Most of us likely have strong associations with the words “pudding” and “custard.” Thinking about pudding, for instance, can evoke childhood memories of dipping a spoon into a little plastic cup and discovering pure creamy chocolate goodness.
Meanwhile, custard has become wildly popular in the frozen variety. With its smooth texture and limitless topping possibilities, frozen custard can give ice cream a run for its money in the arena of craveable creamy treats.
So what makes these scoopable sweets so irresistibly appealing? Well, the “secret sauce” of custard is, of course, eggs. And the amount of eggs used will determine the consistency of the custard, from a pourable sauce to a thick pastry such as flan. Pudding is similar to custard in consistency, but it commonly includes the addition of setting agents such as cornstarch or gelatin to create its thick, rich texture.
We at Sweet Street fully appreciate the ubiquitous appeal of pudding and custard, and you’ll find both varieties lending their creamy magic to various offerings throughout our dessert product line.
Our Salted Caramel Vanilla Crunch Cake starts with a supernaturally light, but buttery, vanilla-flecked pudding cake and waves of rich caramel cake. The drama builds with a salted caramel crunch layer, a creamy custard layer and a sexy caramel finish.
The Sweet Street Caramel Granny Apple® features buttery caramel and toffee-studded custard hugging fresh Granny Smith apples, all piled high in our melt-in-
the-mouth shortbread crust.
And in an homage to that first cup of pudding we all enjoyed as kids, the Choc’late Lovin’ Spoon Cake® takes the rich, luscious flavor to a whole new level. It’s a giant mouthful of chocolate pudding between two layers of dark, chocolate-drenched chocolate cake.
Now is the perfect time to discover—or rediscover—the goodness of pudding and custard in your dessert offerings.
