Charcuterie boards are growing in popularity, and they’re ideal for different innovations. A Pinterest report from 2021 found that dessert charcuterie boards in particular were being searched for 3x more often in relation to charcuterie boards.
With that in mind, Edible, the world’s largest franchisor of stores offering fresh fruit snacks, dipped treats and fruit arrangements, has announced the debut of dessert boards designed to feed a crowd and that can serve up to 15 people.
The new Edible Signature Dessert Board and Ultimate Dessert Board are available for order online and in Edible’s more than 900 stores, with pricing starting at $179.99. On June 20, a new Birthday Party Dessert Board with celebration cupcakes will also be available.
The boards include brownies, an assortment of cheesecake and cookies; fresh strawberries, pineapple, blueberries, grapes and orange slices; chocolate and vanilla cupcakes; chocolate and white chocolate swizzle strawberries, apple wedges and pineapple; and double dipped bananas. The Ultimate Dessert Board is larger and also includes peanut butter cups, Jordan crackers and pecan patties.
“Charcuterie boards are always a hit, and our new Edible dessert boards are a perfectly sweet complement for parties big or small,” says Angela Johnson, vice president of innovation and merchandising at Edible. “The dessert boards have something for everyone, whether your sweet tooth craves fresh fruit, chocolate, or a brownie, cookie, cupcake or cheesecake.”
