Smoked Libation Consumers are opting for fall-friendly, campfire-inspired flavors Implications - Veering away from sweet beverages for fall, many consumers are opting for smoky, toasted flavors. Beverages that offer a woodsy twist immediately set themselves apart and liven up the drinking experience, and more heavily involve the aromatic aspect of flavor. Ultimately, consumers are searching for new ways to experience the comfort and coziness associated with colder seasons.

Sophisticated Fruit Produce becomes a status symbol as the health movement rages on Implications - In today's society, health-consciousness signals prestige, making fruits and superfoods status symbols associated with sophistication. This has launched a slew of more culinary, higher-end fruit treatments online and in the packaged goods sphere. Signifying a shift in consumer perspective, this new take on previously simplistic fruit intake opens doors for brand positioning and food form alike.

Socialized Tech Consumers seek out social technology experiences Implications - Despite its intended uses, technology and social media can often produce an isolating effect in consumers. As a result, consumers are placing a greater emphasis on the experience of using and consuming different products and forms of media in a way that counteracts solitary consumption. This shift suggests that consumers are searching for technology and social media that is not only social in nature, but literally communal in its use.

Explicit Health Consumers opt for packaging that embodies health benefits Implications - Nutritional transparency is key for health-conscious consumers, but it's not enough for products to merely advertise their ingredients.
