Sample chocolate Pro Trends - Each chocolate PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online chocolate articles, videos and images. Examples:

Sophisticated Mundane Consumers who can't afford luxury opt for luxe-branded regular products Implications - Previously, the divide between the opulent and the frugal was much larger than now, with luxury companies offering bits of prestige in the form of more low-brow, day-to-day products. Consumers who can't buy off-runway clothing, yet still want to brag about their designer products flock to these mundane, yet prestigious products as a compromise.

Double Decadence 2.0 Indulgent edibles and couture combine in a natural marriage Implications - Previous versions of double decadence saw a convergence between fashion and food photography; it has since evolved to tangible products that marry these two worlds. For the post-recession consumer, indulgence is the true mark of prestige. Thus, cuisine and couture -- industries both based in pleasure -- have naturally converged to offer truly luxurious products.

Turning favorites like marshmallows and cupcakes into petite works of art, these revamped desserts speak to a desire to maintain childhood indulgences while engaging in more creative and mature forms of expression.

Botanical Branding Elements of nature are added to packaging designs to create a more organic feel Implications - Straying away from the cold and minimalist features of mass-produced products, brands are turning to more organic and nature-inspired packaging designs. Utilizing patterns and colors that reference the blossoming of flowers, these branding techniques offer a connection to the raw and untouched elements of the outdoors.

Intentionally Unappetizing A fixation on the eating experience sparks a focus on shocking cuisine Implications - Consumers aren't simply looking for something delicious to eat, but a story to tell afterward. As foodie culture becomes ubiquitous, the unappetizing is becoming a focus for consumers craving an experience that's both satisfying for their palate and worthy of being shared on social media.
