According to modern social historians, the trend began with the ice-cream industry. Realizing America’s desire for variety and continual change, several large ice-cream chains began introducing the concept of changing flavors on a monthly basis. No longer would consumers have to settle for the basics – chocolate, vanilla and strawberry. Each month, ice-cream parlors (some became known as “boutiques”) would offer new and exciting flavors to tantalize the palate.
Of course, what began as a novelty soon became a trend throughout society. Soon, other food industries began offering new and varied flavors. If you enter most coffee stores today, you can easily become overwhelmed by the long list of flavors posted on the wall (teas are also generally included). Do you have a sweet-tooth? There are jelly bean clubs that make new flavors available month after month.
It seems that the ever-changing flavors indicate that it is hard for many people to decide exactly what they prefer. You never know what to expect when you enter the shop. In fact, sometimes making a choice can become extremely confusing and even frustrating? How do you know that you will like the “new addition?” Isn’t it comforting to know, though, that some things remain constant, and you never have to be concerned that the product may not be to your liking?
