Implications - As health-conscious consumers look to make the most of their caloric indulgences, confectionery offerings are being elevated to upscale experiences with the addition of innovative flavor combinations and artistic visual appeal.

This progression demonstrates the far-reaching nature of the desire for flavor reversal, as well as the view to a direct link between high-quality ingredients and artisan appeal.
