Sample Edibles Pro Trends - Each Edibles PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online edibles articles, videos and images. Examples:

Hybrid Confection A desire for overindulgence prompts youths to turn to hybrid dessert creations Implications - With Generation Z growing up in a technologically driven society that caters their every whim and desire, expectations for overindulgence are becoming more common. Seeking to make everyday consumption more stimulating, consumers are turning to hybrid dessert creations to combine the practicality of two-in-one meals with the desire for diversified methods of excess. This way, health-conscious consumers can enjoy multiple indulgences in lesser volume, while glutton-seeking foodies can enjoy the novelty of layered confection.
