It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go! Take a look in the five-and-ten glistening once again, with candy canes and silver lanes aglow.
Not my words of course, but those of criminally-overlooked songwriter Meredith Willson in the seasonal standard, It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas, made famous by Perry Como, Bing Crosby and of late, Michael Buble.
Why? To any of this? Good questions. Well lemme tell you this readers: M&M’s is releasing a new range of chocolate bars inspired by some of their most popular flavours.
That’s right baby, plenty of chocolate to see you through the festive season.
Among the flavours will be peanut, almond, crispy, mint and of course, the classic milk chocolate.
Allison Miazga-Bedrick, M&M’s senior brand director said:
We’re excited to debut M&M’s Chocolate Bars and know that our M&M’s fans and chocolate bar lovers alike will appreciate the delicious taste that comes from our rich and creamy chocolate.
We’re equally passionate for the launch of M&M’S Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies next year. We’re thrilled to deliver this new flavour with colour and fun, in a way that only M&M’S can.
Chocolate not your thing? Fancy some sherbet Dip Dabs, Refreshers, Fruit Salad, Black Jacks, and mini bags of Milk Bottles, Shrimps and Bananas? Get your laughing gear around THIS instead!
A tub of Barratt’s classics will go on sale in Sainsbury’s and Wilko’s, among others which are yet to be announced. Barratt claims all the new tubs will be ‘available soon though an exact date isn’t currently known. Can you say ‘excited’?
Russell Tanner, marketing and category director at Tangerine Confectionery, said:
Many consumers will be eager to indulge in the sweets they loved when they were younger, and introduce their favourites to their own children.
We expect the Barratt tubs to fly off shelves this year, offering a great selection of retro classics, suitable for confectionery lovers of all ages.
You can say that again, Russ. I’m absolutely buzzing about this.
Two of the biggest Barratt brands – Wham and Fruit Salad – are being launched in a new tube format and will set shoppers back by a charming little quid. Both tubes will be on shelves at Home Bargains and Wilko’s.
And the Liquorice Novelties box (RRP £3.49, 270g) is back by popular demand. Each piece of liquorice is handcrafted at Tangerine’s Pontefract factory, and it was the sweet company’s second bestselling sharing product last year.
I suggest if you want either, get your hands of them quick!
