Comfort Foods Trend — Classic Desserts Revisited
The economic climate has provided momentum to the increasingly popular comfort foods trend. Beginning with savory foods like macaroni and cheese and meatloaf, it has now broadened to sweet baked goods with new twists on classic flavors and forms, helping to remind people of a simpler time. It is all about taking the familiar and bringing it to life in fun, innovative ways. Dawn Foods’ proprietary study, Dawn 360 Bakery Trends for Today & Beyond, has tracked the comfort foods

trend from upscale dining and trendy specialty bakeries through the grocery channel to identify what’s next in the bakery. Dawn’s research shows how familiar flavors like vanilla have become indulgent — think Tahitian vanilla or Madagascar Bourbon vanilla — giving consumers an opportunity to indulge in something upscale while remaining within their comfort zones.

Specialist at Dawn Foods. For example, whoopie pie or s’mores dessert cakes and cinnamon roll muffins create craving with shoppers, while some bakeries add a slice of bacon or sprinkle fruity cereal as donut toppings to generate impulse purchases. Try promoting these fun combinations for everyday snacking or to make special occasions more memorable. And don’t forget that current items in your bakery can also play to the popularity of comfort foods. Red velvet cake has become a top flavor in the bakery, and the popularity has carried beyond cupcakes into cookies and donuts. What a great opportunity to remind shoppers of this familiar treat, making your bakery a comforting destination for shoppers. Find out how to make comfort foods work in your bakery. Contact your Dawn Foods representative for more information on the Dawn 360 study.

“Incorporating a little nostalgia in a new and different way can help make your bakery an exciting destination for your customers.”
What’s up next? Some old favorites are making inroads with instore bakeries, as well as anything that’s sticky, gooey, irresistible and easy to share. “Incorporating a little nostalgia in a new and different way can help make your bakery an exciting destination for your customers,” states Mark Bastian, Product
