SAN FRANCISCO — Has pumpkin peaked? It may be a question on many product developers’ minds, but analytics expert Anil Kaul, Ph.D., said consumers aren’t yet bored with the gourd.

Dr. Kaul is the chief executive officer and co-founder of Absolutdata, a market intelligence firm that tracks the rise and fall of popular flavors to help companies determine whether to participate in a particular trend. Marshmallow, tabasco and passion fruit are on his list of flavors that recently have fallen out of favor.
