Private-label chocolate supplier Hames Chocolates has expanded its hot chocolate range for this winter’s peak sales season to cater to what it calls ‘the growing demand for self-treating and affordable luxury.’

The Lincolnshire private label expert, which has seen approximately + 260% annual increase in value sales of its real hot chocolate flakes, has unveiled a selection of new and indulgent Hames Chocolates Hot Chocolate Stirrers, Hot Chocolate Bombes and Hot Chocolate Pouches.

The new additions have joined Hames’ existing line-up of premium products delivering real hot chocolate, which you add to hot milk. Ideal for multiple and high street retailers, tourism, and leisure operators, as well as specialist chocolate shops and gifting – Hames Chocolates is also offering retailers customer-branded (private label) hot chocolate pouches for orders over 1,000 units.

Now the weather has turned colder, we are urging retailers to stock up on our hot chocolate range to make sure they can meet consumer demand​,” said Carol Oldbury, Director of Hames Chocolates.

Despite the current pressures on spending, shoppers are happy to pay the extra for premium quality hot chocolate products, which is why we have seen such a fantastic increase in sales of our real hot chocolate flakes. Traditional hot chocolate, made with milk chocolate, is doing extremely well, while premium flavours, such as milk orange and Irish cream have helped to increase sales in the run up to the festive period. And with Christmas coming up, our Hot Chocolate products also make the perfect gift​.”
