The holiday season is about giving – from giving thanks in November to giving gifts in December. However, in a study conducted by researchers at Yale, it was found that when consumers perform a selfless act they, in turn, are flooded with endorphins that promote self-satisfaction. These same endorphins then increase the likelihood of consumers making self-indulgent choices. So, while the holiday season is about giving to others, it’s also about giving in to yourself.
One of 2015’s biggest flavor stories has been the rise of hot chocolate. With cookies, candies and even popcorn jumping onto the hot chocolate bandwagon, brands are showing that they aren’t afraid to experiment with interesting takes on old favorites. As we transition into the holiday season and the temperature continues to drop, consumers are even more likely to indulge – from sweets to drinks.
A study conducted by The NPD Group found that sweet snack consumption peaks in the winter months, spiking in November and maintaining throughout December. With that in mind, convenience stores, restaurants, grocers and hotels are stocking up or capitalizing on the indulgences that consumers love in the winter months.
