Sales Building Insights

Even as more and more people look to healthier options, commercial desserts, foodservice desserts and retail desserts remain in demand. In fact, 99% of American consumers eat dessert, and 70% do so at least once a week – an increase from 57% just three years ago. Part of the reason, operators are finding new ways to cater to the more health conscious. Bite-sized and individual desserts and commercial dessert bars are an ideal way for people to indulge while still maintaining “healthy” portions. Not so surprisingly, 1/3 of customers say they are more likely to order desserts that are available as individual desserts or individual frozen desserts.

Ingredients also play a key role with these conscientious diners with Greek yogurt and whole grains playing a big part in their decisions. Some suggestions for using better-for-you ingredients:

  • Use Greek yogurt for cheesecake filling
  • Use whole grains/alternative flours for baking
  • Use fruits and nuts as dessert toppings and flavor enhancements

60% of consumers express interest in seasonal desserts.1
