A raspberry & peach flavour is being added to the Trident Splash gum range. It is the best-selling Splash line in Sweden and also a top seller in Norway so Cadbury Trebor Bassett (CTB) has high hopes for it here. Rrp is 50p.

At the same, CTB is launching a new pack format for Splash strawberry & lime and vanilla & mint. The Trident Splash gum ball is described as a ’playful new pack with a wide mouth that is filled with sugar-free gum’.

It is expected to be a particular hit with heavy gum users. The balls contain 40 pellets and have a rrp of £2.29.

When CTB launched Trident in January, it promised to bring £100m-worth of growth to the UK gum category and according to AC Nielsen figures, it will be half way towards doing this within its first year of launch.

The brand is currently backed by a £10m multi-media marketing campaign.
