A few years ago, Snackbox decided to make Austin, Texas home and we couldn’t be happier about it. Austin is a city few know about, aside from the fact that Austinites are proud of being “weird,” but that’s a good thing; it keeps the city feeling like a small town, despite being the 16th largest city in the US, and the capitol of Texas.

Every year, it seems like there’s a new trend in food, much like there is in fashion. A few years ago, it was cupcakes, which really hasn’t seemed to die down. Last year, some tried to make macaroons the “it” food, but it didn’t catch on. So what makes a food “trendy” and what’s hot so far in 2013?
