Bite-Sized Tradition Consumers condense holiday meals into sweets to aid an on-the-go lifestyle Implications - With the hectic lifestyle of most adult consumers, participating in conventional holiday activities can be challenging. Seeking to indulge in the familiarity of holiday dishes in a more convenient manner, consumers are turning to condensed desserts that infuse festive flavors into more compact, and easy-to-make goods. Infusing the essence of holiday meals into ordinary sweets combines the comfort of home-cooked goods with the need for more accessible, on-the-go indulgences.
