The company said new products hitting the shelves next month will include variations from popular brands including KitKat, Aero and Rowntree’s.

Here’s a sneak peek at what is launching soon:

KitKat Bites

It’s KitKat, but not as you know it! With a deliciously smooth and chocolatey centre, crunchy wafer pieces and a milk chocolate shell, KitKat Bites are a more indulgent way to enjoy a break. Milk chocolate KitKat Bites will be available in 90g sharing bags (RRP £1.59) from Tesco and Booker stores from the beginning of February, and in supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide from April.

Meg Miller, Brand Manager for KitKat said: “This is a grown-up twist on our much-loved brand, and we are so excited to bring KitKat Bites to the market.  We can’t wait for people to try them!​”

Also new from KitKat this spring is the KitKat Chunky Lotus Biscoff Giant Egg (274.5g, RRP £7.49), and a KitKat 4 Finger Orange and KitKat 2 Finger White offering at 106 calories per bar. Available from the beginning of February in multipacks of nine 2- finger bars (20.7g x 9) from a wide range of supermarkets and convenience stores. (RRP: £1.99).

Nestle said the entire KitKat range is made using 100% certified sustainable cocoa, sourced through the Nestlé Cocoa Plan in conjunction with Rainforest Alliance and contains no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

Aero Melts

A brand new innovation from Nestlé, Aero Melts are buttons of light and bubbly chocolate that melt effortlessly in the mouth for a ‘moment of chocolatey indulgence’ and will be available in supermarkets and convenience stores nationwide from the beginning of February.

Aero Senior Brand Manager Marion Miles said: “The science and technology behind Aero made it unique from the start – but we continually look for new ways to innovate and delight fans. We are thrilled to introduce a completely different way to experience our famous bubbles this year, with new Aero Melts. Perfect for sharing, Aero Melts flood the mouth with bubbly chocolate for a truly delicious treat.​”

Aero Melts are being made at Nestlé’s factory in York, which also produces Aero Bubbles and Aero Milk, Peppermint and Caramel sharing bars, alongside KitKat, Milkybar, Yorkie and Polo.

Rowntree’s

Brand new from the famous Rowntree’s brand this spring are Randoms Squidgy Swirls, a popular fruit sugar sharing bag brand. Sascha Macchi, Senior Brand Manager for Rowntree’s, said: ‘If we had to sum up our Randoms Squidgy Swirls in one word, it would be scrumptious! Our newest chews are deliciously fruity and creamy-tasting, with an immensely satisfying squidge. They make a fun and playful treat for fruity chew lovers of all ages!”

Also new to the Rowntree’s range are Jelly Tots Tropical Tots. A vegan friendly treat, Tropical Tots are made with real fruit juice and come in five tangy flavours: passion fruit, peach, pineapple, grapefruit and mango (140g sharing bag, RRP £1.59). Jelly Tots Tropical Tots are available exclusively in Tesco stores from the middle of this month.
