Fruit-Filled Donut Croissants

The Chocolate Drizzled Strawberry Croissant Donut is a Hybrid Treat

— July 3, 2017 — Lifestyle
With hybrid pastries remaining a popular choice among consumers, Dunkin' Donuts has revealed a brand new Chocolate Drizzled Strawberry Croissant Donut for the summer 2017 season. With a seasonal fruit filling and the light and flaky texture of a croissant, the sweet treat is the perfect option for warm summer days.

The Chocolate Drizzled Strawberry Croissant Donut is a hybrid pastry that combines the circular shape of a traditional donut with the flaky, buttery layers commonly associated with croissants. The inside is then piped with a fruity strawberry filling, while the outside is covered in a sweet glaze and decadent chocolate icing drizzle. The new croissant donut is also available alongside the new S’mores Donut, which combines a toasted marshmallow-flavored filling along with a s’mores topping made from real Hershey’s chocolate.
Trend Themes
1. Hybrid Pastries - There is an opportunity for bakeries and food companies to continue to create unique hybrid pastries that combine different flavors and textures to appeal to consumers.
2. Seasonal Fruit Fillings - There is potential for ingredient suppliers to develop innovative and convenient fruit fillings that can be used in a variety of pastries, providing a refreshing and fruity taste to consumers.
3. Decadent Toppings - Companies can explore creating indulgent and visually appealing toppings, such as chocolate drizzles and glazes, to enhance the sensory experience of pastries and attract customers.
Industry Implications

2. Food Manufacturing - Food manufacturers have the opportunity to develop and produce convenient, pre-made fruit fillings that can be used by bakeries and food retailers to create a wide range of pastries quickly and efficiently.
3. Confectionery - Confectionery companies can explore creating innovative and visually appealing toppings and glazes to enhance the taste and visual appeal of pastries, attracting customers and staying ahead of competitors.
