Germany's candy manufacturers produced more chocolate Santa Clauses this year.

The Federal Association of the German Confectionery Industry (BDSI) announced in Bonn that around 169 million pieces were 5.6 percent more than the previous year, referring to a survey among its member companies.

Domestic supermarkets, discounters, department stores and specialist retailers had ordered more, and demand from abroad also increased.

A good third of the chocolate figures are sold to other countries, the remaining two thirds remain in Germany.

"In difficult and uncertain political times, it is evident that confectionery is one of the little pleasures of everyday life," said BDSI Managing Director Carsten Bernoth.
