Abstract

Chocolate is usually sweet eatable, which is typically brown in color. It is a food preparation of theobroma cacao seeds, roasted and ground. Chocolate is often flavored, mostly with vanilla. It is available in different forms such as liquid, paste, or in blocks, or used as a flavoring ingredient in other foods.

Based on the sales category, the global market is further segmented as everyday chocolate, premium chocolate, and seasonal chocolate.

On the hand, the cheap products offered by local brands in these countries have resulted in to be chocolate popular among the masses.
