Lees of Scotland, one of the UKs leading independent confectionery manufacturers, is unveiling a brand new creation which is aimed at the dessert and home baking market.

Lees Macaringues, a 24 pack of almond flavour meringue shells, is the first Lees product to be both gluten free and nut free enhancing the appeal to a wide range of consumers.

The vibrant, colourful design of the packaging will ensure the product has prominent impact on the shelf and with the nation still riding high on the baking wave, the nature of the product as meringue shells which are ready to fill will be of particular interest to those gripped by baking fever.

This new product has been developed by a team of experts at Lees who have created a unique recipe. The individual Macaringues come in three exciting colours, purple, pink and green.

Commenting on the new product, Sheevaun Thomas NPD Manager at Lees of Scotland said: “The launch of our Lees Macaringues marks a very exciting time at Lees as it is quite different to anything we have previously developed and we are extremely excited for the public to try them.

“We have worked hard to get the recipe just right and are pleased we have been able to make the product suitable for those with nut and gluten allergies to still enjoy.

“The products are extremely versatile and can be enjoyed at celebrations from an afternoon tea to a dinner party and even at a wedding. They can be included as part of a dessert or served as a canape. There really is no end to the occasions where they can be enjoyed”

Lees Macaringues are available exclusively at Tesco and can be found in the dessert aisle.
