The holidays prompt an influx of consumable products for customers attending restaurants. Limitations have followed with what companies can offer in 2020, as Covid-19 continued to pander international consumers from accessing desirable products. Restaurants sustaining the fast-food format are better equipped at handling the pandemic, permitting continued innovations & returning treats. Numerous companies have announced consumable goods with holiday flavour profiles. Peppermint has become the defining flavour selected by corporate innovators, with two companies bringing back their Peppermint treats. Dairy Queen & the Cheesecake Factory will battle for consumer acquisition with these consumable goods.
First to reintroduce their consumable good was Dairy Queen, which confirmed that the “Peppermint Hot Cocoa Blizzard” is coming back after performing admirably in 2019. It’ll mark the third consecutive years that Dairy Queen has released this Blizzard flavour for customers. Individuals purchasing Peppermint Blizzards will receive the traditional soft-serve ice-cream associated with Dairy Queen. There’ll also be chunks of cocoa, creamy fudge, pieces of the candy cane, and whipped Peppermint in this Blizzard. The collective of ingredients creates a sensational treat with authentic flavour profiles towards the holidays. Sizing options available for the “Peppermint Hot Cocoa Blizzard” includes Mini, Small, Medium, and Large.
Combating Dairy Queen is the Cheesecake Factory, an iconic restaurant that’s defined their image around a single dessert. Multiple iterations of Cheesecake is available for consumption, with the corporate division regularly introducing new flavours themed around specific holidays or events in the United States. The Cheesecake Factory released the “Peppermint Bark Cheesecake” in 2019, which saw higher sales than anticipated.
It’d led the corporate division to reintroduce this delicious treat, which has been upscaled for 2020. Customers can purchase individual slices of the “Peppermint Bark Cheesecake” for lowered prices. However, the corporate division hopes consumers will buy the 10-Inch Cake that’s available at restaurant locations & partnered retail brands like Walmart. Associated costs to purchasing this Cake is high at $29.99.
