British sweet manufacturer Swizzels has created a limited-edition Minions-themed range of confectionery to coincide with the UK release of Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru, which launches in UK cinemas on 1 July 2022.

The range includes:
Minions Banana and Blueberry Squashies

Wholesalers can purchase in 120g packs in cases of twelve PMP. RSP £1 per hanging bag.
Minions Tropical Chew Bars
A brand-new product featuring two tropical flavours: Peach & Passionfruit and Mango & Pineapple. Vegan-friendly, the chew bars are presented in vibrant packaging that features a different Minion on each product.
Wholesalers can purchase in 120g packs in cases of 12. RSP £1 per hanging bag.
Minions Tropical Fizz Individual Chew Bar
Another new product, Minions Tropical Fizz individual chew bars will be released in June with an RSP of 15p. The product features a surprise sherbet centre encased in a tropical flavoured chew.
