Be honest: How many lists of top food trends have you already read? Five? Ten? Fifty? Forget them all. This one, right here, is the only one you’ll need.

1. Bananas will be yellow.

2. People will eat cupcakes. People will eat bacon. People will eat pie. People will breathe air, drink water and get pregnant, though not necessarily in that order.

3. Kombucha will remain wildly popular, so get used to rolling that word around on your tongue. Of course, only six people know what it actually is.

4. A well-known pizza chain will invent a new way to put even more cheese on its pizza: by injecting cheese into the cheese.

5. A well-known donut chain will debut a donut whose hole is stuffed with a fully loaded baked potato.
