Udstiller: Y3K, LLC, Suite T1/Y2, 44 Cocoanut Row, USA- Palm Beach Florida 33480
Y3K, an award winning American cult brand from beautiful Palm Beach Florida, is pleased to announce that it will be launching the first of a new range mousse cakes at Foodexpo in Herning March 18 to 20 on Stand K8125. The first - Cosmic Cookie Mousse Cake™ – is a cookies and cream mousse made from America’s two top selling cookies – Oreos and Chocolate Chip – lavished with even more cookies.
Ice cream is the number 1 selling dessert across the world accounting for very roughly half of dessert sales. However a vast number of outlets are effectively prohibited from selling ice cream due to a lack of freezer space (such as coffee shops), difficulty of getting the product from the freezer to the guest at the right temperature for service (airlines, home delivered pizza or high volume banqueting) or the sensitivity of guests to the cold of deep frozen products.
Moreover most mousse, bavarois and chilled dairy products that are sold commercially or prepared by chefs are made from powder and water, have a relatively low spec (low fat, low solids) and are typically marketed in traditional flavors without the wildly exciting chunky varieties of modern ice cream brands that consumers now demand.
Conversely the ice cream market has found that by making products richer with more solids (ice cream is water and solids with solids giving the product more mouthfeel), more intense fun and funky chunk laden natural flavors and cleaner labels consumers could be tempted to indulge without price restraint, identify with the brand and outlet that serves it and clamor for more. High end so called superpremium ice cream has been the fastest growing segment of the ice cream market over the last few decades and now accounts for roughly 1/3 of ice cream sales from nothing in mid 1900s.
Y3K is applying ice cream technology to patisserie and will be launching at Foodexpo a range of desserts that are effectively superpremium ice cream but which can be served without a freezer in a chilled cabinet or for limited periods at ambient and thaw quickly being ready to eat in about 30minutes depending on kitchen conditions.
We will be greatly expanding the market and in essence providing businesses such as coffee shops and cafes access to the ice cream market (broadly speaking the 50% of dessert sales) where they have been long been denied.
Airlines have always served ice cream but have struggled. The packaging requires special handling and additional space in an environment where every inch and every pound is at a premium and (assuming the frozen state is maintained) the products are rock hard and incapable of being eaten when served to the guest. We offer something that eats as well or better than the best of ice cream without the need of dry ice – it can be plated, allowed to thaw and eaten at ambient depending on the timing.
Similarly for home delivery, banqueting, room service etc. where the length of time between plating and service makes it so difficult to get the product to the customer at the right temperature our desserts offer an ideal solution.
The mousse is handmade from fresh cream with all natural ingredients. It is richer with more solids like a mousse made in a chef’s kitchen from scratch not from powder and water.
The cakes come frozen with a 2 year shelf life – and can be kept in a freezer ready for banqueting or party use on short notice – and a 5 day life once thawed (plus a number of hours at ambient).
The cakes pre-portioned giving the operator control over wastage and de-skilling the serving process.
So many of the bavarois desserts in the chilled cabinet are so serious and frilly. Our Cosmic Cookie desserts are designed to appeal to the passion for good food combined with a dose of fun and whimsy that marries fine dining and candy store indulgence with gonzo branding to create the excitement and passion that has driven the ice cream market for the last few decades.
