“Better-for-you” Ingredients Help Candy Category Gain Ground
There is good news ahead for those who scream “I want candy!” but who don’t want the guilt.
Confections manufacturers not only are implementing more better-for-you ingredients in their chocolates, truffles and bars, but they also are creating better tasting products, too.
More than half of consumers eat candy in moderation when considering healthy eating strategies, according to CandyUSA.com. More than half of the 1,500 people polled by NCA Sweet Insights agree that confections can be a part of a healthy diet when consumed in moderation. Twenty-two percent made the switch altogether to more nutritious foods that were chocolate flavored.
For those who don’t want to make the switch and who still want a better-for-you chocolate or candy offering, confections made with honey could be the answer.
