Botanical Refreshment

Consumers turn to floral-infused indulgences as a health compromise

Implications - More than simply elevating aesthetics, botanical additions to dessert infuse a sense of freshness to otherwise processed or preservative-heavy indulgences. While flavor experimentation is on the rise when it comes to savory dishes, the sweet side has seen a return to natural, delicate flavors that are "of the earth," referencing a consumer desire for balance when it comes to health and wellness.
