Pwinkies are the latest addition to Bonds Confectionery’s sharing bag range. The retro style strawberry and cream flavour candies come comprise cone, bottle, mice and pig faces and are set to appeal to both adults and children alike. The 140g bags retail at £1 and all cases available at launch will inclue a headed clip strip to help retailers save on space.

“This year we conducted a consumer survey which confirmed that in Britain we love our sweets and it was no surprise that it showed chocolate is still the most popular treat,” says managing director Philip Courtenay- Luck. “Flavoured chocolate is a trend which we predict will continue to go from strength to strength and Pwinkies certainly fit into this innovative category.”
