Strawberries

The classic berry we all think of when we hear the word. Strawberries are sweet, tart, and tender leading to some of the best bites. We use these fruits to make a rich filling for sweet goods like our Strawberry Filled Crepes. Strawberry flavors make their way into our DOTS, too, with our assortment of Pink Dots and PopDots having a strawberry flavor just as bright as its color!
Strawberries make a great addition to our brioche too. They cut the richness of the brioche just right to make a delicious dessert, such as our Strawberry & Chocolate-Hazelnut Toast.

Raspberries

Raspberries in Western Europe reach their prime during the summer, which helps make our pastries delicious, whether from Spain or Portugal. Our Jelly-Filled BallDots bring raspberries to a blissful, jammy goodness. And our Raspberry Bretzels have a sweet yet sharp filling, getting the perfect balance to these buttery danishes. Even though it鈥檚 a pastry, that raspberry filling is the dominant ingredient, ensuring it’s full of fruit flavor in every bite.
Not only do raspberries go great with brioche, but they pair perfectly with warm spices like cinnamon. That鈥檚 why we鈥檝e put them together into a Cinnamon Raspberry French Toast.

Mixed Berries

We can鈥檛 forget to love blueberries, especially since they鈥檙e the only one of these three that are considered berries!聽 Blueberries, blackberries, and more raspberries make up the delicious filling for our Authentic French Mixed Berry Beignets.聽 These fried dough desserts are packed with flavor thanks to their berry centers.But if you鈥檙e looking for something different, we have another mixed berry treat that鈥檚 easy to make and tastes delicious.聽 A simple yet elegant Berries & Cream Bagel makes for a delightful breakfast or snack and only takes 5 minutes!

 

There are all sorts of delicious berries out there, with some fruits you didn鈥檛 even know were considered berries.聽 But no matter what, they鈥檙e all just as delicious.聽 Enjoy berry season, and be sure to savor the sweetness!
