New Fall Foods to Discover Now!

Oct 30 2013 - 1:20pm

The trade and grand tastings at the New York City Wine & Food Festival [1] offer hundreds of samples of new food products on the market. We tried them all (so you don't have to) and found only the best, most delicious new products to share. Take a look at these shop-worthy drinks, soups, snacks, and desserts.

Suja Elements

Suja juice now offers a new line of smoothies called Suja Elements [2] ($5). Available at Whole Foods, the smoothies taste and look superfresh even though the pressurization system gives them a 30-day shelf life. Our favorite is the Mango Fuego, with apple, mango, banana, ginger, and serrano chili. It has the perfect amount of body, heat, and sweetness.

Vintage Italia Marinara Pasta Chips

Who knew pasta could be transformed into chips? Vintage Italia Marinara [3] ($4) tastes like oyster crackers or breadsticks but in a thin, flaky form with flavor dust that tastes like authentic marinara.

Jägermeister Spice

Could this be Jägermeister 's attempt to win back the shot scene from Fireball? Though we prefer the original flavor, Jägermeister Spice [4] ($22) is full of cinnamon and vanilla taste but smooth going down, making it the more desirable shot to take.

Country Crock Simply Delicious

Think spreads have to include sketchy ingredients? Think again! Country Crock Simply Delicious [5] ($2) is a new product from the buttery spread maker that is made from canola oil and yogurt. It's surprisingly light and authentically buttery.

Martin's Cinnamon Swirl Potato Bread

Loaded with fat raisins and layers of real cinnamon, Martin's Cinnamon Raisin Swirl Potato Bread [6] is pillowy, moist, and infinitely better than Pepperidge Farm's version.

Knob Creek Smoked Maple

Knob Creek Smoked Maple [7] ($31) was one of several maple-accented spirits we spotted at the festival, and the smoked maple flavor was subtle enough not to interfere with our love of bourbon.

Food Should Taste Good Kimchi

Kimchi, or spicy Korean fermented cabbage, has made its way into tortilla chip form with these Food Should Taste Good [8] kimchi chips ($4). The powder tastes spicy and vinegary like dill pickles and is so tasty, you may find yourself licking the essence directly off the chips. These are the equivalent of Flamin' Hot Cheetos for foodies — plus, they're so flavorful, there's no need for dip.

Pinnacle Fall Vodkas

Known for its crazy vodka flavors, Pinnacle [9] ($13) sampled its new Fall-themed flavors. Our favorite was the pecan pie, which will appeal to fans of Frangelico and would taste yummy in a white russian.

Progresso Artisan Creamy Potato With Sausage and Kale

Soup-maker Progresso has hopes to appeal to a young, hipper audience with the recent release of its artisan soups, like Creamy Potato With Sausage and Kale [10] ($28 for a case of six). The soup base, though creamy, is more brothlike in consistency and tastes like Italian sausage. Despite being prepackaged, it tastes more like a comforting bowl of homemade soup. We imagine serving it with a large handful of freshly steamed kale to take the artisanal flavors up a notch.

BluePrint Juices

BluePrint [11] offered tastes of three new flavors; we loved them all, but our favorite had to be the citrusy orange, grapefruit, and lemon.

Punkin Cranberry Way Better Snacks

The sprouted chip company Way Better Snacks [12] ($20 for six bags) released a limited-edition, seasonal flavor, Punkin Cranberry. While it tastes more like sweet potato than pumpkin, it still captures that Fall flavor that we love.

Finnish Ruis Bread

This whole-grain rye bread [13] ($40 for six loaves) tastes like a cross between Mestemacher German rye bread and a chewy bagel. It would be a shame to adorn it with more than cucumber and cheese.

Duncan Hines Decadent Strawberry Cheesecake Cupcake Mix

Some people think you can't beat homemade cakes, but sometimes the day calls for moist boxed cake. The new Duncan Hines Strawberry Cheesecake Decadent Cupcake Mix [14] ($4) has a neon pink color, tastes like strawberry candy, and comes with cream cheese frosting and a pastry bag. While the cake and frosting may have missed the cheesecake mark, they nail the nostalgia target.

Magnifico Giornata Ginger Pêche

Magnifico Giornata [15] ($30) sparkling cuvée in Ginger Pêche turned our heads with its prominent packaging, but a sip sold the deal. The sparkling white wine has just a hint of ginger and peach flavor and has similar bellini-like flavors, minus the sugar and juice.
