5 Millennial Foods that have Blessed the 2010's

The West has been blessed by cuisine that may seem to be silly to one who may not have a mindset to that of a Millennial (I'm one of them). These dishes seem wierd in origin, and perhaps outright unusual, such as the dishes I'm about to list. These are 5 dishes that have shown how creative and off-the-cuff Millennials have proven with their cuisine.


Good 'ol Pineapple Pizza!

Good 'ol Pineapple Pizza!

No, it's not Italian, but Greek-Canadian Sam Panopoulos claims that he invented it. If anything, it could be a product of Canada.

Pineapple pizza is a dish that was most likely your first thought upon reading the headline of this article. This is, of course, one of the most recent of the well known dishes that, concept wise, is being etched into the craniums of people today. Some find pineapple pizza to be a cool and tasty, while some find it to be an unnatrual fit that will be phased out via natural selection.

Acroba--I mean Avocado Toast!

Acroba--I mean Avocado Toast!

Back then, ordering avocado toast was viewed as unecessary spending up until this decade (it probably still is), as millennials have begun making dishes featuring avocados even throughout their own small mom-&-pop shops. I personally have not tried avocado toast nor other dishes that contain avocados or even avocados themselves, but after seeing them in most menus throughout my worldly travels, I might try it just out of curiosity. It continues to trend, and I'll see if I wanna hop on the avocado wagon or not.

Anything with Beautifully Crafted Salted-Caramel.

This trend has caught on mostly in the United States, but it'll be no time until it reaches the other half of the world!

Salted-caramel dishes are one of the few things that I believe are a legitimate blessing that I've gotten behind on, especially within drinks too. Most notably, Starbucks does their iconic salted-caramel mocha during the fall-winter season (though I don't know if Starbucks outside the Americas happen to do it). This is an element you will see with most deserts such as choclate bars, cheese cake, and from my experience it is beyond indulging.

On another note: You will know that a dish is beyond Millennial when it ends up in your soap as well, such as Lush's Sea-Salted Caramel Soap, to which a link is posted.

Anything with Bacon (Haram Fuel™)

It's Haram where I'm from, but I do have friends that have shared the divine word of bacon in dishes other than being with eggs and toast (you know, how the English do it), it's in ice cream! Donuts! Maple Syrup! Bacon milkshakes! It's a tool to use with any dish in existence!
Also there exists Bacon Soap, made by one notable Outlaws Soap Company.

Anything--*gasp,* V E G A N™

Anything--*gasp,* V E G A N™

Veganism™ has reached peak popularity here in the late 2010's, with many Millennials turning to a mode of eating that involves avoiding meat or other foods that have originated from every organism in the animal kingdom. This is done mostly for ethical and moral reasons, but more often than mostly one can view someone turning to veganism™ as a means of following the trend to fit in, making him or her look like a mainstream hack than someone unique.
