There are also on-trend viennoiseries, such as New York Style Cacao Croissant as well as traditional French viennoiserie options with a new Palmier in 80g & 20g formats, Tartiflette Quiche and Macarons.

The business’s afternoon tea range has been expanded with a Strawberry & Vanilla Battenberg, Mini Lemon Meringue & Chocolate Tart, Lemon Posset & Coffee Eclair, and Traditional Fully Baked Scones. It is also launching single cases of pistachio, raspberry, and lemon flavours for its macaron offer.

The brand advises convenience retailers to stock a core range of treats from the new range, such as the Butter Pastries, Doughnuts, Pain Suisse au Chocolat, Taquitos and New York Style Cacao Croissant.

The new range coincides with Delice de France marking its 40-year anniversary. To celebrate, the business is launching a new ‘Delice Stamp of Approval’, which will be placed on 40 heritage products, such as Delice’s classic Croissant, Chocolate Torsade, Parisien Baguette and Pain de Campagne, guaranteeing their quality and bestseller appeal.
