Datassential reports that three in four consumers are excited to try new food trends in 2022.1 And as they look for new excitement on menus, many are looking for great spicy options. Datassential also indicates the American consumer’s appetite continues to grow for spicy flavors.2

Among the spicy flavors in the early phase of menu adoption (trendy restaurants, specialty grocers) and growing on menus include:3

• Guajillo pepper

• Spicy honey

• Gochujang

• Kimchi

Other spicy flavors are even more prolific, having made their way into chain restaurants and mainstream grocery stores. Watch for spicy flavors like:4

• Nashville hot

• Chili lime

• Habanero

• Sriracha

• Salsa verde

Looking for a new way to feature spicy on your menu? Tyson Red Label® Hot ‘N Spicy Chicken Nuggets are an excellent, affordable way to offer the menu options patrons want kicked up with cayenne, black pepper and all white meat.

Add them to your menu as a traditional handheld or snacking option, or change up a familiar spicy recipe like Spicy Sicilian Pizza or Arroz Con Pollo by adding spicy nuggets.
