Nestlé has introduced a white chocolate variant to its Munchies confectionery range in the UK.
The limited-edition offering is available in 94g sharing bags and features a soft caramel and biscuit centre, covered in white chocolate. It is free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
The new white chocolate edition joins existing variants in the Munchies range, including Original Munchies, Munchies Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Munchies Cookie Dough.
Cat Mews, Munchies brand manager at Nestlé, said: “Munchies has been a popular brand for over 60 years, but we know that consumers love an on-trend twist to a classic too.
“Fans couldn’t wait to try Munchies Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Munchies Cookie Dough when they launched last year, and we are sure that white chocolate Munchies will prove just as popular an addition to the range.”
Munchies have been produced in a variety of flavours over the years, including chocolate orange, hazelnut banoffee and mint.
The chocolate confectionery is made at Nestlé’s Fawdon factory, near Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, which also makes brands such as Fruit Pastilles, Fruit Gums, Breakaway, Matchmakers, Rolo, and Toffee Crisp.
White chocolate Munchies will be available exclusively in Asda from 13 August.
