Today's Top Trends

The success of chocolate across all dayparts gives you plenty of opportunities to put your own creative twist on today’s latest trends.

Trends worth capitalizing on:

1. Breakfast

“Breakfast has been and is projected to continue to be a bright spot for the restaurant industry,” said Bonnie Riggs, NPD’s restaurant industry analyst. In fact, about 1 billion morning meals are served every month by U.S. restaurants.1 Bringing HERSHEY’S branded ingredients to breakfast is a great way to set your menu apart!

2. Mini-Desserts

This variation of the small-plate rage is sure to set you apart and get your patrons talking. Mini-dessert flights allow them to taste, share and compare flavors and formats—minus the guilt.

3. Ice Cream

Ice cream is a top dessert on menus, according to Technomics.2 From sundaes to frozen novelties, this timeless treat is still a favorite with every age, in every season. Plus it’s the perfect palette for your creative customizations!
