Mini bars and bites

Petite portions remain popular, particularly in sweet snacking. Brands debuting miniature versions of its chocolate bars include Milkboy Swiss Chocolate and Raaka Chocolate. These “little luxuries” offer an opportunity to capture the impulse indulgence buyer, said Milkboy Swiss Chocolate, whose small bar varieties include crunchy caramel with sea salt, alpine milk swiss chocolate and extra dark 85% cocoa.


Sugar Bowl Bakery is introducing a line of Breakfast Bites in double chocolate, blueberry lemon and cranberry orange flavors. Made with whole grains and dried fruit, these morning snacks are denser than a muffin and airier than a brownie, according to the company.

Beyond bars and bites, thins are in, too. Sejoyia Foods’ new Coco-Thins are light and crisp plant-based cookies made from five to seven ingredients such as cashews, coconuts and cassava. Flavors include chocolate, lemon zest, vanilla and salted caramel.
