The Top Spring Flavors and Where to Find Them

April showers bring May flowers, and springtime brings with it a host of new flavors and classic favorites that are sure to please. This year, buyers can expect to find many new twists on their favorite spring flavors – especially those such as strawberry, which are showing up in numerous different variations in products ranging from chocolate confectionary treats to cake frostings, baked goods, and much more.


One of the most notable things about the use of strawberry flavor this spring season is the fact that flavorists are increasingly going “au natural”, favoring strawberry flavor that is much more true to life than the flavors that have reigned supreme in the past. Flavor ingredients such as Advanced Biotech’s Natural Strawberry Furanone can be used to harness this naturally sweet flavor, regardless of the type of product a flavorist is choosing to create. But of course, strawberry is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the delicious fruit flavors that are currently making headway in the flavor industry.


Peach is another delicious, sweet favorite that is seeing bigger and better use this year than ever before. Peach flavors, whether utilized in traditional favorites such as pie or in confectionary items such as gummy candies (and even in beverages such as juice and soda) are one of the big trends for spring and are expected to draw a lot of buyer attention straight on until summer.


To look beyond the sweeter side of things, mint is another flavor that is expected to increase in popularity – especially in more savory food items, where it may be paired with flavors such as green onion for a delicious spin on a number of different traditional springtime savory favorites. Mint is another flavor that you can expect to make a splash this spring and straight on through summer, so now is as good a time as any to examine the many different ways it can be used to flavor everything from prepackaged food items and frozen dishes to sauces, marinades, and virtually anything else that you can think of.


Overall, the theme of this spring season is the revitalization of classics, and there are plenty of ways to do that with a little bit of creativity. The range of delicious dishes that can be created by utilizing and even mixing these types of ingredients is probably even bigger than you may imagine, so don’t be hesitant to try something a little bit different as you spring into action with your flavor creation.
