Jimmy Attias at Bean and Pod, discusses sweet treats to celebrate the annual spring festival and Bank Holiday weekend.
“Shoppers are excited by chocolate that offers something different. At Bean and Pod we combine unique ingredients and fabulous flavours to produce our handcrafted chocolate range.
Easter isn’t just about eggshaped chocolates. Innovation in the confectionery sector has seen a rise in consumers demanding egg alternatives – whether that is free from products, chocolate bars or boxes of chocolates.
We offer a treat for everyone for any occasion; all Bean and Pod chocolates are handmade in the UK, Vegetarian Society approved, plus there are Vegan Society approved and dairyfree options in the range too.
Exciting flavours in the collection include; Dark Chocolate Salted Pumpkin Seeds, Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Salt & Pepper Almonds, Dark Chocolate Cocoa Dusted Cashew Nuts with a hint of Chilli and Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Bites.
A big trend for 2018 is the ‘balance equation’. This involves consumers being willing to write their own definitions of healthy, based on occasion and need. If consumers are going to indulge in chocolate, then high quality, premium products are best for retailers to stock.”
