Millennials get accused of ruining everything. Chain restaurants, shopping malls, Harley-Davidson, common decency… the list goes on and on.
Still, tastes change, and certain items are destined to become extinct in the modern era with or without the aid of millennials and their strange ways. One of the places this phenomenon is most apparent? The food industry. Blame it on Instagram, or millennials, or celebrity chefs, but no matter who’s responsible, the facts are undeniable. Reliable steak and potatoes have been replaced by avocado toast and kombucha.
Ahead, check out some foods that run the risk of dying with the boomer generation.
