Sample Chips Pro Trends

Each Chips PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online chips articles, videos and images. Examples:

Promotional Authenticity Brands take a traditional approach to commercials and marketing Implications - Approaches to marketing via commercials are shifting away from modern, virtual themes towards a more classic take on advertising. This move helps brands captivate contemporary audiences that, in direct response to technology, have expressed a disdain for constant connectivity and the digitization of industry.

Herbal Libation Liquor, spirits and cocktails are infused with refreshing green ingredients Implications - The alcohol industry has seen a resurgence of herbal and vegetable-based flavors, particularly in the liquor and spirits category. The move away from sweeter flavors not only reflects a consumer shift towards health-conscious behaviors, but also offers a differentiation and diversification of flavor in the sweet-saturated market. The introduction of lighter, more natural flavors signifies that the alcohol industry is adapting to the health wave without compromising on taste.

Cultural Authenticity Brands recognize diverse cultural identities to strengthen relationships Implications - Though the Hispanic market is rapidly growing in terms of purchasing power, it remains largely under-served in the commercial marketplace. Brands are beginning to take notice, seeking to create an authentic connection with the Hispanic consumer by incorporating traditional cultural practices, holistically and without Americanization. The use of bi-lingual campaigns or Latino spokespeople communicates that brands are prioritizing the Hispanic population, and the lack of forced assimilation gives these campaigns credence.

This homespun take on customization is well received by millennial and Gen Z shoppers, who are accustomed to maker culture and DIY approaches to a wide variety of consumer categories.

Restaurant Replica Consumers gravitate to frozen meals that offer restaurant-ready meals Implications - In order to satiate their experiential taste buds without breaking the bank, many consumers are searching for frozen meals that specifically cater to restaurant imitation. Frozen meals that are larger in size and more complex in flavor not only appeal to the budget-conscious foodie, but also gives them a chance to experiment at home with food they would normally order out.
