Chocolate has become synonymous with Valentine’s Day, but all year round, you’ll find plenty of people looking for the best chocolate shops in Pakistan, whether to buy gifts and treats or pick up some free samples! With so many options available, from online shops and independent boutiques to national chains and food stores, knowing where to start can be difficult. This article will help you understand how many people love chocolates and what global trends are.
What are the types of chocolates available in Pakistan?
Chocolate has been around for a long time, initially as a drink made from cacao beans. The first European settlers to America brought them the knowledge of making what we now call chocolate. In the early 1900s, Hershey’s started making and selling milk chocolate bars. Today, there are a wide variety of chocolates available to us. There are four main types of Chocolate in Pakistan: white, milk, dark and semisweet.
White is made with cocoa butter but no cocoa solids. It doesn’t have much flavor because all of the flavors come from added flavors or vanilla extract. Milk chocolate contains dairy products such as milk or cream and less cocoa powder than other varieties. It is sweeter than different varieties because it has cocoa and dairy ingredients. Dark chocolate can come in either form: unsweetened, bittersweet, or semisweet, depending on how much sugar was used during processing. Semi-sweet is often considered the most versatile since it tastes good both eaten alone and added to other desserts.
Who are the customers of chocolates in Pakistan, and what do they look for?
People living in Pakistan, or those traveling to the country, usually enjoy chocolates. The government is not known for producing cocoa beans; therefore, most available chocolates come from other countries. Locals do not have strong opinions about what type of chocolate they prefer as long as it is edible. Some famous brands imported into the country include Hershey’s, Cadbury, Lindt, and Ferrero Rocher.
Chocolate eating habits around the world
A survey conducted by an international chocolate company found that, on average, 89% of the world’s population enjoys eating chocolate. However, there are some parts of the world where this number is much lower than others. For instance, only 45% of Pakistan’s population says they enjoy eating chocolate, according to a study by The International Cocoa Organization.
The population of Pakistan is over 200 million. In a country of this size, one would expect that the percentage of citizens who like chocolate is relatively high. However, only about 45% of Pakistani citizens say they like or love chocolate. This number could change with time as more and more people become exposed to the sweeter side of life. Still, it’s a considerable number of people love with chocolates in Pakistan.
What about Chocolate Business?
So you want to start a business selling chocolate. That’s great! But what type should you sell? There are two main types of chocolate: milk and dark. Milk is typically sweeter and has less cocoa content than dark. It also tends to be creamier, which can be good if that’s the type of texture you’re going for. Dark is usually richer, more bitter, and has more cocoa content than milk.
