With the help of Euromonitor International’s 2014 per capita consumption data, ConfectionaryNews has compiled a list of the top 20 chocolate consuming nations.

The chocolate consuming crown was retained by the home of Lindt and Nestle, Switzerland, as they consumed a whopping 9kg a year per person. This figure is the equivalent of one eating 209, 43g bars.

Since 2012, the consumption of chocolate in some countries has declined. Falls in consumption were noted in several countries such as the US, Scandinavia and the Netherlands.

In former Eastern bloc countries such as Estonia and Lithuania, the consumption of chocolate has been steadily rising. As well as former Eastern bloc countries, Russia’s consumption has also been growing.

In areas such as the developing BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India and China) and MINT (Mexico, Indonisia, Nigeria and Turkey), chocolate consumption was also mapped. Since 2012, chocolate consumption has been growing or plateauing in these developing areas.
