Chocolates, Puff Snacks, and Ice Creams are popular for both males and females.
Especially Chocolates seem to be the most popular sweets for them.
So Chocolates may be your first choice as gifts for Vietnamese people.

As females tends to choose multiple kinds of sweets comparing to males’ choice, females seem to eat more various kinds of sweets than males do

In Japan, some surveys indicate that people chose Chocolates as the most favorite sweets or the second as well as people in Vietnam.
Chocolates looks like to be tempting sweets for many people beyond country and culture.

The most popular place to buy sweets is supermarket for both males and females.
It looks like people normally buy sweets in real stores in town, like shopping malls and/or convenience stores.

Although Street Stalls are not highly used (26%) to purchase sweets compare to other stores, Vietnamese people seem go there much more often than Japanese do.

Vietnamese love sweets, regardless of males or females!!

Popular category of sweets: Chocolates, Puff Snacks, and Ice Creams

I’ve got an impression that Vietnamese men like sweets as much as women.
Family and friends in Vietnam should enjoy their gathering with their favorite sweets.

I heard that sweets made in Japan are popular in Vietnam, besides local sweets.
Actually, our staff in Hanoi are always happy when we bring them sweets from Japan as souvenir.
Also, when Vietnamese staff come to Japan, they buy a lot of Japanese sweets for their family and friends.

We should check what kind of Japanese sweets are popular in Vietnam in the future.
