The end of the calendar year traditionally means out with the old and in with the new, right? But when you talk about dessert, some of this year’s biggest trends are sure to keep gaining traction well into 2017. And it’s easy to understand why when you see just how enticing they are.
Sweet Street is, of course, right there on the leading edge of this luscious innovation. Let’s take a closer look at what’s captivating dessert lovers today—and how you can take advantage on your menu.
Make them feel like a kid again with candy
On the trend-watching website TheThings.com, “featuring classic candies” makes the list of 20 Amazing Dessert Trends of 2016. There’s just something about enjoying a nostalgic childhood treat with a contemporary new twist.
Sweet Street fits the bill with our Peppermint Stack, a decadent, refreshing, chocolate-mint delight. This festive offering is decorated with pieces of all natural peppermint candy—just like the ones you first unwrapped and enjoyed as a kid. Talk about a fresh take on dessert!
Share sweet times with skillet cookies
TheThings.com also lists skillet cookies on its list of 2016 top dessert trends. Oversized and able to tackle virtually any sweet tooth, skillet cookies are ideally made for sharing. You’ll find several tantalizing options from Sweet Street, including Sandy’s Amazing Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie, the Salted Caramel Crunch Skillet Cookie, and the Just Chocolate Skillet Cookie.

Get back to basics
Patrons continue to demand cleaner, more wholesome ingredients everywhere on the menu, and desserts are no exception. FoodFanatics.com describes how pastry chefs today are taking note and switching out the processed foods in their pantries for organic and all natural alternatives.
In this same spirit of ingredient integrity, Sweet Street proudly offers our Manifesto™ line of cookies and bars. Every batch starts with all-butter, pure-cane-sugar and cage-free-egg cookie dough and promises ingredients that are GMO free, additive free and sustainable. Our Salted Caramel Manifesto™ Cookie is a pure, natural and blissful place to start.
Of course, some desserts never go out of style—particularly during the holiday season. Dial up the festivity on your menu with our Red Velvet Cupcake or Red Velvet Cake. And don’t forget a few all-time favorites for sweets lovers: our Molten Chocolate Cake and Crème Brulée Cheese.
