Fruits offer guilt-free sweetness as well as a scrumptious way to beat the heat in the summertime. Take your customers on a journey around the world with exciting fruit flavors like passion fruit, dragon fruit, prickly pear, and açaí, but don’t forget about beloved classics like strawberry and orange. At Giraffe Foods, we offer delicious fruit flavors like these as beverage concentrates, which you can dilute with water to craft crave-able, flavor-forward drinks. We can also elevate these fabulously fruity beverages with floral flavors, like hibiscus, rose, lavender, orange blossom, cherry blossom, and elderflower. Who wouldn’t like a dash of flower power?To relax after busy days, many modern consumers are looking for non-alcoholic drink options. But whether you’re aiming for boozy beverages or alcohol-free drinks, our talented team is ready to help you create the flavors of tomorrow.
Enjoyment can take so many different forms: pleasure, entertainment, recreation, joy, fun, relaxation, comfort . . . On a daily basis, consumers are seeking these emotions, and sweetly flavored drinks can satisfy that yearning at every time of day. Modern consumers love to drink their favorite desserts, from over-the-top coffee-based drinks to vibrant smoothies. In the middle of a busy day, an on-the-go dessert drink can bring a little extra joy to everyday life. Many consumers prefer these beverages to be on the smaller side – they hit the spot without wasting a gulp or stirring up guilt.Mixing and matching flavors between food formats – especially in convenient food formats like to-go drinks – is a winning strategy to help you sell more. Pair that delightful strawberry scone with a chocolate-covered strawberry smoothie – yum! In addition, consider how you might use a single product in multiple menu items for efficiency. Dark Chocolate Sauce might be stirred into an iced latte, drizzled on muffins, or act as a dip for churros. Cinnamon-Infused Maple Syrup could be mixed into an autumn-inspired cocktail, provide a glaze for pumpkin cheesecake, or be drizzled atop mini apple cakes. Leverage these flavors to create unique, memorable menu items.
Efficiency can take other forms as well. You could pinpoint two staple ingredients, like coffee and chocolate, and go wild creating flavor combinations based around them: a classic mocha with a Mexican spice twist, dreamy hot chocolate affogato, biscotti paired with a chocolate-espresso dipping sauce . . .The talented team of culinologists at Giraffe Foods can work with you to create a variety of premium, crave-worthy beverage solutions for satisfyingly sweet drinks:
