Having identified Millennial consumer tastes trending toward a passion for coffee and tea beverages, Symrise now offers a collection of specialty flavors designed to deliver the popular tastes of coffee and tea to dairy products—including milkshakes, yogurts, ice cream, and more.
This new collection provides a gateway to a unique and fully indulgent, authentic taste adventure to lovers of these beverages through a variety of flavors for dairy applications that expand beyond the known, and following the trend wave.
Symrise developed this creative coffee and tea flavor collection based, in part, on the flavor trend from their proprietary consumer insight study they have identified as “Conserve, Preserve. Shaken or Stirred” wherein processing, mixing, and infusing sometimes opposing ingredients together transforms flavor profiles to create something uniquely new. The combination of unusual, rare ingredients and special sourcing together with a unique process, creative composition, and an intriguing story has been showing success for dairy products, especially outside of the usual flavors and applications.
“Consumers are looking for that premium experience in their food, which means pushing the boundaries on taste,” says Ian Thurston, senior category manager-Sweet, at Symrise. “Our collection goes beyond what is expected in coffee and tea flavors, utilizing café favorites and unique tastes that pair perfectly with dairy indulgences.”
Complex, high-intensity flavors including hazelnut and amaretto, salted caramel, cold brew mocha, and hibiscus blossom chai latte in the coffee category; and matcha, chocolate, vanilla earl grey, and white peach for tea, help bolster the experience of the flavor within the dairy product.
Not only are these strong flavors meant to impart a pleasurable taste sensation, they also serve practical benefits, including masking any astringent or sour notes that are challenging for these dairy applications. The result is a collection of flavors that elevates dairy with the authentic taste of barista-brewed tea and coffee and opens the door to new, more indulgent applications for an eager consumer base.
