Canadians will go "nutty" for the bold, new flavour of M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies
TORONTO, May 6, 2019 /CNW/ - M&M'S® is taking hazelnut spread where it's never gone before – inside everyone's favourite chocolate candies! The highly-anticipated M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies have officially launched in Canada. Featuring a creamy hazelnut spread centre, covered in delicious milk chocolate, this new flavour from M&M'S® offers a delectable combination of chocolate and hazelnut flavour in every bite-sized piece.
M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies will become a permanent addition to the M&M'S® brand's iconic line-up, as the second new soft centre innovation after M&M'S® Caramel, which launched in 2017.
The announcement of M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies in the US earlier this year proved that hazelnut fans will do whatever it takes to get their hands on this tantalizing new flavour from M&M'S®. Now, the same hazelnut frenzy is about to take off in Canada as this highly anticipated flavour officially hits Canadian shelves.
"Our fans have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies in Canada, and we're so excited to finally be able to release this new product," says Jaclyn Sutton, head of Marketing and Strategic Demand at Mars Wrigley Confectionery Canada. "We're constantly innovating at M&M'S®, exploring new ideas and flavours, to keep our fans excited and engaged," says Sutton.
M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies are the latest in a lineup of exciting announcements and innovations from the brand. The new flavour launches on the heels of Flavour Vote 2019, which features three new international flavours from around the world, available in Canada until June 24th, and just months following the launch of M&M'S® first-ever chocolate bar.
M&M'S® Hazelnut Spread Chocolate Candies have begun rolling out in retail stores nationwide in an eye-catching teal package ― in Singles (1.35 oz.), Share Size (2.53 oz.) and Sharing Size Stand Up Pouch (8.3 oz.) and will be widely available as of May 6th, 2019.
