product news: Big Bear plans heritage selection box

John Wood ·

Big Bear Confectionery, owner of the Fox’s Glacier brand, will launch a retro heritage selection box this month to help retailers cash in on the trend for retro sweets in the run up to Christmas.

With kidulting (treats and sweets geared towards adult consumers who are looking for ways to relive their childhood) a growing trend in the UK, the Heritage Fox’s Glacier Selection Box (RRP £3.49) includes retro packaging on its classic Glacier Mints and Glacier Fruits alongside the latest permanent addition to the Fox’s family – Glacier Spearmints.

Designed in celebration of the brand’s 100th anniversary, the Heritage Fox’s Glacier Selection Box features photography from Fox’s archive.

Andrew Ovens, marketing manager, commented: “In preparation for our 100th anniversary celebrations, we’ve spent a lot of time going through our archives. Talking to our customers we realised there was a real demand for revisiting retro packaging and so we’re delighted to be able to dust off old photos and designs to capture the past 100 years and launch this retro classic collection for Christmas.”
