Chocolate is (nearly) always welcomed as a great idea, but would chocolate be also a great idea for your business? In 2021, after a challenging year with new ways of living, working and consuming, the sentiment among consumers is that they “deserve a treat”.

Hollow figures and Easter eggs are a great option to test the waters and to test your local market demand as well.
