Europe’s rich dessert tradition continues to innovate with the introduction of new ingredient combinations and the fusion of recipes from different countries.
However, classic sweets remain the most popular and are commonly consumed on the streets because they are easy to prepare and serve.
Among the most beloved sweet street foods in Europe, we find:
Belgian waffles are made with batter containing flour, milk, sugar, butter, and yeast. They are crispy on the outside and soft on the inside and are served with a variety of toppings, including chocolate, fruit, and whipped cream.
Baklava (Turkey and Balcans)
Pastéis de Nata or Pastel de Belém (Portugal)
Trdelník or kürtőskalács or Trdlo or Trozkol (Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary)
Also known as Chimney Cake, these are made with flour, water, milk, sugar, butter, and yeast. The cylindrical or spiral shape of the sweet is achieved by wrapping the dough around a wooden stick or cone before baking. They are usually rolled in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon and then filled with ice cream, chocolate, or other sweets.
Süße Brezeln (Germany and Austria)
This list, which could be expanded with many other typical European delicacies, represents the sweet version of the most popular street foods in Europe.
The immense variety of sweet delights, invented or reimagined on European soil, also presents a business opportunity for mobile food truck vendors.
Sweet Food Trucks on the Streets of Europe
Ice creams, sweets, and bakery products are suitable for street vending because they can almost always be prepared in advance and quickly served on the spot.
