Chocolate Wrapper

From early times of manufacturing chocolate bars paper became most popular material for chocolate wrappers. under outer paper wrapper is always inner wrapper (foil) usually made of aluminium or plastic.

There are 3 main types of paper chocolate wrapper. First type is strip of paper wrapped over the chocolate bar so it is usually easy to take off the wrapper from chocolate.This wrapping method was more frequent in the past. It is used mostly in USA, England, the Netherlands, Estonia or in many asian countries now. Second type covers complete chocolate bar like a envelope. This envelope style of paper wrapper is widely spread in most countries. It is sometimes necessary to open these wrappers carefully and try not to tear them. For some chocolates is often used as a wrapping material cardboard paper. Typical is for some filled chocolates especially those with liquid filling like spirits, for chocolates with whole hazelnuts, for higher weights chocolates, portioned chocolates like Schogetten, for luxury chocolates or for chocolate bars with unusual shape. Also worldwide known chocolate bar Toblerone is covered with cardboard wrapper. Except most frequented paper other wrapping materials like cellophane, metalized foils or plastic foils became more and more popular from economic reasons. Typical use is for square chocolates, some cheaper chocolates or for chocolate candy bars like Mars. German manufacturer of square chocolates Ritter used cellophane as a wrapping material till 1978, then paper wrapper combined with aluminum and since 1991 plastic foil wrapper which is easy to open without damage. Among European makers of chocolate bars is more and more common to wrap the chocolates in plastic foils. Almost all small bars and candy bars are now packed in plastic foil and also some cheaper chocolates like 100g bars of Trumpf or Waldbaur in Germany or Lola chocolates by Swiss Halba. Specific type of wrappers use some scandinavian companies - they combine paper with inner metalized foil in one wrapper. This method is often used for packing chocolate pieces in rolls. Some companies like Italian Delicia also use combination of plastic wrapper with inner metalized foil.
