#2 Almond – The tendency for almond flavor to carry and enhance other flavors from lemon and honey to ginger and cherry has consistently kept this flavor in the #2 position for the past three years.

#3 Lemon – As tart and tangy flavors temper sweetness in bakery items, lemon continues to be a popular extract flavor with limitless creative opportunities for at-home recipes. 

#4 Peppermint – The seasonal appeal of peppermint keeps it at the top of the list. While it did see a slight decline in sales of from 2017 to 2018, peppermint extract still has appeal in a variety of recipes for home bakers.

#5 Coconut – With a 318% increase in the number of products launched with coconut flavor from 2010 to 2016, the rise in coconut flavoring in bakery products is predominantly due to Millennials perception of coconut as a better-for-you ingredient.
