Skittles in a bottle

Skittles is launching a new bottle format for its original fruits flavour, as it taps into growing consumer demand for confectionery products to enjoy on the go. The red container is designed to stand out on shelf, with an easy-to-open, resealable lid to ensure people can enjoy Skittles when they're on the move.

Dan Newell, Wrigley marketing manager confections, commented: "We've identified a huge gap in the market for the on-the-go occasion and responded to it with the launch of the new Skittles bottle format.

Skittles is performing extremely well, and this new pack will drive sales for the brand and cement its position as one of the leaders of the sugar confectionery category."

The launch will be supported by social media and the popular 'Touch' television ad, which will run until July. There will also be newly designed pos.
