The seasonal shift to autumn brings a change in people's eating habits. Out go the salads and ice creams and comfort foods make a comeback. Many households stock up on sweet treats ahead of Halloween and Christmas is a popular time for chocaholics to indulge themselves.

Chocolates are more than just a source of comfort and conviviality. Chocolate, and indeed the entire confectionery market, represents a delectable array of options for investors looking for seasonal opportunities. The global chocolate confectionery market appears to be in a sweet spot, projected to expand from $136 billion in 2020 to $161 billion in 2026, growing 3% annually.
