The Sweet Street "Sweet Ride" dessert mobile, loaded with thousands of Sweet Street treats, made its debut at Union Square on Saturday, where more than 5,000 free samples were handed out to passersby in conjunction with partners Barnes & Noble and ShopRite, the latter the first retailer to carry the company's new Pipeables™ Mousse Kits, which retails for $11.99. Additional retailer partners will be announced soon.

The launch of Pipeables™ Mousse Kits marks Sweet Street's entre into the consumer market, selling directly to customers at grocery stores nationwide.  Pipeables™ Mousse Kits help time-starved entertainers and home chefs present great desserts for building a party or bringing fun to the family table.  Each kit contains two companion flavors of silky mousse and eight serving cups, perfect for making parfaits or filling, decorating or creating gorgeous desserts.
