Forget fashion — food is on a steep upward climb toward untouchable levels of trendiness. And just as styles from different decades rotate their way back into the limelight (ahem, '70 mustard-yellow turtlenecks and bell-bottomed pants), edible products do exactly the same. Think about the revolution toast experienced. A once bland breakfast side, sliced bread turned into a superstar main slathered in avocado and sprinkled with crushed red pepper flakes. Social media had a frenzy.

But 2016 will be closing its closet (and pantry) doors soon. And as we look for what will be the off-the-shoulder-top or matcha lattes of 2017, Whole Foods has chimed in to provide us with some seemingly spot-on predictions. From Japanese food (we're already on board with that one) to more coconut everything (sure, why not), WF read its trendy tea leaves and is ready to tell us what to Instagram next.
