A meal that is tailored to your DNA? It might sound like complicated and overly remote but this is changing: ultra-personalized food or eating exactly what your body needs! Vita Mojo in London is the first take-away restaurant that offers these meals. In addition, we spotted several other providers that are working on food based on your DNA, examples of Nestlé and of a DNA company in America that works with Amazon to deliver personalized meals at home.

We would like to taste the meals of Vita Mojo … however, handing over your DNA sample to third parties? Your DNA sample is pretty much the only thing that’s really ‘yours’ nowadays. Would you do it? lees verder

Frosted Key Lime shake | When will we see pie shakes in the Netherlands?

23-10-2018

  • Frosted Key Lime ShakeFrosted Key Lime Shake

The American fast food chain Chick-Fil-A is currently testing the Frosted Key Lime shake in Austin, Texas. The concept of shakes with cake taste is certainly not new, last summer we already mentioned Polly’s Pies shakes in Los Angeles in one of our articles on horecatrends.com. A pie shake is made by mixing scoops of ice cream with a piece of pie. The drink is then topped with a dash of whipped cream and garnishes as desired. In this case, the dessert Florida Key Lime pie has been an inspiration for the final Frosted Key Lime shake, which must taste like pie, but isn’t a mixture of pie and ice cream.

We still wonder when we will see this kind of shakes in the Netherlands! lees verder
