A friend just told me about Kombucha, a fermented drink that can be found at Whole Foods which is made up of live cultures that literally float around in the drink. It is supposed to be helpful in preventing illness, digestion and increasing energy. So, for research purposes I picked up a few bottles during my Whole Foods run last night. I was advised that it tastes very vinegary and so a novice like me should try the mango flavor which is supposedly the sweetest one.
Synergy, the brand name of the Kombucha drink, definitely tasted vinegary and I could taste the slightest hint of alcohol. I couldn't finish the whole bottle in one sitting, and so I put it back in the fridge. I didn't feel much healthier after drinking it, and although I intend on drinking the few bottles I bought - Kombucha seems to be all hype to me.
Do you have any ideas about what the next big food trend will be?
