It’s safe to say that the past two years have changed the food and beverage industry dramatically. Some leaders have left the company. Restaurants have closed. New restaurants have opened in their place. And a whole host of new ventures have been started by kitchen and reception staff who suddenly find themselves rudderless in a locked down world.

For Diss’ Simon Woodrow, who just launched Wood Row Chocolate with partner Jessie Forbes, 2020 and 2021 have been a wake-up call.

Simon led the kitchen team at the multi-award-winning Leaping Hare in Stanton, having worked at the vineyard restaurant for nearly 20 years, rising through the ranks from pot washer to head chef.

Jessie also had 16 years under her belt at Wyken.

“We are part of the furniture,” jokes Simon who says that after the first lockdown he went back to work and thought everything would be fine. But there were more restrictions to follow and unfortunately family members were lost.

“It made me reevaluate my priorities,” says Simon. “I had sacrificed a lot of time in the kitchen when I could have spent it with my family. I wanted to get away from that. »

Not one to sit on his hands, Simon started experimenting in his kitchen at home and found a love for chocolate making.

“It’s something I’ve always wanted to try. I’ve always wondered how chocolatiers get such exquisite designs on candies. Being in confinement, I had no one to ask. I searched the internet for answers and got stuck. [chocolate making] attracted me more and more as I progressed and I found it really relaxing. A cathartic process from start to finish.

While there were, admittedly, a few disasters along the way, Simon was happy enough with the end results this year that he and Jessie decided to start their own artisan chocolate business, building a dedicated chocolate kitchen in their home. and register to sell at the Wyken Farmers’ Market on the first and fourth weekend of each month. Boxes have also been released on her Wood_Row_Chocolate Instagram account for local delivery. And you can order by emailing info@woodrowchocolate.co.uk

Their first market didn’t quite go to plan. “It was terrible weather – usually the market was hectic, but I think everyone decided to stay home,” Simon recalled, adding that they still managed to sell many sweets, including dulce de leche miso brownies, filled chocolate bars and dark chocolate. slabs.

At the heart of Wood Row Chocolate, however, are bright, beautifully decorated candies, made with Callebaut and Cacao Barry chocolate, and high-quality toppings backed by the chef’s expertise.

“I was committed to buying the best ingredients from day one,” says Simon. “It’s about making something really delicious that people will enjoy. I’ve always worked like that in restaurants too. If you want to do something, make it the best you can.

The first chocolate Simon was happy with was his Three Layer Passion Fruit Cheesecake, and a variation of that will still be available from Wood Row. “It made me discover what was possible and how many flavors you could fit into a chocolate. I add a passion fruit pâté de fruit, a cream cheese and vanilla ganache, and a base cookies made from powdered cookies with chocolate and cocoa butter for a bit of crunch.

“And the passion fruit and mango marshmallow filling was interesting. I had to learn how to make marshmallow without egg white to help with shelf life, and it was paired with passion fruit and mango ganache.

The rest of the menu reads like a dessert lover’s dream. Dulce de leche swirled with espresso. Blood orange cheesecake. Crispy cocoa nibs with hazelnut gianduja. Baked apple pie (baked apple fruit pâté with honey and cinnamon ganache). And another that took Simon by surprise.

“It’s an apricot fruit pâté with a layer of pistachio and crispy cocoa and honey with a cinnamon ganache on top. The taste is almost like a baklava. I thought it would be unusual, but it works.

While Simon shapes the chocolates, the business has also allowed Jessie to show her creative side. “She’s very arty,” says Simon. “For example, she designed our logo and even pyrographed it on our wooden displays and signs. It looks great.”

You can find Wood Row Chocolate at Wyken Farmers’ Market on March 26.

For now, the couple, says Simon, are keeping the business small and simple, to ensure excellence in everything they do. “We want it to be humble. We are not looking to change the world. It’s just a great chance for us to do something creative. I can’t wait to see where this will take us.

We’ve compared Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate to Asda, Tesco and even Galaxy – Ivan Morris Poxton https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/weve-compared-cadburys-dairy-milk-chocolate-to-asda-tesco-and-even-galaxy-ivan-morris-poxton/ Sat, 05 Mar 2022 20:39:30 +0000 https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/weve-compared-cadburys-dairy-milk-chocolate-to-asda-tesco-and-even-galaxy-ivan-morris-poxton/ Chocolate, the ultimate comfort food, perfect for relaxing away from work or as a quick snack throughout the day, and the safe and reliable gift for anyone’s partner.

Chocolate, the ultimate comfort food, perfect for relaxing away from work or as a quick snack throughout the day, and the safe and reliable gift for anyone’s partner. It is a glorious food.

But what is the best eatable milk chocolate bar that you can easily buy at your local supermarket? Does Cadbury Dairy Milk really measure up to the test?

It’s a question that can create considerable debate at the local pub, so I’ve been recruited to provide my own expert opinion – I am, after all, a bit of a chocolate connoisseur.

To read the latest food and beverage content, click here

Either that or my editor took pity on me after asking me last time to try different varieties of baked beans.

In total I bought five different brands of milk chocolate bars, all from different supermarkets.

And then I just ate every bar – no drinks or food accompaniments to cloud my judgement.

I have to state publicly that I really love chocolate and my current favorite brand is Cadbury Dairy Milk Fruit and Nut.

To keep things simple for this, I bought pure milk chocolate brands.

Below are my uncensored thoughts on each, in the order I tried them and supplemented with pricing information.

Tesco



Tesco Milk Chocolate provided a decent offer.

Tesco’s own brand milk chocolate bar costs £0.95 for 200g.

The packaging describes the chocolate as “silky and smooth” and in fact, it lives up to that billing.

There was a pleasant warmth to the chocolate, without it being too rich in flavor.

It also wasn’t too big to start chewing right away, once I put a piece in my mouth.

It was a solid milk chocolate bar and the brand sources some of its cocoa from sustainable suppliers through the Rainforest Alliance.

The only issue I had with this bar was its packaging.

A little dull to the eye and encouraged sharing the chocolate with others with the text “perfect for sharing” on the cover.

For me, sharing a chocolate bar is a crazy idea.

7/10.

Cadbury dairy milk



I'm sorry Cadbury Dairy Milk ever doubted you - again this wasn't an exhaustive list of all the brands of milk chocolate available in stores in Hull so perhaps there is a better milk chocolate bar?  Obviously, more research is needed.
I’m sorry Cadbury Dairy Milk ever doubted you – again this wasn’t an exhaustive list of all the brands of milk chocolate available in stores in Hull so perhaps there is a better milk chocolate bar? Obviously, more research is needed.

It is the number one chocolate in the UK and reportedly sold over 71 million packs in 2020.

This particular 110g bar can be bought at Sainsbury’s for £1.50

In case you aren’t aware of Cadbury’s origins, it started in 1824 when John Cadbury opened a shop in Birmingham selling tea, coffee and drinking chocolate.

The latter was so popular that he opened a dedicated chocolate shop on the outskirts of Birmingham.

The first box of chocolates was also produced by Cadbury’s in 1868, although these were other candies coated in cocoa powder.

Anyway, back to the chocolate bar itself, it has earned its place at the top of the chocolate tree.

It has a wonderfully lush creamy taste and texture. This is milk chocolate at its finest and you had to see some of the competition.

10/10.

Galaxy creamy milk



Galaxy Smooth Milk was not a galaxy away from claiming first place, but didn't win the top prize for me.
Galaxy Smooth Milk was not a galaxy away from claiming first place, but didn’t win the top prize for me.

The second most popular chocolate brand in the UK in 2021 – could it compete with its illustrious rival? Unfortunately, not quite.

Don’t get me wrong, this is still a great chocolate bar and at 100g for £1 it gives you more chocolate for your money.

But he’s trying too hard.

It’s just a little too rich and the shape of each piece of chocolate shows that – this bar I’m sure has the biggest rise from bottom to top, as it’s filled with filling.

I think partly because of the bigger increase – and in all honesty being crushed under a notebook for a few days in my backpack – it was also the candy bar that I kind of struggled to separate cleanly into allocated pieces.

If you’re on a budget and want lush chocolate, this makes a good replacement for Cadbury.

8/10.

Budgens Euroshopper Milk Chocolate



The cheapest brand of milk chocolate I tried was also the worst.
The cheapest brand of milk chocolate I tried was also the worst.

Well, it was the cheapest chocolate bought, at £0.50 for 90g.

Thank goodness I didn’t go for the bigger version, because that was also kind of the worst.

It didn’t melt much in my mouth, required a bit of chewing, and frankly, tasted lousy.

I had to double check the label due to the bitter taste to make sure I hadn’t bought dark chocolate by mistake.

This is a brand of chocolate I will never go back to.

Being generous, I’ll give it 3/10.

Asda



Asda Milk Chocolate proved to be a worthy candidate - and bonus points for being part of the Rainforest Alliance.
Asda Milk Chocolate proved to be a worthy candidate – and bonus points for being part of the Rainforest Alliance.

A late addition to the chocolate taste testing team and luckily helped me finish the challenge on an uplifting note.

This one tasted quite similar to Tesco, but had nicer packaging.

No wishy-washy feelings suggesting sharing the chocolate too.

Instead, this chocolate bar’s communications team clearly seems to see eating chocolate on equal footing with drinking illicit beverages, with the label text saying, “Come on, nobody’s watching. “

I don’t care if anyone saw me scoffing at a chocolate bar and would like to think I represent the majority opinion with that view.

Asda milk chocolate also carries a clear Rainforest Alliance cocoa label.

It sells for £0.95 for 200g – so it’s actually better value for money than Euroshopper.

8/10.

General verdict:

Cadbury Dairy Milk: 10/10

Asda milk chocolate: 8/10

Galaxy creamy milk: 8/10

Tesco milk chocolate: 7/10

Budgens Euroshopper Milk Chocolate: 3/10.

Cadbury Dairy Milk came out on top in this taste test, despite facing (some) stiff competition.

The less we talk about Euroshopper, the better.

Yet there are many other brands of milk chocolate waiting to be consumed.

So maybe there’s a worthy Cadbury Dairy Milk challenger that I haven’t tried myself yet.

Obviously, more research is needed.

Let us know in the comments your thoughts on the best chocolate bar readily available at your local supermarket.

Keep little ones entertained as they search for delicious Easter treats.

Is there a spring holiday more magical than Easter? The little ones are sure to enjoy all the chocolate treats the Easter Bunny has left behind. From small chocolate pen pals to a decadent Extra Thick Pastry Easter Egg, he is ready to make this Easter Sunday the best yet. Why not add an extra element of fun by hosting an Easter egg hunt for the kids to enjoy.

Don’t forget to hide a bit something for youtoo…

[Link]

Organize an Easter egg hunt

An Easter egg hunt is a pretty simple activity – hide some chocolate treats for the kids to find and you’ll be good to go. However, here are some tips to make sure it works as well as possible.

Indoor or outdoor?

The first thing to consider is where you want to hold your Easter egg hunt. If the forecast is good, you can install the path in your garden. Or, if you don’t have outdoor space at home, you can round up other family friends and all head to your local park.

Of course, there is inevitably a risk of spring rain in the UK! But that’s okay, you can also create a delicious Easter egg hunt indoors, whether in one room or throughout the house. Inside you can make it as easy or hard as you want.

Planned route or random fodder?

The next aspect to consider is whether you’re going to create clues that lead kids to each Easter egg or scatter treats here and there for them to find.

If you want to plan a route, you can get creative and come up with some age-appropriate tips for your kids. You can keep it simple for the little ones, with clues like “where we’re having dinner” (the dining room table, for example). For older children, you can make the clues more complex and even write your own puzzles. With this added element, the whole family can enjoy a sense of accomplishment as well as some seasonal snacks.

Give them a clue to start, then hide one next to each Easter egg. You might find it helpful to number each clue so everyone knows when they were all found. Need inspiration for a puzzle? country life has a host of indoor and outdoor clues to get you started.

[Link]

What you will need

To organize your Easter egg hunt, you will need to think about the number of people who will participate. The last thing you want is to run out of Easter Eggs!

Once you know how many people to support, it’s time to gather:

  • Baskets or bags in which children can collect their chocolates.

  • Decorations – you can add streamers, signage or other decorations to help set the scene and liven up your space.

  • Your Easter egg hunt clues and puzzles (if you use them).

And, of course, you’ll need the centerpiece of the event: delicious Easter treats! You can either select individually wrapped products Easter eggs and hide them as they are or opt for smaller bites hidden inside fillable plastic eggs. Fill-in-the-blank eggs are handy when planning an Easter egg hunt for multiple kids because you can assign them a color. Each child can then search for their own eggs, rather than one person catching them all first!

Delicious Easter treats

So what to include in your Easter egg hunt? Chocolate is traditional and – we could be biased – but in this case, tradition is a sure winner! That said, there are many original creations that bring a new dimension to Easter eggs. Take, for example, our You Crack Me Up Extra Thick Easter Egg. With a sumptuously thick shell, stacked with adorable City Bunnies and Sunny Side Up Truffles, it’s great for the whole family.

Alternatively, our Chocolate spread Easter sandwich is a fun take on the humble sarnie. Chewy yet rich 50% milk chocolate slices pair with decadent hazelnut for a more indulgent morsel. A truly original choice for an Easter egg hunt.

Our focus on ‘more cocoa, less sugar’ means that our children’s Easter eggs are full of cocoa and low in sweets. And our specially designed Tiddly Pots, Big City Easter Bunnies and Egg On My Face Chocolate Bars are lovely bites chewy enough for little taste buds. With milk, white and dark chocolate options available, you’re sure to find something for your lambs.

And if you opt for mini refreshments to put in refillable eggs, we have a multitude of gourmet bites. From 12 solids City Milk Chocolate Easter Bunnies and Elizapeck Speckled Eggs to be crazy Truffles Eggs and Soldiers, there are plenty of multipacks to split and hide. Mix and match to your heart’s content. For a full variety, why not take a look at the Easter basket abundantly? It has everything you need for a happy Easter egg hunt in one stylish collection. As a bonus, you can reuse the wicker basket for storage or summer afternoon picnics.

Creative Variations of the Easter Egg Hunt

You can keep your Easter egg hunt classic or add a little twist… Here are some ideas to get the creative juices flowing.

  • Easter egg hunt – instead of clues, create a walkabout quiz. Your questions can be Easter-themed or tailored to your family’s hobbies and interests.
  • Raffle – rather than hiding your chocolates around the house or garden, you can place raffle tickets in each fillable egg. Match each ticket number to a chocolate candy and have the kids search for tickets. Once attendees have collected all of their tickets, they can choose to keep or swap theirs with each other – then it’s time for the raffle! Which treats will match their tickets?
  • Packages – add a trick or treat element to your Easter egg hunt, with a few bundles! Some eggs may contain a sheet of paper with instructions such as “do five-star jumps” or “go to the next egg”. Keep a light heart and make sure there are plenty of tasty rewards to balance the tasks!
  • Glow in the Dark Easter Egg Hunt – Grab some glow-in-the-dark stickers and add them to your Easter eggs. Hide the eggs making sure the glow-in-the-dark sticker is visible. Turn off the lights and let the kids find their light-up treats. Just make sure to move all the obstacles to avoid injuries.

Delicious Easter eggs for the whole family

An Easter egg hunt is a great activity for the whole family. And why should children have fun? Alongside subtly sweet little bites and supersize Easter eggs for children, we have an amazing range of extravagant eggs for adults. After all, you deserve Easter joy too!

Make this year’s celebration even more special with the Extra Thick Champagne Easter Egg. Its decadently thick shell is made with 40% milk chocolate, half strawberry white and milk for the ultimate indulgence. And as if that weren’t enough, the interior is overflowing with champagne and pink champagne truffles. Presented in an elegant reusable box, it makes a fabulous gift – for yourself or a loved one.

TikTok video of worms in Cadbury’s Dairy Milk chocolate goes viral https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/tiktok-video-of-worms-in-cadburys-dairy-milk-chocolate-goes-viral/ Thu, 24 Feb 2022 23:15:19 +0000 https://nestleeuropeanchocolate.com/tiktok-video-of-worms-in-cadburys-dairy-milk-chocolate-goes-viral/ The Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar has a best before date of October 26, 2022.

The Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar has a best before date of October 26, 2022.

A TikTok video showing a Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar infested with worms has gone viral on TikTok and is now widely shared on other social media platforms such as WhatsApp and Telegram.

In the video, a man is heard speaking in Tamil, asking people not to give this chocolate bar to their children without first opening and inspecting it. He said he was shocked to find the worms in a Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar and made the video to raise awareness about these chocolates.

In the video, he points out that the best before date on the chocolate bar is October 26, 2022.

It is not known where the video was taken. But the controversy over worms in Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates has surfaced from time to time since 2003.

In 2003, a month before Deepavali, customers in Mumbai, India complained of finding worms in Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolates. The Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration reacted quickly and seized those made at Cadbury’s factory in Pune.

Cadbury quickly released a statement saying the infestation could not have happened at the manufacturing stage and poor storage at retailers was the most likely cause.

But the FDA would have none of that. He asked: “It was presumed that worms got into it from storage, but what about the packaging – the packaging was not suitable or airtight, in either case, it is a manufacturing defect with unsanitary conditions or improper packaging.”

Allegations and counter-allegations followed and the heat of the negative publicity melted Cadbury’s sales by 30%, at a time when it typically sees a festive peak of 15%. Following the controversy, Cadbury halted on-air advertising in India for the first time ever and remained for a month and a half after Deepavali. Consumers seemed to ignore their chocolate cravings.

– Advertising 2-

Once Cadbury realized it was a brand under fire and in October 2003 launched Project Vishwa’s, an educational initiative covering 190,000 retailers in key states. But what the company did in January 2004 is what really helped deworm the brand.

It invested more than $2.7 million in imported machinery and revamped the packaging process, which increased costs by 10-15%, but did not increase prices.

Cadbury’s India said at the time: “While we are talking about a few bars out of the 30 million we sell each month, we believe that to be a responsible business consumers need to have complete confidence in the products. So while this requires substantial investment and change, consumer confidence must not be allowed to erode.

He also tapped Amitabh Bachchan as a brand ambassador to do a heavy endorsement. But even that didn’t put the issue to bed for good.

In 2017, a contributor to a site called Linus Tech Tips again raised the issue of worms. One commenter replied: ‘A business that sells chocolate bars with worms shouldn’t continue to operate, and if a child who didn’t know ate that, Cadbury is ridiculous.’

– Advertising 3-

Then in 2021, a Sydney woman vowed never to eat chocolate again after biting into a Cadbury bar and finding dozens of wriggling maggots inside. The woman said she and a friend were watching a movie in her living room with the lights off when she noticed something moving under her nose.

They had bought a pack of 12 Cadbury’s Milky Top Freddo bars – half white chocolate and half milk chocolate in the shape of a frog – from a local store.

When the white chocolate part was, for a second, illuminated by the light from the television screen, she saw “this thing move”. She was horrified because she had already eaten half the chocolate and thought she had swallowed at least one maggot.

When they looked closer they found maggots inside the wrapper and the woman said the block was covered in a thin layer of ‘little babies and eggs and stuff’ . It happened at the end of April last year, she said, but frustrated by Cadbury’s response they shared the photos online in May.

She said when they complained to Cadbury they were offered a AU$25 voucher. She said, “We’re not asking for a free chocolate, we want an explanation. They (Cadbury) were so rude about the whole thing. I wanted an explanation for being able to eat chocolate again, like telling us it was one in a million.

Respond to reports, Cadbury has apologized to customers affected by the worm-infested chocolates. It said:

“We are sorry to learn of the (women’s) experience. Our dedicated teams work hard to ensure that our products are in the best possible condition when enjoyed by our consumers. From the photos, it appears that warehouse or flour moths have entered the product in storage.

“These insects are common around the world and can gain access to a range of different food products, including dried fruit, nuts, pasta and bread, without visibly damaging the packaging.

“We have implemented a series of measures in our distribution centers to minimize the risk of these common insects entering our packaging, and are working closely with stores and transport companies to help them maintain an environment that minimizes the risk. However, on this occasion, it appears that the product has been affected during transport or storage.

TCHO (“cho”), a pioneering artisanal chocolate maker based in Berkeley, Calif., is replacing its milk chocolate-based bars with plant-based dairy alternatives and introducing a complete packaging overhaul. Six new bars have joined the TCHO line, gradually replacing TCHO’s remaining milk chocolate bar offering, such as Caramel + Sea Salt and classic milk. The company’s colorful and fun new packaging will debut across the retail product line to highlight the shift to plant-based ingredients, with a commitment to make the entire product line animal-free by 2023.

“Reducing our dependence on dairy products is one of the fastest ways for TCHO to lessen our impact on the environment. While it’s not been an easy transition for us, we know it’s the right one,” said Josh Mohr, vice president of marketing at TCHO. “From the beginning, TCHO has been committed to working with our agricultural partners on the ground, improving farming techniques, improving soil conditions and doing what we can to help minimize deforestation – it’s all about ‘a plant-based model.’

Now, the entire line of TCHO products is Fair Trade Certified, Certified Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Kosher, and 100% Plant-Based. TCHO’s professional baking line, used in restaurant kitchens and bakeries nationwide, will be factory installed in early 2022. The company also recently achieved Certified B Corp status through its work to improve lives. of its workers, customers, suppliers and the local community.

TCHO’s six plant-based chocolate bars debuted on TCHO.com in early December and in new square-shaped packaging ($5.99/2.5 oz bar):

  • caramel time — Made with a meticulously crafted non-dairy base of cashew butter, coconut sugar, oat milk, and cocoa, this alternative milk chocolate bar is sprinkled with sea salt and vegan caramel pieces.
  • Oh nuts! — A dark chocolate bar filled with finely ground small batch California almonds in a crunchy almond butter with a hint of Pacific sea salt.
  • Choco Latte — A bold, rich coffee truffle filled with plant-based oat milk chocolate and organic coffee beans from Blue Bottle Coffee. Creamy, caramelized and energizing.
  • Holy Fudge — A single-origin organic Ghanaian dark chocolate bar reminiscent of the crispy edges of brownies with a dense, melty center.
  • born fruity — A single-origin organic Peruvian dark chocolate bar with deep fruity notes and a sweet, crunchy finish.
  • Dark Duo — An outer shell made with chocolatey cocoa from Holy Fudge, filled with the lush fruity cocoa from Born Fruity.

The plant-based bars join five existing retail bake bags that have been renamed and redesigned as part of the rebrand: Hawt Chocolate drink chocolate, Sweet and sassy sweet and sour pastry chocolate, dark and bitter unsweetened pastry chocolate, Super Powder cocoa powder and crush that roasted cocoa nibs.

A new tagline, “Chocolate. Fair & Square,” alludes to TCHO’s commitment to bringing dignity to the cocoa supply chain through its TCHO Source program, which invests in infrastructure, training and higher and fairer wages at the source TCHO’s seamless sourcing of high-quality, fair-trade and organic ingredients are brought together in a gourmet, award-winning square chocolate.

Everything about the new packaging has been designed to enhance the customer experience. The square box opens to reveal three individually wrapped servings instead of the previous single bar. These one-size-fits-all portions are meant to make the chocolate easier to share or store for later. Once the bars are removed from the packaging, a QR code is revealed, which redirects consumers to a page providing cocoa tracking information for each bar.

If flowers and jewelry aren’t your thing but you still love a traditional Valentine’s Day gift, how about chocolate? Forget the variety of pharmacies; Consumer Reports reveals tasty, affordable, and even heart-healthy chocolates that are sure to impress.

Consumer Reports employees worked hard to sample and rate the boxed chocolates! “It wasn’t a dream job. In fact, some chocolates that have a very good reputation are very bad chocolates,” said Kevin Doyle of Consumer Reports.

Godiva’s Signature Chocolate Truffle Gift Box has been described as “chewy” and “waxy”. And reviewers called Harry & David’s Signature Chocolate Truffles “plastic” and “chalky.” Doyle said: “A really good chocolate is going to be shiny, it’s not going to be dull, it’s going to be crisp, as opposed to kind of waxy or chewy, and in terms of flavor, sugar isn’t the first something you should taste when biting into a good chocolate.


Although it is the shortest month of the year, February offers great opportunities to save on purchases big and small.

Kevin’s favorite was from Dandelion Chocolate, an artisanal company based in San Francisco. The single-origin truffle collection features rich and complex confections that top the list.

Try the collection of exotic Vosges Haut-Chocolat truffles if you want to seduce a gourmet. Fresh flavors like wasabi, macadamia nut, olive oil and curry will delight adventurous palates.

And you want to give a gift that is sure to impress? As tasty as they are beautiful, the Formosa Bonbon Box would be a pleasure to receive. A Consumer Reports tester gasped as he opened the box. And your partner might appreciate the gluten-free, vegan, and alcohol-free options.






Valentine's Day Candy

Consumer Reports reveals tasty, affordable, and even heart-healthy chocolates that are sure to impress.




But maybe you want to gift chocolate that will not only win, but also benefit your valentine’s “heart”? Then give dark chocolate. The darker the better. “The cocoa beans that are used to make dark chocolate contain antioxidant flavanols that protect cells and help control inflammation.” Doyle said.

Think dark chocolate is too bitter? Consumer Reports’ professional taste panel found these high-cocoa chocolate bars that are so tasty, it’ll be easy to switch them up!

Express press service

There is a growing appetite for high-end chocolate at home. We no longer have to wait for our overseas cousins ​​to lug around Godivas and Guylains, with easy availability of gourmet bars in India. Consumption of desi chocolates is at its peak now, with a dizzying rush of hand-painted candies, cocoa nibs, toasted coconut truffles, mosaic bars, peanut butter cups, rose caramels, pecan appetizers, mocha almonds dipped in milk chocolate with caramelized macadamia, dark cookies, little golden cocoa kisses in a metallic dust for that extra shine… jostle to attract attention. Chocolate merchants love it.

Karan Ahuja, co-founder of Coco Cart & Coco Café, says the force behind chocolate stocks and super deals on saver packs at these glitzy DutyFree shops, introduced Coco Cart during the pandemic because negligible travel meant less footfall at airports. Storage was a challenge and the logical solution was to create chocolate stores across the country.

This is how Coco Cart, “the midlife child”, was born. “There are over 35 stores, seven cafes, over 400 employees and over 40 brands, all under one roof as of now,” says Ahuja, on a tiger mission to satisfy the country’s chocolate craving. . “For us, our growth rate is more than just a metric. With many new avenues launched in the near future, we expect to triple in size over the next two years. This shows us the hard work of our team to deliver melt-free to every Pincode in India.

We have been multiplied by 10 during this financial year: the multiple relates to our omnichannel markets. » With cleverly arranged sections for the chocolate rush from New Zealand, Switzerland… the groves are dotted with Whittaker’s, Godiva, Neuhaus, Loacker, Kinder, Lindt, Mars, Hershey’s, Milka, Chocodates, Wedel, Valrhona …even with FitSpo whey protein bars and flapjacks for goalies.

The chocolate market in India has grown throughout the pandemic, ushering in an upward trend. With palm oil infusions being diverted by consumers, the demand for pure chocolate has further increased. The definition of premium chocolate has changed. From an ambitious treat to an everyday indulgence, brown gold now also functions as a luxury mood enhancer. Handmade or branded. “Chocolate reigned as a delicious symbol of wealth and luxury back then, but now it’s become part of casual snacking due to our changing lifestyles,” says Karan.

“The growing population of a younger generation is a major driver, along with the digitized retail experience and the changing digital landscape in India: these factors have shaped the dynamics of consumption pattern and market demands. At the macro level, the Indian shopper today is very quality conscious with higher purchasing power on luxury goods.Consumers are willing to pay top dollar for fresh and fine produce available easily and in a critical timeframe. Our biggest spenders are millennials, who value working smart rather than working hard. Baby boomers have also taken over,” he adds, with Cococart now located in major airports, malls and delivering to all postcodes in India.

Single-origin blacks slip alongside salted caramel and handmade candies infused with the goodness of seasonal flowers, dancing in lipcuring colors from the hands of stellar chefs, each bite bringing a decidedly feel-good zone . This is a projected CAGR of 15% for 2021-26 for the chocmart in India. According to chef Vidushi Sharma, the 2019 founder of Truffle & Co., “The average Indian palate is much more avid of travel and familiar with distinctive flavors: luxury chocolate has a huge role to play in this because people started to move away. from mass produced products to beans to chocolate bars.

Premium chocolates are like good wine: single origin chocolates have notes just like wine, they can be full-bodied, fruity, sour or smoky. We make our own blend from Belgian couverture chocolate. I think the next five years are an exciting time for the chocolate industry, following the launch of Ruby, the fourth variety of chocolate. People will appreciate chocolates more for their decadence than for a random choice during a grocery run. For chocolate die-hards, iconic Swiss cocoa maker Barry Callebaut has launched the fourth type of chocolate (after dark, milk and white) called Ruby, a fruity twist of berries in a smooth complexion, rooted in the original color and taste of the ruby ​​berry. So much more to play with.

What about the local shockspace? According to Mumbai-based Rahul Bajaj, founder and designer of The Blue Gourmet, a recently launched B2B chocolate bar focused on strong R&D through its organic offerings, “dark chocolate and its variants are rapidly replacing traditional sweets on the table. . The premium aspect lies in the craftsmanship of the artisanal chocolate. We use the slogan SLO (sustainable, local, organic) by sourcing ingredients like rose, saffron and khandsari sugar from Kashmir, Garhwal, Kerala… our Indian cocoa, with its smoky, rusty and earthy flavor, is the fourth best in the world and is exported to Belgium.

We’ve taken it in liquid form to infuse it into ice creams, with berries and nuts from around the world, barks and form bars, candies, chewy sticks and coatings and all. Older folks and vegans love our khandsari variant, the rawest form of organic. I think working with different flavors, infusions and profiles brings a touch of innovation to chocolate and creates a consumer niche.

With variations ranging from vegan and sugar-free versions to bars pumped with infusions of camel and yak milk, branded and artisan chocolates are jumping into the fray. Taste to discover your real knockouts in 2022.

The Indian chocolate industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the past few years. On the consumer side, there has been a call for healthy snack options, giving new impetus to innovative brands that offer healthier chocolate options. From heart-healthy dark chocolate bars to chocolate barks infused with immunity-boosting ingredients like Ashwagandha and Tulsi, the chocolate industry is changing at a rapid pace.

Needless to say, the growth potential of the sector is enormous. Predicted to grow at an impressive CAGR of 12.1% between 2021 and 2026 according to IMARC Group, the chocolate industry is eagerly awaiting the 2022 Union budget, pending certain measures that can help the sector reach its potential. optimum.

Here is an overview of Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s main expectations in the 2022 budget:

Reduce GST

An 18% GST is currently levied on chocolates. This is a high percentage that often acts as a barrier to growth, especially for smaller industry players with boutique offerings. The segment expects a reduction in GST to 12%, which will give brands a significant boost, driving innovation. The benefits of lower GST can also be passed on to customers, fueling category growth.

Review import duty

New-age chocolate brands are striving to create lip-smacking confections and desserts that can rival global offerings in taste and quality. However, brands face a considerable obstacle: a high customs duty on raw materials. If the government reduces tariffs on raw materials for chocolate brands, the brands will be able to sell their products at a lower cost. This will ultimately increase sales and greatly benefit the category.

Compensation for losses up to 10 years

The COVID-battered economy has impacted most industries, including the chocolate sector. With the COVID threat still looming and the future of the outbreak uncertain, brands will benefit greatly if business losses are allowed to be carried forward for up to 10 years. Such an amendment to the Income Tax Law will help affected brands offset losses incurred in 2020 and 2021 from future profits. A full income tax exemption can also help brands regain their footing after two years of difficulty.

On the cusp of hyper-growth given rising demand, the chocolate industry will welcome the above benefits to navigate this turbulent time with greater ease of doing business and more favorable cost of doing business.
