As shoppers continue to look for comfort flavours, there’s a lean toward nostalgic tastes such as rhubarb and custard, butterscotch and banoffee. The tastes of childhood have grown in popularity since the pandemic and are showing no sign of slowing down.
To seize this opportunity and maximise profit opportunities, operators should consider offering additional toppings to add to their Danish Pastry range. Schulstad Bakery Solution’s Maple Pecan Plait can be upgraded by topping with whipped cream, adding a sprinkle of chocolate pieces and drizzling with caramel sauce. Best of all, most of these topping ingredients are commonly found in most operator kitchens, take minimal time to do but create an indulgent sweet impact, maximising that treat occasion.
