Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, and many Americans gather with family and friends and celebrate with food. A recent social media and web analysis of fruit-based recipes highlights the fact that the most fashionable food is red, white, and blue, with berries marking the most popular online fruit across the United States for Memorial Day.

“It was no surprise to see berries appear in popular recipes that celebrated themes of red, white, and blue or even lemons for refreshing desserts and drinks, but it was interesting to see popular conversations around dates, which highlighted the trending popularity of date brownies,” said Melinda Goodman, president of FullTilt Marketing.
“Trends have always played an important role in brand marketing. But the advent of new technology that allows us to evaluate consumer conversations about what consumers are talking about and cooking in real-time creates opportunities for more dynamic content creation, flavor explorations, recipe development, and new product expansions,” said Goodman.
