Angels and chocolate sprouts push up Christmas sales
Booming sales of Angels, Snowmen and Christmas Chocolates (even chocolate sprouts!) during half term week pushed the GTN Christmas Products Top 50 up 54% on the previous week but couldn’t beat the half term sales from last year, ending down 12%.
That still puts Christmas at 8% up year to date.
Suki Angel decorations grew sales by 50% to surge further ahead as the No 1 bestselling Christmas product of the year so far.
Albert Premier Chocolate Coins, 100g, were the highest new entry, straight in at No 3.
Kinnerton Chocolate Sprouts in a net, 75g, were not far behind, entering our chart at No 6.
