We want to talk about something else.


So let's explore food diversity and how it goes hand in hand with what we do here at Sweet Intuition.



What's food diversity?


Food diversity is basically when a variety of foods are consumed by a person or population, which can include different types of cuisines, ingredients, and dishes. 


That diversity allows those individuals from that population to create a balanced diet that includes a wide variety of foods with ranges of flavors, textures, and colors.


It leaves you to ponder what food diversity has to do with dessert. 



Food Diversity + Desserts = ????


Well, food diversity is an important part of desserts because it adds different flavors and textures from different regions or one's cultural perspectives. The incorporation of different ingredients into desserts can create unique and interesting combinations. 


Take, for example, one of our best-sellers Island blues.

The foundress being from the islands but growing up in this region chose to utilize fruits like blueberries which grow especially well in Maryland & the DMV, paired with fragrant guava, etc. found in the tropics. They knew the fruits had great nutritional properties & were a great way to remix those flavors to showcase their culture and bring new flavor profiles to the area. Their cultural diversity allows Sweet Intuition to bring food diversity in dessert/pastry form daily.



Is the demand for tropical & global desserts really that big?


The demand for global desserts in the United States has been growing for many years & will continue to grow for many reasons. Tropical desserts/pastries have become increasingly popular in the United States in recent years due to their unique flavor combinations and the influx of individuals who have cultural upbringings from tropical countries. Tropical flavors such as coconut, mango, pineapple, and guava offer an exciting and exotic twist to traditional desserts, and they’re also packed with health benefits like vitamins and antioxidants. 


With the growing interest in global cuisine and the increasing availability of tropical ingredients, it's no wonder why these sweet treats are becoming so popular! Sources like Consumer goods & FMCG., Statistica &, etc. show this is not a trend and is here to stay.


 Another reason is people are becoming more adventurous with their food choices and want to try new flavors and cultures. Global desserts are a great way to explore the cuisine of different countries without having to travel there or to remind you of home. 


In addition, the internet has made it easier for people to find locations like Sweet Intuition that offer such desserts. We bring forth the availability of creating remixed, & traditional pastries/desserts from our kitchen to your doorstep. Allowing others to try new desserts & flavor profiles without having to invest time and energy into baking them. 


All of these factors have contributed to the growing demand for global desserts in the United States.



How do you experience food diversity in dessert form?


One great way to experience food diversity in dessert form is to try places like Sweet Intuition & etc. that utilize those different ingredients from different cultures in their creations. No matter what route you choose, I'm sure to have a delicious and diverse dessert experience at any of those places. Bakeries like these can help you experience food diversity in dessert form by offering a variety of cultural pastries and desserts! Not only do they offer delicious traditional American desserts like cookies and cakes, but they can also offer traditional cultural desserts from cultures around the world!


How does this all go hand in hand with what we do at Sweet Intuition...


Its simple food diversity is a part of our upbringing and a vital part of how we can create awesome creations for the public to enjoy. Whether is a nostalgic favorite we grew up eating here or one of our background. We are not trying to reinvent the wheel we are operating from a multi-faceted background. We love to play on flavors & are bringing our take on things we grew up enjoying to share with the world in dessert form.
