product news: Mars Wrigley Confectionery launches new Extra format

Mars Wrigley Confectionery is launching new Extra Minis Handyboxes, fun smaller pellets in a portable format, which allow consumers to “choose their chew” with as many or as few pellets as they like.

Breathe easy

When BP/M&S approach a supplier wanting to stock their product, you know it must be a good one. And that's exactly what happened with Peppersmith the mint and gum company started by two ex-Innocent Drinks employees. As a result, BP is now selling Peppersmith's 100% xylitol mints and gum in 214 of its M&S stores.

Pellet potential

It's not often that you buy a packet of chewing gum then, as a result, drive off in a brand new car. But that's exactly what happened to Airwaves gum consumer Theresa Cowling from Oxford, who won a Ford Focus ST as part of the brand's Full Throttle promotion. Her prize was presented to her by two drivers from the Airwaves Racing British Tour Car Championship team Mat Jackson and Tom Onslow-Cole as the competition formed part of Airwaves' ongoing sponsorship of the British Tour Car Championship.
