The latest format innovation from the world’s second largest sugar confectionery manufacturer, Perfetti Van Melle, is an addition to the range of their top ten candy brand, Fruit-tella. The enduringly popular Strawberry chew can now be enjoyed in sharing bag format – ideal for snacking alongside friends and family. The bags are currently available to purchase for £1.50 (RRP) in the convenience channel and are soon to be rolled out across grocery, starting in February with Morrisons.
Fruit-tella’s number one product, Strawberry Stick, found great success with its delicious strawberry taste – the top flavour amongst Perfetti fans. The new Simply Strawberry Sharing Bags offer Fruit-tella’s iconic strawberry-flavoured soft chew in an easy to share, individually wrapped toffee-shaped sweet, offering both hygiene and portion control. These tempting treats are sure to make a perfect addition to a sharing bowl for the next big night in occasion, or a thoughtful seasonal gift for upcoming spring holidays such as Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day and Easter.
Fruit-tella’s entirely vegan formula, made with real fruit juice and only natural flavours and colourings, allows children and parents alike to indulge in Fruit-tella Simply Strawberry’s all-natural fruity joy.
Not only vegan, but also dairy, nut and gluten-free, Fruit-tella Simply Strawberry makes for a more inclusive snacking experience for fans of the brand’s beloved chews. Fruit-tella allows candy-lovers everywhere to feel full of fruity joy regardless of allergies, intolerances, or lifestyle choice.
