Elite soars to the top
The biggest biscuit NPD* of the year was Jacob's Elite Chocolate Mikado, which helped drive Jacob's value share in fully coated to 38%. The newest edition to the Jacob's Elite family is a twist on the successful Mikado biscuit - it is a soft crumbly biscuit topped with pink mallow and raspberry flavoured jam, all covered in milk chocolate.
