Best chocolate in Egypt
A clear majority of respondents prefer Milk chocolate (52%) ahead of Dark (32%) and White chocolate (13%) This is the case across all age groups and income levels. However consumers aged 46-55 tend to be overrepresented among those favoring Milk chocolate. In contrast, Dark chocolate performs better among the 36-45 and above 55 age groups while White chocolate is stronger among the under 35. Interestingly, women are more represented among Milk and Dark chocolate lovers than men. On the other hand, men tend to have a higher preference for White chocolate compared to women.
