The nostalgia trend is continuing to delight and attract shoppers throughout the aisles, and Cascade Glacier is one of the latest producers to hit that demand. Recently, the frozen treats purveyor debuted a new dairy-free sorbet that tastes like Jolly Ranchers™ and Starburst®—a sweet and tart throwback of our childhood—in its Dairy-Free Sour Splash.
“Over the past year, we’ve seen an increase in interest from consumers for nostalgic flavors and novelties. The inspiration behind Sour Splash taps into the love for classic sweets and offers a fun escape for customers. Plus, the creamy consistency and allergen-friendly recipe will allow foodservice retailers to delight both dairy and dairy-free customers,” said Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Joelle Simmons.
As stated in the release, the trend towards nostalgic flavors saw a surge during the height of the pandemic as consumers craved comfort from food and beverages. According to Kerry’s Global Taste Chart report, this trend will persist throughout 2021 in products from sweets to salty snacks.
With new and improved innovation, Cascade Glacier has cracked the code on a creamy dairy-free sorbet. Cascade Glacier’s new Sour Splash has a luscious mouthfeel, scoopable texture, and isn’t icy compared to traditional sorbets.
The Cascade Glacier brand is known for colorful, fun flavors and over 50 options for foodservice retailers to choose from. With swirls of tangy dairy-free green apple, watermelon, and lemon sorbet, the bright colors will stand out in any scoop shop case and capture the attention of kids and adults alike.
As consumers start to travel and take summer vacations, they can find the new Sour Splash flavor at popular destinations like national parks, waterparks, and tourist destinations.
