraft Heinz) en Ritz -krakers.

Afgesien van die feit dat hulle grootliks uit sterk verwerkte voedsel bestaan, het Lunchables besige ouers 'n manier gegee om hul kind 'n bruinsakmiddagete te pak.

2000's: Kolwyntjies

Cupcakes bestaan ​​al 'n rukkie, maar eers in die eerste dekade van die 2000's het die nagereg 'n ware toename in gewildheid beleef. Sprinkles, een van die eerste kolwyntjie-bakkerye, is in 2005 in Beverly Hills geopen. Vier jaar later begin Baked By Melissa die lekker, happiegrootte kolwyntjies waarvoor hulle nou bekend is. Dieselfde jaar word die eerste episode van "Cupcake Wars" uitgesaai, 'n werklikheidsprogram vir bakkompetisies waarin deelnemers meeding om die beste kolwyntjie te maak.

2010's: Boerenkool

Die afgelope paar jaar is gekenmerk deur 'n aantal gesondheidsvoertendense, insluitend 'n verskuiwing na slaaie en bakke wat op graan gebaseer is. Hierdie verskuiwing, sowel as 'n toename in gewildheid op boeremarkte en die vars produkte wat daar aangetref word, het daartoe gelei dat boerenkool as die gesondheidsvoedsel van die oomblik is. Kale Caesar -slaaie het algemeen geword in baie restaurante se spyskaarte, en mense het begin om hemde te dra wat versier is met 'boerenkool' of 'eet meer boerenkool'.

Die pakkette bevat bestanddele van gewilde handelsmerke, soos gerasperde Kraftkaas (Lunchables is vervaardig deur Kraft Heinz) en Ritz -krakers.

Afgesien van die feit dat hulle grootliks uit swaar verwerkte voedsel bestaan, het Lunchables besige ouers 'n manier gegee om 'n middagete met 'n bruinsak vir hul kind te pak.

Kolwyntjies bestaan ​​al 'n rukkie, maar eers in die eerste dekade van die 2000's het die nagereg 'n ware toename in gewildheid beleef. Sprinkles, een van die eerste kolwyntjie-bakkerye, is in 2005 in Beverly Hills geopen. Vier jaar later begin Baked By Melissa die lekker, happiegrootte kolwyntjies waarvoor hulle nou bekend is. Dieselfde jaar word die eerste episode van "Cupcake Wars" uitgesaai, 'n werklikheidsprogram vir bakkompetisies waarin deelnemers meeding om die beste kolwyntjie te maak.

2010's: Boerenkool

Die afgelope paar jaar is gekenmerk deur 'n aantal gesondheidsvoertendense, insluitend 'n verskuiwing na slaaie en bakke wat op graan gebaseer is. Hierdie verskuiwing, sowel as 'n toename in gewildheid op boeremarkte en die vars produkte wat daar gevind word, het daartoe gelei dat boerenkool as die gesondheidsvoedsel van die oomblik is. Kale Caesar -slaaie het algemeen geword in baie restaurante se spyskaarte, en mense het begin om hemde te dra met 'boerenkool' of 'eet meer boerenkool'.

Dit is die mees ikoniese Amerikaanse kos uit elke dekade

Dit is moeilik om te glo dat daar tyd was dat slaaie op gelatien 'n gewilde maaltyd was, maar dit is waar.

Baie kosse wat ons nou as vreemd beskou, was eens steunpilare in die Amerikaanse dieet.

Ons het met voedselhistorikus en skrywer van "Food in America", Andrew F. Smith, gesels en 'n paar van ons eie navorsing gedoen om die kosse te vind wat die afgelope 11 dekades ikonies was.

Hou aan om te blaai om 'n paar van die kosse te sien wat die afgelope 100 jaar gedefinieer het.

1910's: Cracker Jack

Volgens Smith was Cracker Jack die eerste kommersiële peuselkos. Die met karamel bedekte springmielies en grondboontjiebottermengsel is in 1896 bekendgestel, en teen 1916 was dit die grootste verkoopkos ter wêreld.

1920's: Lekkergoedstawe

Die 1920's het 'n verbod tot gevolg, maar dit het ook die koms van Mars Company veroorsaak, volgens Smith. Die onderneming is in 1922 gestig en het die Melkweg in 1923 geskep. Daarna het Snickers ontstaan ​​- wat sedertdien die gewildste snoepbeker in die VSA gebly het - en Three Musketeers in die vroeë dertigerjare.

Ander lekkergoedstawe wat gedurende die 20's uitgevind is, sluit in Butterfinger, Heuwels, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Mr. Goodbar en Babe Ruth.

1930's: Versteekte slaaie en bakkies

Die Groot Depressie het die manier waarop vroue kook, verander. Omdat baie vroue gedurende hierdie tyd werk gehad het, het doeltreffendheid 'n belangrike prioriteit in die kombuis geword. Kasserolle - soos groenboontjies en tuna -noedels - was maklik om voor te berei en het gedien as 'n kreatiewe manier om allerhande oorskiet in 'n nuwe maaltyd te herbou.

Gelatien het gedurende die dertigerjare 'n gewilde basis geword vir baie etes, danksy die feit dat dit 'n goeie, maar goedkoop, proteïenbron was. Volgens die "The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America" ​​was byna 'n derde van alle kookboekresepte uit hierdie tydperk op gelatien gebaseer. Maaltye bestaan ​​dikwels uit ringe gelatien rondom 'n stukkie willekeurige vrugte, groente, eiers, olywe en meer.

1940's: Bevrore lemoensap

Smith sê dat bevrore kos na die Tweede Wêreldoorlog geëindig het. Voor hierdie tydperk het die yskaste nie vrieskaste gehad wat groot genoeg was om baie te stoor nie.

In 1946 het 'n man met die naam Jack Fox die onderneming Minute Maid geskep, volgens Smith. Minute Maid het die eerste keer bevrore lemoensapkonsentraat vervaardig. Hierdie ingemaakte alternatief was goedkoop, het lank geduur, en met die toevoeging van net water kon verbruikers binne enkele minute lemoensap kry.

1950's: TV -etes

C.A. Swanson Co begin TV -etes in 1950. Die bevrore maaltye bevat kalkoen, en later hoender en beesvleis, wat slegs 'n kort oondtyd benodig het voordat dit gereed was. Die etes het vinnig gevang. Volgens Smith het Swanson in 1956 altesaam 13 miljoen TV -etes verkoop.

Smith sê die maaltye is gemaak volgens maaltye van die lugdiens, wat in aluminiumbakkies bedien is, sodat hulle vinnig verhit en bedien kon word. Die etes het ook saamgeval met die toenemende gewildheid van TV, vandaar die naam.

1960's: Beef Wellington

Volgens Smith het hierdie uitspattige gereg van beesvleis bedek met foie gras of sampioene en in blaardeeg gebak, 'n gewilde partytjieprys geword in die 60's. Dit was 'n bewys dat die gasvrou wat dit bedien, 'n hoë klas was.

Ondanks die feit dat baie mense dink dat die gereg na 'n Engelse hertog vernoem is, was die resep baie gewilder in Amerika as in Engeland. Dit is selfs in 1968 in die "White House Cookbook" verskyn.

1970's: Smoothies

Alhoewel smoothies gedurende die dertigerjare uitgevind is (toe die blender die eerste keer uitgekom het), sê Smith dat smoothies eers in die sewentigerjare baie gewild geword het. Vegetariërs het vroeër, in die 60's, die neiging aangepak, maar die vrugtige, gemengde drank het nie 'n groot aantrekkingskrag gekry voordat dit in die sewentigerjare in die winkelsentrums geraak het nie. Smoothies het toe in die vroeë 2000's 'n terugkeer gekry.

1980's: Jell-O Pudding Pops

Saam met die popularisering van die term "trooskos", het die 80's 'n styging in soet snacks soos Jell-O Pudding Pops. Die pops is geadverteer as 'bevrore poeding op 'n stokkie' wat gemaak is met 60% afgeroomde melk.

Bill Cosby was die gesig en stem agter hierdie bevrore snack, wat tot ontsteltenis van talle mense in die 90's gestaak is (hoewel Popsicle hulle in 2004 teruggebring het). Nog 'n soet happie wat die 80's gemerk het, was Fruit Roll Ups.

1990's: Middagete

Elke skoolkind se droommiddagete, Lunchables was 'n selfgemaakte middagete wat u in staat gestel het om u eie pizza te bou of net 'n paar klappers en kaas te geniet. Die pakkette bevat bestanddele van gewilde handelsmerke, soos gerasperde Kraftkaas (Lunchables is vervaardig deur Kraft Heinz) en Ritz -krakers.

Afgesien van die feit dat hulle grootliks uit sterk verwerkte voedsel bestaan, het Lunchables besige ouers 'n manier gegee om hul kind 'n bruinsakmiddagete te pak.

2000's: Kolwyntjies

Cupcakes bestaan ​​al 'n rukkie, maar eers in die eerste dekade van die 2000's het die nagereg 'n ware toename in gewildheid beleef. Sprinkles, een van die eerste kolwyntjie-bakkerye, is in 2005 in Beverly Hills geopen. Vier jaar later begin Baked By Melissa die lekker, happiegrootte kolwyntjies waarvoor hulle nou bekend is.

2010's: Boerenkool

Die afgelope paar jaar is gekenmerk deur 'n aantal gesondheidsvoertendense, insluitend 'n verskuiwing na slaaie en bakke wat op graan gebaseer is. This shift, as well as an increase in popularity in farmers' markets and the fresh produce found there, has led to kale's reign as the health food of the moment. Kale Caesar salads have become commonplace on many a restaurant menu, and people have taken to wearing shirts emblazoned with "Kale" or "eat more kale."

This is the most iconic American food from every decade

It's hard to believe that there was time when gelatin-based salads were a popular meal, but it's true.

Plenty of foods we now consider weird were once mainstays in the American diet.

We spoke with food historian and author of "Food in America," Andrew F. Smith, and did some of our own research to find the foods that were iconic throughout the last 11 decades.

Keep scrolling to see some of the foods that defined the past 100 years.

1910s: Cracker Jack

According to Smith, Cracker Jack was the first commercial snack food. The caramel-coated popcorn and peanut mix launched in 1896, and by 1916 it was the largest-selling snack food in the world.

1920s: Candy bars

The 1920s brought on Prohibition, but it also brought on the advent of Mars Company, according to Smith. The company was founded in 1922, and created Milky Way in 1923. It went on to create Snickers — which has since remained the most popular candy bar in the US — and Three Musketeers in the early 1930s.

Other candy bars invented during the '20s include Butterfinger, Mounds, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Mr. Goodbar, and Babe Ruth.

1930s: Congealed salads and casseroles

The Great Depression changed the way that women cooked. Because many women had jobs during this time period, efficiency became a main priority in the kitchen. Casseroles — like green bean and tuna noodle — were easy to prepare and served as a creative way to repurpose all kinds of leftovers into a new meal.

Gelatin became a popular foundation of many meals during the 30s thanks to the fact that it was a good, but inexpensive, source of protein. According to the "The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America," close to one third of all cookbook recipes from this time period were gelatin based. Meals often consisted of rings of gelatin surrounding a smattering of random fruits, vegetables, eggs, olives, and more.

1940s: Frozen orange juice

Smith says that frozen food took off after World War II ended. Before this time period, refrigerators didn't have freezers that were large enough to store much of anything.

In 1946, a man named Jack Fox created the company Minute Maid, according to Smith. Minute Maid manufactured the first-ever frozen orange juice concentrate. This canned alternative was cheap, lasted a long time, and with the addition of of just water, consumers could have orange juice in minutes.

1950s: TV dinners

C.A. Swanson Co starting making TV dinners in 1950. The frozen meals featured turkey, and later chicken and beef, that only required a short amount of oven time before it was ready to eat. The dinners caught on quick. According to Smith, in 1956, Swanson sold a total of 13 million TV dinners.

Smith says the meals were modeled after airline meals, which were served in aluminum trays, allowing them to be heated up and served quickly. The meals also coincided with TV's rise in popularity, hence their name.

1960s: Beef Wellington

According to Smith, this extravagant dish of beef covered in foie gras or mushrooms and baked in a puff pastry became popular party fare in the '60s. It served as evidence that the hostess who was serving it was high class.

Despite the fact that many people think the dish is named after an English Duke, the recipe was far more popular in America than in England. It was even featured in the "White House Cookbook" in 1968.

1970s: Smoothies

Although smoothies were invented during the 1930s (when the blender first came out), Smith says that smoothies only really gained significant popularity in the '70s. Vegetarians had caught onto the trend earlier, in the '60s, but the fruity, blended beverage didn't gain mass appeal until it hit malls in the '70s. Smoothies then had a comeback in the early 2000s.

1980s: Jell-O Pudding Pops

Along with the popularization of the term "comfort food," the '80s saw a rise in sweet snacks like Jell-O Pudding Pops. The pops were advertised as "frozen pudding on a stick" that was made with 60% skim milk.

Bill Cosby was the face and voice behind this frozen snack, which, to the dismay of countless people, was discontinued in the '90s (although Popsicle brought them back in 2004). Another sweet snack that marked the '80s were Fruit Roll Ups.

1990s: Lunchables

Every school kid's dream lunch, Lunchables were DIY lunch kits that allowed you to build your own pizza or simply enjoy some crackers and cheese. The packages included ingredients from popular brands like shredded Kraft cheese (Lunchables were manufactured by Kraft Heinz) and Ritz crackers.

Aside from the fact that they consisted largely of heavily-processed food, Lunchables gave busy parents a way around having to pack their child a brown bag lunch.

2000s: Cupcakes

Cupcakes have been around for a while, but it wasn't until the first decade of the 2000s that the dessert experienced a true boom in popularity. Sprinkles, one of the first cupcake bakeries, opened in Beverly Hills in 2005. Four years later, Baked By Melissa started selling the tasty, bite-sized cupcakes they're now known for. That same year, the first episode of "Cupcake Wars" aired, a baking competition reality show in which contestants competed to make the best cupcake.

2010s: Kale

The past several years have been marked by a number of health food trends, including a shift towards salads and grain based bowls. This shift, as well as an increase in popularity in farmers' markets and the fresh produce found there, has led to kale's reign as the health food of the moment. Kale Caesar salads have become commonplace on many a restaurant menu, and people have taken to wearing shirts emblazoned with "Kale" or "eat more kale."

We spoke with food historian and author of "Food in America," Andrew F. Smith, and did some of our own research to find the foods that were iconic throughout the last 11 decades.

Keep scrolling to see some of the foods that defined the past 100 years.

1910s: Cracker Jack

According to Smith, Cracker Jack was the first commercial snack food. The caramel-coated popcorn and peanut mix launched in 1896, and by 1916 it was the largest-selling snack food in the world.

1920s: Candy bars

The 1920s brought on Prohibition, but it also brought on the advent of Mars Company, according to Smith. The company was founded in 1922, and created Milky Way in 1923. It went on to create Snickers — which has since remained the most popular candy bar in the US — and Three Musketeers in the early 1930s.

Other candy bars invented during the '20s include Butterfinger, Mounds, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, Mr. Goodbar, and Babe Ruth.

1930s: Congealed salads and casseroles

The Great Depression changed the way that women cooked. Because many women had jobs during this time period, efficiency became a main priority in the kitchen. Casseroles — like green bean and tuna noodle — were easy to prepare and served as a creative way to repurpose all kinds of leftovers into a new meal.

Gelatin became a popular foundation of many meals during the 30s thanks to the fact that it was a good, but inexpensive, source of protein. According to the "The Oxford Encyclopedia of Food and Drink in America," close to one third of all cookbook recipes from this time period were gelatin based. Meals often consisted of rings of gelatin surrounding a smattering of random fruits, vegetables, eggs, olives, and more.

1940s: Frozen orange juice

Smith says that frozen food took off after World War II ended. Before this time period, refrigerators didn't have freezers that were large enough to store much of anything.

In 1946, a man named Jack Fox created the company Minute Maid, according to Smith. Minute Maid manufactured the first-ever frozen orange juice concentrate. This canned alternative was cheap, lasted a long time, and with the addition of of just water, consumers could have orange juice in minutes.

1950s: TV dinners

C.A. Swanson Co starting making TV dinners in 1950. The frozen meals featured turkey, and later chicken and beef, that only required a short amount of oven time before it was ready to eat. The dinners caught on quick. According to Smith, in 1956, Swanson sold a total of 13 million TV dinners.

Smith says the meals were modeled after airline meals, which were served in aluminum trays, allowing them to be heated up and served quickly. The meals also coincided with TV's rise in popularity, hence their name.

1960s: Beef Wellington

According to Smith, this extravagant dish of beef covered in foie gras or mushrooms and baked in a puff pastry became popular party fare in the '60s. It served as evidence that the hostess who was serving it was high class.

Despite the fact that many people think the dish is named after an English Duke, the recipe was far more popular in America than in England. It was even featured in the "White House Cookbook" in 1968.

1970s: Smoothies

Although smoothies were invented during the 1930s (when the blender first came out), Smith says that smoothies only really gained significant popularity in the '70s. Vegetarians had caught onto the trend earlier, in the '60s, but the fruity, blended beverage didn't gain mass appeal until it hit malls in the '70s. Smoothies then had a comeback in the early 2000s.

1980s: Jell-O Pudding Pops

Along with the popularization of the term "comfort food," the '80s saw a rise in sweet snacks like Jell-O Pudding Pops. The pops were advertised as "frozen pudding on a stick" that was made with 60% skim milk.

Bill Cosby was the face and voice behind this frozen snack, which, to the dismay of countless people, was discontinued in the '90s (although Popsicle brought them back in 2004). Another sweet snack that marked the '80s were Fruit Roll Ups.

1990s: Lunchables

Every school kid's dream lunch, Lunchables were DIY lunch kits that allowed you to build your own pizza or simply enjoy some crackers and cheese. The packages included ingredients from popular brands like shredded Kraft cheese (Lunchables were manufactured by Kraft Heinz) and Ritz crackers.

Aside from the fact that they consisted largely of heavily-processed food, Lunchables gave busy parents a way around having to pack their child a brown bag lunch.

2000s: Cupcakes

Cupcakes have been around for a while, but it wasn't until the first decade of the 2000s that the dessert experienced a true boom in popularity. Sprinkles, one of the first cupcake bakeries, opened in Beverly Hills in 2005. Four years later, Baked By Melissa started selling the tasty, bite-sized cupcakes they're now known for. That same year, the first episode of "Cupcake Wars" aired, a baking competition reality show in which contestants competed to make the best cupcake.

2010s: Kale

The past several years have been marked by a number of health food trends, including a shift towards salads and grain based bowls. This shift, as well as an increase in popularity in farmers' markets and the fresh produce found there, has led to kale's reign as the health food of the moment. Kale Caesar salads have become commonplace on many a restaurant menu, and people have taken to wearing shirts emblazoned with "Kale" or "eat more kale."
