More About Chocolate in Canada

According to Statistia, the U.S. chocolate market is more than nine times bigger than Canada’s. But then again, with about 341 million people, America’s population is 8.8 times larger, so the chocolate-consuming discrepancy between the nations isn’t that great in terms of proportion.

The same website also tracks the number of “chocolate producing manufacturing establishments” in Canada by province. Quebec (32) and Ontario (24) are the runaway leaders in that category.

The revenue in what Statistia calls the “chocolate confectionery market” is projected to hit $3 billion USD (or about $4.1 billion Canadian at the current exchange rate) in 2024.

Mr. Big


Much like the dozens of operators offering Ontario casino apps that you won’t find in the United States, Canada also has candy bars that are either hard to find or all but unknown south of the border.

In America, brands such as Snickers, Reese’s, Milky Way, Hershey’s and Twix dominate similar lists of favorite candy bars by state. But in Canada, it’s all about brands such as Mirage (33 points), Caramilk (22) and Coffee Crisp (19). Those three are the leaders by far on our list of most popular candy bars in Ontario.

What would be sweet for Canadian sports fans is a strong showing by the nation's athletes at the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris. Check out our Canada Olympic medal tracker as the Paris Games get underway.
