Food Trend you wish would fade away?

Since there have been a few posts here about specific food trends ( truffle oil, pork belly....) folks seem to like or dislike, lets just have open season on 'em.

Tell me / us which one you are sick of or love, and why.

My dislike is Red Velvet Cake, Cupcake...anything.

I can taste the bitter red dye in most of the concoctions, and basically, it's neither chocolate cake, even though it has a bit of cocoa in it, nor vanilla, either. It's just sweet. With a bitter at the back of it all. Eeeew. The frosting, IMHO, is usually the only edible part if it's a good cream cheese version.
