This Is TASTE 330: Emily Sundberg

Emily Sundberg has a knack for writing stories that get people talking. The freelance writer and mind behind the business newsletter Feed Me has an expert eye for trends in the food space and beyond, like the return of whole milk and the rise of the “shoppy shop”—you know, those cute, curated grocery stores that all seem to carry the same made-for-Instagram products. We wanted to have Emily back into the studio to talk about the year in food and drink retail—the products, the trends, and all the media that flows around them. We also talk about the future of Bon Appétit, and how food media is struggling to fight for your “time and your tabs.” Emily is truly one of our favorite voices on the food internet (and really online as a whole), and we were excited to have her on the show.

Also on the show, Aliza and Matt discuss the year in new (and kind-of-new) products and call out their favorites. These include Diaspora Co. pumpkin spice mixConfusion Snacks popcornCabi Foods dashi soy sauceOLIPOP everythingTaiwanese soy paste, and Lexington Bakes brownies.
