I have always enjoyed different foods and trying different things. Not too exotic, though. Recently I have not been able to figure out why all of the fuss and hype about certain foods that have been around forever.
Nowadays, you can’t go anywhere without seeing something that has pomegranate in it. There is pomegranate applesauce, pomegranate lemonade, pomegranate and green tea mixed. You get the point. My question is why all of the fuss. I can remember eating pomegranates as a snack when I was in kindergarten, no big deal. They tasted great.
The next food is black beans. Something that has been around for a while but now they seem to be in everything, especially burritos and other such delicacies. Now you can go to the store and find several different types of black beans: vegetarian, Cuban, etc.
I would like to hear from readers as to why all of the fuss about these foods. If I thought about it long enough, I could come up with more foods that fit it this category. I welcome your opinions and comments!
