Spicy Over Sweet

Hispanic demand for more savory sweets is changing the way consumers see candy

Implications - Adding more interest and flavor to sweet goods, a Hispanic tendency to favor spicy confectionary products with more complex flavors is influencing the food industry. Reflecting the understanding that Hispanics prefer stronger scents and tastes, this approach to flavor is causing consumers to see sweets as more complex culinary products.
