There are three pack formats: a roll pack which has a rrp of 44p; a £1 bag; and a 215g bag with a rrp of £1.49.
The introduction coincides with the launch of a £2m marketing campaign which supports the entire Maynards line-up. The activity includes TV advertising and point-of-sale material.
The total Maynards brand is worth £55.5m, with Maynards Wine Gums the biggest selling sugar bag in independent stores (Nielsen data).
