Special offer: now 20% off original full report price

The U.S. chocolate market is indisputably dynamic due to new thinking by leading marketers, an influx of creative new players, and a steady flow of new products that engage diverse groups of consumers. While the better-for-you snacking trend influences this market, particularly with dark chocolate and healthy or “superfood” ingredient inclusions, chocolate candy retains its fan base and appeal as an everyday affordable indulgence, creating many opportunities to trade consumers up to premium products.

  • Detailed analysis of marketing and new product trends, including illustrations of recent new product introductions
