  1. 2 Key Tailwinds = Chocolate Stocks Long-term Winners

    Mentions RMCF

    The Swiss usually rank #1 in chocolate consumption. The next group of high-rankers, eating an average of 17-20 lbs of chocolate per person per year, are the Austrians, Irish, Germans, Norwegians, and Danish. The other Western European and Nordic countries also rank highly.

    The U.S. usually ranks #11 -- hard to believe we're out-consumed by 50% to nearly 100%!

    It's no surprise the average American and Western European gobbles up considerably more chocolate than the average person who lives in an emerging market. However, just how much more might be a bit surprising.

    Indians eat an average of only 165 grams (less than 6 ounces) of chocolate a year and the Chinese eat an average of 99 grams (3.5 ounces). The average-sized Hershey bar is 1.55 ounces, so the average person in India eats an equivalent of less than four Hershey bars per year, while the average person in China consumes the equivalent of about two Hershey bars per year! (Brazilians, according to one source, eat an average of about 2.3 lbs per year, though another source had the figure higher. The 2.5-3.5 lbs range is a good estimate.)

    So, Western Europeans living in the top few chocolate consuming countries are eating, on average, over 50 times as much chocolate as Indians and over 90 times as much as the Chinese. We in the U.S. are out-"chocolating" the Indians and Chinese by roughly 30 times and 52 times, respectively.
