Amy Lucas, brand manager for Halls, said: “We’re proud to say that Halls is the number one relief candy brand in the UK [Nielsen Value Sales, Total Mints, w/e 06.10.18], with the number one sku within its range. We can’t wait to launch our latest ad campaign, especially at this time of the year when we know relief candy becomes more relevant for our consumers. We’re confident that our OOH campaign will help to drive sales, so we recommend that retailers stock up to take advantage of the heightened awareness during the season”
