Elevating Comforts

Sophisticated ice cream concoctions add excitement to familiar indulgences

Implications - While comfort foods often provide consumers with a sense of familiarity and satisfaction, the exposure to diverse cultural elements via mass media has promoted individuals to crave much more varied consumption options. Seeking to provide consumers with the allure of traditional goods with a new and stimulating edge, brands are revamping such classic items as ice cream with more sophisticated elements to expand market appeal beyond traditionally youthful groups. By adding exotic ingredients and elegant aesthetics to comforting desserts, brands seek to cultivate traditional goods with more refined touches, appealing to a demand for increased product variation.
