Mintel's Global New Products Database has noted some important trends in the new products arena recently. Fat's where it's at Fat equals flavor when it comes to food products.  Flavor leads over calorie consciousness these days, which is why we see the increasing number of indulgent ice creams (think Ben & Jerry's Two Twisted Line), candies (Snickers Crunchers), and salty snacks (Frito-Lay's Flavor Rush line).  As consumers learn to balance their diets on their own, full-fat products will continue to grow.
