Fall is the Season! A Look at Our Top October Inspired Flavors
Summer has faded away in favor of falling leaves, crisp fall air, and the beginning of fall festivities. It’s October, and that means that it’s time to take a look at the most prominent October-inspired flavors. There are many things that the month of October immediately brings to mind – fall festivals, pumpkins, sweet and savory flavor combinations being just a few of them. In particular, October is the season of novelty flavors. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite novelty flavors for the month of October and the many different ways that they can make an appearance in flavor creation.
Caramel corn combines the best of sweet and savory (which we already noted as being particularly popular in the fall months). The rich, buttery flavor of the popcorn is enhanced by being paired with the incredibly rich, sweet flavor of caramel. Caramel corn flavors can be used in a variety of ways, and may appear in everything from delicious novelty candies (such as jellybeans) to flavored liqueurs.
Along the same vein, one of the most popular novelty flavors of the season is undoubtedly candied apples. The tart flavor of apples complements the incredibly sweet flavor of a rich candy coating. Candy apple flavors appear in a number of delicious candy treats, such as gummy candies, jellybeans, and much more, as well as in flavored liqueurs. Candied apple flavor can even be used on popcorn for a unique treat that definitely brings the fall season to mind!
One of the big things to keep in mind is that, compared to other fall flavors that tend to be warmer and richer, October-inspired flavors have a certain sense of fun and novelty to them that brings to mind fall carnivals and the Halloween celebration. Keep this in mind as you use the month of October to inspire your own flavor creations!
