So it’s the end of 2013
Goodbye Cronut lines, goodbye Paula Deen

Now is the start of a brand new year
Time for a new pastry; time for more beer

Let’s look ahead to what this next year will mean
Like elite Jell-O shots, and star chefs who’ve gone green

Okay, enough with the tortured rhyming. More on the new beer cuisine later (just be on the lookout for more great chef and brewery partnerships, plus breweries in hotels). Here are five things we’re excited about in 2014.

If you had to sum up 2013 in one word, what would it be? Me, I have to say doughnuts. Mostly because of the omnipresent Cronut, the pastry that mashed up croissants and donuts and got people lining up for hours and launched a trazillion knockoffs.

But don’t forget that this was also the year Dunkin' Donuts introduced their Glazed Donut Breakfast Sandwich for those who want a sticky sweet bun for their bacon and egg sammy. And there’s word that Krispy Kreme will soon introduce “Donut Theater” to the US. Basically, that’s a clever name for a make-your-own doughnut situation.

As Eatocracy's editors, we're (that's Kat Kinsman and Sarah LeTrent) lucky enough to get to travel and eat all over the country, both for work and because it's what we love to do. We've seen some trends popping up in restaurants from coast to coast, and in 2014, here are a few we think stand a chance of catching on in more home and restaurant kitchens across the country.

First Bruce Willis reappeared and flashed us back to the ’80s with the latest Die Hard installment, A Good Day to Die Hard. Then Halle Berry showed up at the Oscars in a dress that looked like she got it straight from Joan Collins in her Dynasty heyday. And now New York City’s Museum of Modern Art is debuting its new collection of arcade video games, featuring the most popular one of them all, Pac-Man.
 
So the ’80s are back. And they’re way back in the world of food and drinks. Here are more clues that show the resurgence of the decade in all its neon pink cocktails and carb-centric glory.
