Pringles launch new multigrain non-HFSS range

The new flavour will be available nationwide at stockists, including Sainsbury’s from September and other retailers, such as Tesco, from October 2022.
Nestlé launches new Munchies sharing bar
Nestlé’s Munchies has launched the brand’s first-ever sharing bar. A mouth-watering combination of gooey caramel and crispy biscuit encased in a milk chocolate shell, Munchies Caramel and Biscuit Sharing Bar makes a great treat to break apart and savour with family and friends.
The 87g bar is available now from a variety of supermarkets, convenience, and value stores across the UK.
Gatsby’s Peanut Butter Madness bar turns the butter cup upside down
The low-sugar brand Gatsby Chocolate has taken the best part of a peanut butter cup (the creamy peanut butter on the inside) and created an indulgent, creamy peanut butter bar filled with crunchy, salty chunks of peanuts. It’s the inside of a peanut butter cup…but in bar form.
Moreover, the bar claims to offer only 70 calories per serving – two to three times less calories than other premium chocolate bars
Available in stores across the US, Gatsby’s Peanut Butter Madness bar will join the brand’s current collection of confectionery.
General Mills launches Trix Popcorn
