Mars Chocolate North America has announced the launch of several new chocolate products that premiered at the National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show held in Atlanta Oct. 18-21. The products will be available in the coming months.
Mars will convert lay-down bags to stand-up pouches for M&M’S, Snickers and Twix candies.
Snickers & Hazelnut Bar
With the growing popularity of hazelnuts, Mars will launch the Snickers & Hazelnut Bar in December. It has all the traditional aspects of a Snickers bar — peanuts, caramel and nougat covered in milk chocolate — but with the addition of hazelnuts.
S.R.P.: (1.76-oz. package) $0.99 to $1.09
M&M’S Caramel Chocolate Candies
These M&M’S have milk chocolate and a colorful candy coating like their classic counterparts, but they also have a creamy caramel center. Launching in April 2017, the Caramel Chocolate Candies will remain a permanent product in the M&M’S collection.
S.R.P.: (1.41-oz. package) $1.69 to $1.99
