Takeout Solutions: Individually Wrapped Loaf Cakes

This past year has proven quite the challenge in adapting to our consumer needs. Our baked goods have always managed to bring richness and delight to menus across the country, but we’ve found there’s a more immediate need for solutions that are safe, easy to execute AND readily available. Our prepackaged desserts and food service to-go packaging resources have provided solutions. We’re here to announce our extension of individually wrapped Pullmans.

Consumers Demand Safety

Marble Chocolate Chip Pullman Product ImageToday’s climate has increased consumer food needs for safe packaging and labor-cutting products. Consumers have been screaming for versatile products that can be enjoyed on the go, without sacrificing wholesome ingredients. Since 2012, the demand for non-GMO snacks has risen 18.2%. At c-stores, 33% of consumers say they plan to purchase healthy items and 44.2% are willing to pay premium prices for those products. Operators need cross-functional products that cover all day-parts and eliminate waste. Enter Individually Wrapped Manifesto Pullmans. Our artisan loaf cakes use fresh and sustainable ingredients preserving the same indulgent taste found in the rest of our Manifesto line, packed up and ready to go wherever you go. They’re the perfect contact-less option that works great for take out or delivery, as grab-and-go options for c-stores, for catering, or as part of a bakery case display.

In removing additives and GMO ingredients, the flavor of each Pullman has the chance to shine. Wholesome decadence meets grab-n-go goodness.

 

Ingredients that Care

Our individually wrapped artisan loaf cakes are abundant with fresh ingredients in their purest form; hand-pureed ripened bananas, the natural sweetness of sustainably grown chocolates, the sweet spice of Saigon cinnamon or the brightness of lemon. They’re free from GMO’s and all things artificial; additives, colors and flavor. Click here to learn more about our sustainable sourcing and ingredient initiatives.

Be Sure to Invite Manifesto® Desserts to the Party

It’s Time to Impress Guests

From Thanksgiving to New Year’s our weekends are busy with attending parties or hosting gatherings. Of course, the best and worst part about these occasions are the endless opportunities to taste treats that you later regret eating. But have no fear this holiday season, when you share Sweet Street’s Manifesto Desserts everyone will feel good about these natural ingredients baked to enjoy. Whether perfecting your own holiday party or hoping to impress a host, we invite you to share these individually wrapped indulgences with all.

Desserts You Will Feel Good About Enjoying

These gourmet desserts are deserving of their three Food and Beverage Innovation Awards for breakthrough, cleaner desserts. Mixed with pure cane sugar, cage-free eggs and sustainably grown chocolates, these freshly baked Manifestodesserts are made from simple ingredients befitting of your pantry. With two decadently wholesome flavors to be enjoyed, each bite of our Manifestocookies is truly a pure indulgence to feel good about or try one of our certified gluten-free brownies. All of these Sweet Street desserts will be sure to elevate your next party.

Everyone will be singing fa, la, la, la, yum after tasting Chewy Marshmallow Manifesto™ Bars.

Mouth-Wateringly Delicious Inspirations

When preparing for your holiday gathering be sure to share Chewy Marshmallow ManifestoBars. Your guests will have an unforgettable experience when they take a bite of homemade mini-marshmallows and marshmallow cream – both all-natural and GMO-free – folded with gluten-free crispy rice puffs. Just a touch of butter gets browned, but enough to bring up a subtle caramel note with a hint of sea salt that makes it all come alive. If your guests enjoy these, then they’ll absolutely love Sandy’s Amazing Chocolate Chunk Manifesto Cookie that’s rich with giant morsels of chocolate sustainably grown in the Peruvian Andes, then melted into a brown butter, caramelized, chewy-chip edge wonder—truly sustainable chocolate chip cookies. Both individually wrapped dessert classics are browned to perfection and created with ingredients you’ll be proud to enjoy and share.
