Berries add beauty, flavor and antioxidants to springtime desserts.
One of the first signs of spring may be the appearance of berries on the menu. According to Datassential raspberries are in about a quarter of desserts offered in March, April and May, and strawberries are in about half.
Berries have become not only a welcome harbinger of the awakening season, but also a sought-after dessert, dessert flavor or garnish, especially appealing to those looking for a better-for-you indulgence. For example, strawberries have a healthy amount of vitamin C and blueberries are a super fruit loaded with flavor and antioxidants.
Blackberry, was recently named The Flavor of the Year, named by Swiss flavor company Firmenich. Because blackberries are ripe, sweet, juicy, spicy and floral, they work beautifully to bring fabulous taste and health benefits to spring menus. In fact, Sweet Street mixes blackberry with California cabernet to make a cheesecake with complex sweetness and a whisper of acidity. This, alongside other luscious desserts highlighting strawberry, cherry, raspberry and blueberry will be craved by patrons as the weather warms and the seasons change.
Sweet Street offers a berry-strewn citrus-flecked cake stacked with a layer of white chocolate cheesecake and lime curd. This Summerberry Stack®, though marvelous year ‘round, captures the fresh flavors customers are looking for. Sweet Street also offers a rich Carrot Cake and an array of tartly sophisticated lemon desserts, including Lemonade Cake made with Meyer Lemon Curd and Lemonberry Jazzbars® punctuated with blueberries.
The Dessert Consumer Trend Report, a study from Technomic, showed that there is opportunity for flavors---including berries---in restaurant desserts. Consumers want more flavors in cheesecakes beyond the traditional plain. And many consumers who listed fruit said they wanted fresh, high-quality fruit. Many of the indulgences offered by Sweet Street start with fresh berries, globally sourced ingredients and locally sourced dairy.
