Imperial has added three further flavours to its blu bar range: Tropical Mix, Apple Ice and Mint Ice (rrp £5.99). The company says that collectively, these flavour characteristics, including apple, pineapple, mint and mango, accounted for 10.75% of all vaping sales over the last six months, with their share contribution almost doubling versus the same period a year ago.
The blu bar range offers a compact design for on-the-go vaping convenience, with each device providing up to 600 puffs.
Tom Gully, Imperial Tobacco’s head of consumer marketing UK&I, commented: “Disposables are the main driving force behind sales within the vaping category at present, with figures showing the sector has seen a 58% value growth in the last half year alone. To help retailers take advantage of the sales and profits available in this growing category, our three new blu bar variants have been carefully selected to tap into the top taste trends in the market. With a range of 13 different flavours now available, our blu bar range provides everything retailers need to cater for a wide range of consumer taste preferences.”
