Chocolate remains #1

US chocolate sales have increased 6.3% in the four month period ending June 27, compared to the same period the year before, as brands dive further into this versatile snack segment.

The trendsetters: Guittard, Good Good Krunchy Keto Bar, McVitie’s and Bahlsen

Honourably sourced

Guittard is the preferred chocolate of master chocolatiers, including Paul A Young, Benjamin Ebuehi, Lily Vanili and Great British Bake Off winner Edd Kimber.

It’s range of milk and dark chocolate chips are now available in Waitrose stores across the UK – undoubtedly a tasty inclusion in muffins, cookies, cakes and more, but with the peace-of-mind knowledge that the chocolate has been honourably sourced, is non-GMO Project Verified and Fair Trade Certified.

The chocolatier also offers a baking kit – comprised of some of its favourite products – for stay-at-home kitchen adventures. Each Guittard tote bag contains a bag of Super Cookie Chips, a bag of Extra Dark Baking Chips, 100% Cacao Unsweetened Chocolate, a can of Grand Cacao and – for a limited time only – a reprint edition of its first ever cookbook.


Good Good has launched a Krunchy Keto Bar that will satisfy your sweet tooth for breakfast, while scrambling to get your day on the go … always busy, even if you are still in lockdown.

The nutrient-packed bar is only 130 calories with only 2g net carbs, sweetened with stevia and erythritol. It also packs in 6g of fibre to keep you feeling full for longer. By comparison, most instant oats and quinoa-based cereals contain 5g of fibre, said the brand.
