The quarantine has surely taught us one thing; it is that no one and nothing can stop a food trend.

Being stuck at home and seeing those mouth-watering food pictures on social media have made us either into home cooks or professional online buyers.

These food trends have been significant in keeping us sane, it is only proper that we recognize them. Check out our list and tell us which one is your favorite.

1. DIY Coffee

Who can forget the famous Dalgona coffee? The first craze that started it all. With just instant coffee, sugar, fresh milk, some hot water, effort in mixing and voila, you can already have your daily dose of coffee that rivals the tasty coffees in cafes. Now, there are a lot of coffee grounds and coffee makers being sold in social media.

2. Assorted Cheesecakes

Cheesecakes were also one of the challenges concocted on social media. The challenge to make one and the challenge to resist ordering one. There were all kinds of tasty cheesecakes that you just really want to have them all. One local store in particular delivers assorted cheesecakes where each slice is a different kind of cheesecake.

Melted cheese inside an ube-flavored pandesal? This unique combination has made the social media world curious and hungry at the same time. Quirky, fun, and tasteful, this violet treat’s fame has made it a must-have in our merienda orders. It is the perfect pair for either hot coffee or cold juice.
