Dollar sales growth of chocolate nibbles

In 2019, milk chocolate was unrivaled in terms of U.S. confectionery dollar sales growth: compared to the previous year, milk chocolate sales in the United States grew by over 300 million U.S. dollars. Ranking second, sales of chewy candy grew by roughly 65 million U.S. dollars. Several product categories, such as non-chocolate bars and hard candy, generated fewer sales in 2019 than in 2018.
