As the year comes to a close, it’s always customary to reflect on the past 12 months. Usually, the focus is on notable accomplishments or goals you failed to meet, but maybe this year you could go a little lighter on yourself.

For a less serious 2013 reflection, take a moment to think about the year in food. There were several notable food trends this year, from about every celebrity going vegan to the college student’s dream - the 'Ramen Burger.'

Many food inventions were on the fast food side of things and do not appear healthy at all. It seemed like everything was chicken and waffle flavored, and frozen s’mores are just as delectable as they sound.

It wasn't all bad, though. Some trends that rose in popularity became health crazes, such as gluten-free diets and 2013 being named the 'International Year of Quinoa.'

Arranged in no particular order is the most important list you need to take away from 2013, the top food crazes of the year. Looking ahead, glow-in-the-dark ice cream might become a 2014 food craze, you just never know.
