32 Pre-Packaged Dessert Innovations

From Decadent Dessert Popcorn to Sugar-Free Donut Packs

— September 12, 2016 — Lifestyle
These pre-packaged dessert innovations range from decadent dessert popcorn to sugar-free donut packs that are offered in convenient single-free packages. While examples like Noshu's handmade donuts allow consumers with a sweet tooth to indulge without the guilt, other standouts like a packaged chocolate hummus dip -- developed by Delighted by Hummus blog founders -- remix a traditionally savory food garnish into something that is more decadent.

When looking at other best-selling pre-packaged desserts, the prevalence of flavored popcorn is evident with examples like cinnamon roll, candied cookie and strawberry-infused products.

Additional standouts in this realm include branded artisanal pastries, like Starbucks' recent collaboration with Natalie's Cakes that includes packaged baked goods with a homemade look and feel.
