Did you know that we Brits annually pour over £150 million into a sweet and delicious addiction: confectionary products?
We’re also quite likely to forget the word’s ‘sharing pack’ on packets of sweets with one in four of us wolfing down the ‘meant to share’ treat by ourselves! It gets worse the younger we are with 27% of all young people not prepared to share.
Us Brits are suckers when it comes to seasonal treats with Easter being our biggest period of temptation. Advertising makes us all likely to fork out for a large chocolate Easter egg. Last year we spent £73.8 million on seasonal offerings. But it’s not just Easter with Christmas and even Halloween showing a spike in demand for surgery goodness.
So our love affair with chocolate and other confectionary products shows no signs of diminishing in the face of healthy eating campaigns. We’re so in love of confectionary that the leading brands have 85.9 million fans on Facebook and nearly the same on Twitter.
