Luxury Chocolate

A new wave of luxury chocolate has emerged

Implications - New markets mean new opportunities. The growing affluent class has created an expanding market for “luxury” food items. High-end chocolatiers are bypassing the kiddie market and targeting affluent adults with bite-sized delicacies like chocolate pearls, gold-laced chocolates, Easter eggs draped in diamonds and precious-jewel coated chocolates. It’s important to note that the association of sweet treats and children is no longer applicable -- these are the kinds of treats least likely to appear on your child's hands and face.
