The chocolate version of millennials’ favorite fruit has gone full-on festive and is sporting a golden glow this Christmas. The ‘flesh’ has been created using a caramel white chocolate, giving a unique, creamy flavor to complement the rich, dark chocolate shell. For the finishing touch, the avocado has been sprinkled with a gorgeous golden shimmer.
“Some people enjoy avocado for breakfast on Christmas morning, but this one is an extra special sweet treat for the big day!” says Product Developer Kate Kind. “This year we are predicting grown-up confectionery will be a big trend for the festive season so it seemed the perfect time to introduce a new addition to our Christmas selection.
Although the sweet treat is shaped like an avocado, it’s 100% chocolate with no avocado flavoring. The shell and stone are made using 70% cocoa from carefully selected sources, along with a smooth, caramel flavor white chocolate middle.
The Waitrose & Partners Chocolate Avocado became the fastest-selling own-brand Easter egg ever in 2018 and this Easter, the supermarket saw sales of the playful confection soar, while baby versions of the chocolate avo became the best selling Easter treat.
Waitrose & Partner Golden Chocolate Avocado will be available in Waitrose shops and on Waitrose.com this Christmas priced at £9 for 250g. to
