Cross-Confection

Dessert flavoring crosses food forms and preconceived flavors

Implications - A subsection of flavor reversal, cross-confection is a pattern based in permissible indulgence. Previously, sweets were consumed in a more typically heavy format. Consumers looking to merge indulgence with smaller portions, as well as the novel experience all foodies crave, can satiate all needs with products flavored like classic confections.
