The 100 Best Products from Top Food Trends in 2019
We may earn a commission for anything you purchase through links on this page.
After seeing some of the wildest trends take off in 2019, we're never going to be able to guess what's in our food again. This year, we saw the rise of burgers that aren't made of meat, milk that's made of oats, and cheese dip that's crafted from nuts.
Food trends ebb and flow—and we've seen some truly crazy trends—so it's expected that certain products that are in vogue now will fall out of fashion as we move on to the new year. However, there are some food movements, if you will, that we predict will stick around throughout 2020 and beyond.
The Eat This, Not That! editors compiled a list of the food trends we've seen rise in popularity throughout 2019 that we expect to continue in 2020. To try these popular trends (you're going to sooner or later, trust us), we've pulled together some of our favorite products in each category.
Plant-Based Meat Alternatives
Your meat is not what it seems. After advances in food technology, plant-based meat alternatives have finally gone mainstream due to their uncanny ability to mimic the look and taste of real meat. There are now dozens of products to choose from, and we've picked our favorites.
Impossible Burger Ground Beef
Until now, the Impossible Burger was only available in foodservice. The soy-based, meat-free burger has a special ingredient—heme—which makes it taste exactly like meat and even bleed like it, too. While the burger is available in countless restaurant chains across the country, most notably, fast-food giant Burger King hopped on the bandwagon and introduced the Impossible Whopper in 2019. Now, you can purchase the ground beef version in select retailers in eight lucky states.
The Impossible Burger's nemesis, the Beyond Burger, has been available in both grocery stores and foodservice for years. In 2019, the company reformulated their recipe to get rid of wheat, making the patty gluten-free. This soy-free burger is made with the perfect combination of complementary proteins to form a complete protein blend that's comparable to real beef.
Lightlife Plant-Based Italian Sausage
Lightlife launched a new line of meat-like pork sausage replacements in 2019. They may be plant-based, but we bet you'd barely be able to distinguish the difference between this and the Italian sausage you've been buying your whole life.
UNCUT Breakfast Sausage
If you want to make your own Sausage Egg McMuffin at home, there hasn't really been a good way to do it—until now. While store-bought sausage patties, like Jimmy Dean's, are too small for an appropriate breakfast sandwich, this plant-based breakfast sausage from UNCUT is the perfect size (and was actually specifically shaped to fit on an English muffin). This plant-based sausage patty also crisps up even better than your regular sausage.
Raised & Rooted Nuggets
The title-holders of "the number 1 brand of chicken nuggets in the U.S.," Tyson, introduced this entirely plant-based version of nuggets in September 2019. These nuggets are made with pea protein and plant-based fiber for a meaty, tender texture on the inside, and a crispy batter for a satisfying crunch on the outside.
Abbot's Butcher Chorizo
Unlike the other heavily processed meat alternatives on the market that were developed in labs, The Abbot's Butcher was developed in a kitchen. Their taste-forward approach rather than the scientific quest to make the most meat-like product really makes their flavors stand out, appealing to people who are looking for food that simply tastes good. You'll only find ingredients you can recognize in this "Chorizo": like extra virgin olive oil, organic tomato paste, and Spanish smoked paprika.
Gardein Fishless Filet
Everyone knows about the beef, sausage, and chicken meat alternatives, but did you know you can also try fish alternatives? Gardein has been selling their Fishless Filets for years, and they're a classic. They're perfect for fish tacos, fish sandwiches, and classic fish and chips.
Plant-based meat alternatives aren't the only popular items people are raving about! Other delicious plant-based snacks have popped up among grocery store aisles around the country, and there are a few that you absolutely need to stock up on.
Made from mung beans, this vegan egg substitute looks, cooks, and tastes just like scrambled eggs. Perfect for those with egg allergies, the elderly watching their cholesterol intake, or vegans looking for an egg substitute, JUST Egg satisfies all your egg needs, both in baking and in dishes.
Good Foods Plant-Based Dips, Queso

Miyoko's Cultured Vegan Butter
While Miyoko's has a line of delicious vegan cheeses, you can also stock up on their vegan butter as well! It will give some of your favorite dishes that fatty, buttery texture and taste.
Deep Indian Kitchen Chickpea Masala
For an easy dinner (or lunch!) heat up a box of Deep Indian Kitchen's Chickpea Masala! It's full of simple ingredients including chickpeas, tomatoes, onions, peppers, and other spices. Paired well with rice, each box has 10 grams of protein and it's non-GMO.
Bitchin' Sauce, Green Chile & Pepita
Looking for some creamy sauce to dipping some of your chips? This almond-based sauce is exactly what you've been looking for! The Green Chile & Pepita sauce is actually mild, but full of flavor thanks to the green chiles, pepitas, cumin, garlic, and jalapeno.
Daiya Plant-Based Homestyle Breakfast Burrito
A breakfast burrito may seem like the kind of item that would be off-limits on a plant-based diet, but never fear! Daiya—a member of the Plant-Based Food Association—comes with egg-style scramble, meatless sausage, and cheddar-style shreds. It's a plant-based home run!
The cousin of your least-favorite childhood veggie somehow stole the hearts of American food manufacturers. Its white color, unassuming flavor, and starchy texture make the cruciferous vegetable extremely versatile. You can try it in what feels like hundreds of products—likely with many more to come in 2020.
Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi
Arguably the most famous of the cauliflower products, cauliflower gnocchi has a legion of devoted fans. Cauliflower Gnocchi has its own Instagram account and over 13,000 posts have used the hashtag #cauliflowerghnocchi. There may be a few different brands out there now, but Trader Joe's was one of the first (and is still our favorite). Try it with everything from pesto to marinara sauce to cinnamon sugar and icing.

Purely Elizabeth Strawberry Hazelnut Cauli Hot Cereal
Freeze-dried cauliflower instead of oatmeal? It sounds bizarre, but Purely Elizabeth is onto something here. The cauliflower turns into a creamy, velvety texture when you add boiling water. It's all brightened up with tangy strawberries and mellowed out by roasted hazelnuts for a deliciously convenient breakfast cup.
Outer Aisle Cauliflower Sandwich Thins
We know pizza crust is all the rage, but did you ever want to reap the same low-carb benefits on a sandwich?

Green Giant Garlic & Herb Mashed Cauliflower
Mashed potatoes are true soul food, but if you're interested in a lighter take on the dinner table classic side, check out this product from Green Giant.

Purdue sneaks a quarter cup of veggies—cauliflower and chickpeas—into a serving of these chicken tenders.
Why have you been seeing protein everywhere? The macronutrient will fill you up and help you actually feel full. Plus, it's particularly important if you're looking to build muscle. Now, you're not restricted to getting protein in more "traditional" forms like meat and eggs. Food brands are adding protein to all types of foods that typically left you hungry before. Each of these products are high-protein versions of your favorite foods.
Tone It Up Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars
Most protein bars have a particular texture and taste, typically due to the type of protein added to the bar. But the Tone It Up bars are on a completely different spectrum!

Low-cal sparkling waters
Soda sales have been dropping for almost half a decade now, as consumers favor their less-sugary, carbonated alternatives: sparkling water, seltzer, and club soda.
It seems like Spindrift is everywhere these days, and for good reason! Their Cran-Raspberry has such a powerful flavor that's perfect for sipping on its own or even using as a mixer with a splash of vodka. What's unique about this sparkling water is that it's sweetened with real fruit juice, rather than natural or artificial flavors like other carbonated beverages.

Gut-Healthy (Probiotics + Prebiotics)
Gut health remains at the top of consumers' minds, as a healthy gut has been linked to weight regulation, mental health, and your immune system.

Prebiotics are types of dietary fiber that feed the good bacteria in the gut and are found in foods like underripe bananas, barley, and roots. Probiotics are good bacteria found naturally in fermented foods and can be added to regular foods that can conceivably colonize your gut and help nurse it back to health. These products

An estimated 36 percent of Americans suffer from lactose malabsorption: a reduced ability to digest lactose. Many of us have struggled through bloated stomachs, expedited bathroom trips, and general inflammation by forcing ourselves to continue to consume lactose-containing dairy products because they just taste so good. Now, food manufacturers are listening to our problems, and they've developed an array of lactose-free solutions to our dairy problems.
Siggi's Lactose-free, Plain

Vital Farms Ghee
Ghee has been making its way into more and more kitchens although the clarified butter has already been a staple in Indian cooking, Southeast Asian, and Mediterranean cuisine.

Low Sugar/Sweetened with Real Fruit
The new nutrition label is slated to go into effect in January 2020. This change marks the first time "added sugar" will appear on the nutrition label. To avoid having to declare added sugars, many manufacturers are opting to sweeten their products with real fruit, which does not require an added sugars declaration on the Nutrition Facts panel. The result is a new class of food products that are lightly sweetened and have a nice hint of fruitiness.
RELATED: The easy guide to cutting back on sugar is finally here.
Lopaus Point Gluten-Free Waffles, Chocolate Chip

Sweetened with dates, Tessemae's BBQ sauce is the perfect complement to your next barbeque or dip on the side of your plant-based nuggets.

The brand also launched an unsweetened ketchup that has half the sugar of your average tomato-based condiment.
Wallaby Organic No Sugar Added Aussie Greek, Peach Hibiscus
Usually, fruit-on-the-bottom yogurts are loaded with a sugary fruit jelly. On the other side of the spectrum, no sugar added yogurts are often plain, boring, and fairly tart. The solution? Wallaby sweetenes their yogurt with organic peaches and natural flavor. That way, you get the fruity flavor you love without that goopy layer of fruit puree.
Canned Alcoholic Drinks
Sometimes, you just want to pop open a can after a long day and get sipping on something a little stronger than soda. Canned alcoholic drinks are convenient and the idea of a read-to-sip cocktail is a popular one, as their sales increased 40 percent in 2019 and will no doubt continue to rise.
White Claw, Black Cherry
Take a peek into a millennial's' fridge and there's a good chance you'll find some White Claw cans. The spiked seltzer brand—which is naturally gluten-free and clocks in at just 100 calories—has managed to become a staple at every gathering from barbecues to Friendsgiving. It's safe to say this is easily becoming a go-to drink of choice for both men and women and the black cherry flavor is simply refreshing.
Truly Hard Seltzer, Mango
Truly markets itself as the "best tasting hard seltzer on the market" and the mango flavor lives up to the hype. It's crisp and refreshing, and in the fall of 2019, the brand introduced an updated seltzer formula. Starting in 2020, new flavors will be available too, such as original lemonade, strawberry lemonade, and mango lemonade.

A trip to Trader Joe's wouldn't be complete without some canned wine, right? Well, you can find Simpler Wines in rosé and white varieties at TJ's that provide a light carbonated flavor.
With the increase in health consciousness, many people are becoming "sober curious," or people who are interested in drinking less often or not at all. With this sober curiously comes the products perfectly poised to solve these mindful consumers: alcohol-free spirits. Previously, non-drinkers were relegated to sipping on a sugary soda or water at a bar. Now, they, too, can indulge in a handcrafted mocktail of their choosing, courtesy of the following brands leading the alcohol-free charge.
Seedlip, Garden 108
Yes, yes, you might be fearful of the "pea" in the description, but we urge you to set aside any preconceived notions of legumes and just try it. This non-alcoholic cocktail is beautifully balanced with a hint of earthiness and it's wildly herbaceous. It's both refreshing and intriguing. You've never tried anything like this before, but after you do, you may end up swearing off the booze for good.
Bar None, Spiced Ginger Mule
You'll find no gin in this mule. This alcohol-free version features some interesting ingredients you wouldn't typically find in a mule, like kombucha and apple cider vinegar. The pleasant ginger spice flavor is heightened by the lime juice, which is all rounded out by a mild sweetness. It's honestly worth drinking as a standard drink rather than an alcohol replacement.
Hella Bitters & Soda, Dry
Bitters are an essential ingredient in numerous cocktails, so these canned drinks are extremely reminiscent of the flavors you think of when you think of alcoholic drinks. Hella's beverages are designed to be drunk on their own, straight out of the can, or you can also use them as a mixer when you're feeling like having a drink.
Kin High Rhode
This tonic is part of a newly-invented category of functional beverages known as "euphorics," which is described by the brand as "a nightlife beverage made from nourishing nootropics, balancing adaptogens, and replenishing botanicals that lifts the mind and relaxes the body to open the spirit to connection." Basically, their blend of ingredients targets neurotransmitters in your brain to make you feel both stress-free and elevated.
