Guilt Free Desserts
5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla and covered in 23K edible gold leaf, the sundae is drizzled with the world's most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela's coast. The masterpiece is suffused with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries. It is topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It's sweetened and infused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon to partake in the indulgence served with a petite mother of pearl spoon and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel.
Line Extensions Line extensions introduce additional items in the same product category under the same brand name, such as new flavors, forms, colors, added ingredients, and package sizes. Dannon introduced several Dannon yogurt line extensions, including fat-free light yogurt and dessert flavors such as mint chocolate cream pie. The vast majority of new products are actually line extensions. Co-branding takes a variety of forms. One is ingredient co-branding, as when Volvo advertises that it uses Michelin tires or Betty Crocker's brownie mix includes Hershey's chocolate syrup. Another form is same-company co-branding, as when General Mills advertises Trix and Yoplait yogurt. Still another form is joint venture co-branding, as in the case of General Electric and Hitachi lightbulbs in Japan and the MSNBC Web site from Microsoft and NBC. Finally, there is multiple-sponsor co-branding, as in the case of Taligent, a technological alliance of Apple, IBM, and Motorola.18

For SM the assortment for the catering market has grown. The company used to sell MD Foods' Danish cheeses at the same time as MD Foods sold SM's dessert cheeses to the retail market in Sweden. After the national cheese federation (Riksost) was dissolved, it became clear that SM initially had a poorly developed sales organization outside its core market (Scania). This, together with the fact that dessert cheeses demands a different sales approach than hard cheeses, made the change a positive one for SM. There was also an early attempt by SM to include milkshake from
Companies such as La Menorquina (previously Marisa), Frigo, and Miko started to launch products with formats (sizes and appearance) similar to those of Farggi, although without seeking to position themselves on the same high quality level. They sold at lower prices, with advertising backing, and provided the restaurants with menu cards showing the desserts. 6 Mousse flavors were fresh pears with truffled chocolate fresh lemon vanilla and Irish coffee dairy cream and fresh strawberries and chocolate with walnuts. The cheesecake flavors were bitter orange, cranberries, pineapple, and raspberries. In total, there were nine Stock Keeping Units (SKUs).
In 1992, Carvel introduced the Ice Cream Bakery concept to its customers. Under this program, the company continued to offer longtime favorites such as Cookie Puss and Fudgie the Whale, but also introduced a new product line that featured specialty cakes and novelty ice cream treats for special occasions. By focusing on creating Carvel ice cream as a bakery dessert item, Carvel hoped to reduce both the cyclical sale pattern of the company and the perception that an ice cream cake was only for special occasions. To this end, Carvel instituted its current mission statement choice for unique, quality frozen desserts by consistently exceeding customer expectations.
The co-operation between SM and MD Foods came to focus on sales of Danish cheese on the Swedish catering market and the sales of Swedish cheese in Germany and the US. MD Foods' Swedish subsidiary also sold SM's dessert cheese to the retailing sector. The co-operation concerning export of SM's products through MD Foods came to an end in 1996 since both companies felt it was difficult to obtain large enough volumes it became too difficult to sell competing products, to MD Foods' own ones, through the company's channels.
Beijing residents enjoyed a wide variety of dessert products. Besides ice cream products, there were numerous bakeries that offered a variety of traditional Chinese-designed cakes and pastries. These flour-based cakes were richly designed with traditional Chinese figures and styles and sold on average from 100 to 250 for an ornate wedding cake. Finally, the growth of McDonald's, Burger King, and Kentucky Fried Chicken had presented Carvel with other possible substitute products. More and more consumers were trying these fast food giants' own desserts, such as apple pies, shakes, and their own ice cream cups and sundaes. In short, there were a wide variety of dessert and snack treats from which Chinese consumers could choose. What concerned Phil Fang, though, was that all these alternative treats were cheaper and more widely recognized than his product line.
