Mars Chocolate introduces new items at NACS show
Mars Chocolate North America, McLean, Va.
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
