shop talk

Easter officially marks the start of the ice cream season hurrah, I say, as I love the stuff. There are loads of new lines to try so I've started already.

Tic Tac's summer crop

ic Tac is being launched in a new strawberry fields flavour. Brand owner Ferrero says fruity flavours have been highly successful for the brand, with last summer's limited editions driving incremental growth.

Febreze gets into cars

P&G is launching a seven-strong range of air fresheners for cars under the Febreze brand. The range specifically features scents and packaging designed to target men and women separately.

Patriotic pots

Handmade by Hadley's has relaunched its ice cream pots to appeal to patriotic consumers. There are also three new flavours including lemon curd and rhubarb & ginger.

Trio of new bars

Lindt has added three new chocolate bars to its range: dark wasabi; dark coconut intense; and caramel with a touch of sea salt. Recommended retail price is £1.83.

Salsa tobacco launch

The Scandinavian Tobacco Group UK (STG UK) is launching Salsa, a new range of roll-your-own (RYO) tobacco, following a successful trial in a limited number of cash and carry and multiple retail accounts. It describes Salsa as a "premium Virginia blend" and says this, together with its eye-catching packaging and competitive trade margins, will help retailers make the most of the rapid growth in the RYO market.

The joys of Spring

Highland Spring has launched a major TV advertising campaign to help bolster its position as Britain's number-one sparkling water and number-two brand overall.

Guava packs a punch

The Rockstar energy range is being boosted by the addition of a fruit punch variant.

Going for growth

Kepak Convenience Foods (KCF) is spending £4.5m to support its microwaveable snacking brands including Rustlers and Zugos this year, in a bid to double the size of its £105m business in the next five years.
