The big reveal: The nation’s top ten

on Wednesday, 09 November 2016.

House of Sarunds, is particularly well known for its extensive range of loose chocolates. You know, the pralines, truffles, wrapped chocolates and dragees from some of Europe’s finest artisan chocolatiers which are sold through in store counters. Customers hand pick the chocs they would like to buy which are then gift wrapped to order – a fab gift idea. Follow the link to find out more about our range of loose chocolates. 


If you visit a specialist retailer, gift store or deli across the UK and find a wonderful loose chocolate counter stocked with the most amazing selection of confectionery, the chances are that it is a ‘Sarunds’.


So taking that into account and having been in the business for over 20 years, we feel we know a thing or two about the nation’s love affair with chocolate. We thought it would therefore be fun to delve into the archives to draw up a list of the nation’s top ten chocolate flavours. And here it is, a few familiar faces and some very pleasant surprises.


The nation's top ten chocolate flavours:

1. Champagne

2. Ginger

3. Baileys

4. Violet cream

5. Rose cream

6. Salted caramel

7. Rum

8. Cocoa dusted caramels

9. Cherry in brandy

10. Strawberry


“It is interesting to see how flavours become accepted over time and with the right exposure. Salted caramel is a fairly new flavour which seems here to stay after cementing its position in the top ten over the past couple of years,” explains Peter Martin, managing director, House of Sarunds.


“Chilli and coffee flavours are becoming more popular as are gin and rum plus cocktails such as mojito. More interesting flavour combos such as rhubarb and ginger and lime and chilli are also creating interest.”
