2020 may have been a bust in a lot of ways, but we’ve definitely seen some cool, innovative products on our Discovery board this year. This week had prebiotic powders for healthy baking and keto-friendly mug cake mixes, but here are your top three, and thanks for all the votes.

1. Coast | New York, USA

For those of us who are already concerned about how we might get a little healthier in January after an extra-tough year, New York-based brand Coast may have the answer: functional shots, developed by a cancer researcher, made with natural ingredients for effective detox and cell repair. They contain NAD+, antioxidants, vitamins, and electrolytes all in one, but zero sugar, gluten, caffeine or allergens. They can be taken as a daily supplement, post-workout or post-overindulgence, so are particularly perfect for that cold, wet month after the holiday season. With the functional shot market valued at $369M in 2019 and set to see a CAGR of 13.4% from 2020 to 2027, it’s clear that consumers are in search of convenient, effortless wellness without compromise, and these shots might just be the science-based answer.

2. Dineable | Philadelphia, USA

Hands up if you’re looking forward to your Zoom Christmas party, after a year of back-to-back video calls? Zoom fatigue is real, but for some in 2020 video chat has been one of the few ways to connect with others in a socially distanced world. Enter Dineable, based in Philadelphia, with a concept to revitalise those virtual meetings: a co-ordinated catering service which delivers dishes, snacks and happy hour kits to all participants, so you can enjoy a restaurant-quality meal with your friends or colleagues in the comfort of your own home. As we know with our FoodHack community platform, food can really connect people, so we think this is a particularly cool idea.

3. Banana Scoops | London, UK

Who wouldn’t love to eat ice cream for breakfast, instead of sensible, grown up options? Well British brand Banana Scoopsnice cream is so healthy that now you can, guilt-free! It’s made from blended bananas, with natural ingredients such as raspberries, dates and cocoa powder added for flavour, but no other additives, refined sugar or sweetener because bananas are sweet enough. Given that approximately 65% of consumers have some level of intolerance to lactose, dairy-free treats are always welcome, and the non-dairy ice cream market is predicted to be a $1Bn opportunity by 2024.
