We’re more than halfway through 2020 and there have been some impressive food trends thus far! Moving into the second half of the year brings new, exciting flavors and trends to try, courtesy of Pinterest. Check out a list of our top eight food trends for the rest of 2020.

Pea Proteins

With new, popular meatless items emerging all the time, pea proteins and meatless alternatives have skyrocketed in popularity. This trend is a lifestyle change that is expected to grow into new foods and cross into familiar ones throughout the rest of the year.

Lower-Calorie Alcoholic Beverages

The rise in popularity of sparkling alcoholic beverages has taken over and won’t slow down any time soon. With popular brands introducing exciting new flavors, this trend will continue to take over the alcoholic beverage category.

Meal Prep Days

Many people want to find easier ways to make better food choices during the week. It makes sense to spend more time cooking and preparing meals on one day to enjoy for the remainder of the week. Check out what others are doing by viewing #MealPrepSunday on Instagram for inspiration and tag us in your photos using #Publix. Don’t have the extra time? Publix Aprons® Meal Kits could be a great option for you!

Indoor Microgreens

You may be familiar with the importance of composting and growing your own garden, but what about growing your own herbs and salad fixings? It’s easy and can be done year-round — in your own kitchen. Microgreens are a sustainable and delicious addition your entire family will enjoy.


Gnocchi is tasty and can be filled with a wide variety of unique and creative foods; some brands are starting to experiment with different varieties, such as kale, broccoli and cauliflower. For a flavorful dish, our Publix Aprons® Chicken and Gnocchi Soup is delicious and ready to eat in less than an hour.

Chile-Lime Seasoning

Chile-lime salt seasoning has been a staple in Mexican recipes for decades. Now, it’s finally getting the attention it deserves and is lending its versatility to family favorites, such as omelets, popcorn and more. It’s bold, full of flavor and guaranteed to add a fresh kick and bring new life to your favorite everyday items. Try this seasoning on salmon!


This Jewish and Eastern European favorite has been around for centuries. Recently, babka’s search results online increased dramatically. It’s sweet, hearty, delicious and photo-friendly for your social media accounts. Don’t feel like baking? No worries! Try a pre-made babka and get it delivered through Instacart.

Honey Butter

Honey mixed with butter, slathered on a dish like chicken and waffles, is beyond delicious. Whether you want to sweeten a meal or mix the sweet with the salty, it’s a tasty addition. These Publix Aprons® Honey-Stung Sweet Potatoes are the perfect blend of sweet and tangy.
