Gather Around Holiday Pies- The Comeback of the Comfort Food
Supermarket Perimeter's recent article "Holiday Pies: Meeting the need for comfort foods worth planning a gathering around" talks about the revival of pies during smaller and socially distanced holiday gatherings. Inspired by this topic, it led to question: what can we offer customers so that they can embrace the feel-good dessert this holiday season?
With the popularity of smaller sizes and grab-and-go options on the rise, many customers are searching for ease and comfort. Our assortment of ready-to-fill tarts are available in a variety of personal and miniature sizes that can be personalized with sweet or savory fillings. Perfect for creating an assortment platter, sold as individual bite sized snacks, or customized according to customer preference.
Larger sizes are also available in 7", 8.6”, and 11” options for family parties. Easily fill with pastry cream, top with fruit, create layers, or garnish with festive decorations. Birthday cakes- move aside!
Traditional pies like apple and pumpkin are great, but are you looking for creative flavor pairings to reach a wider audience? Our Dreidoppel Flavor Pastes make experimenting with flavors easier than ever before! Use liquor flavors to add a kick to a pecan or chocolate pie, or floral flavors to accent light fruity flavors and citrus curds. The combinations are endless and are sure to attract even the most particular of flavor cravers.
