TRUFFLES -Aromatic+Indulgent

Specialty Fancy Foods Show 2017 Trends 

Italian purveyor Selektia Tartufi maybe had the most expensive gourmet food item on display...pictured above their truffle products 

When we think of truffles-thoughts leans towards the deeply aromatic kind that can sell at auction for thousands of dollars. For consumers-oils and butters with hints of the black or white  (there's also whitish + burgundy)- still find favor (flavor)...but we also noticed new product categories for the fungi fans. 

Also note worthy-the lucious sweet chocolate kind-now available in cookie/candy bar flavors as well as truffle truffle kind. 

Prediction-cannabis edibles -truffles-probably coming soon to a store near you.
