Hispanic Millennials: Food and Cooking.
Are you the kind of person who hates when people share what they’re eating on Facebook? Have you had more than enough of Instagrammed #FoodPorn photos? Well, I have some news for you: These might be indicators that you are a generation too old.
Millennials love food and they also love being social. Technology has enabled them to mix both of those passions, so I’m very sorry to tell you that the never ending flow of Foursquare check-ins into restaurants, pins to recipes online, and Instagram food photos will keep on coming. Members of this generation value experience significantly more than previous generations, which is why they are very vocal on how they experience food. Even if that means posting online every single thing they eat.
So we know Millennials like food and love to share their experiences. But, have you wondered if there is any differentiator at all between non-Hispanic Millennials and Hispanic Millennials regarding food and cooking?
Insight TR3S released yesterday an analysis of Simmons data on traditional foods and cooking habits among adult Hispanic Millennials. Looks like Hispanic cuisine and traditions remain relevant for Hispanic Millennials. As I read the analysis, I kept thinking that all this information would be easier to share in an infographic, so here it is. Please feel free to share it around with a tweet, a pin or in you Facebook newsfeed.
Oh, and don’t be a hater. When your Facebook feed is full of food photos you should feel happy. You are watching a new generation in action. ;)
