Welcome to the May Edition of Snapshot
The last month has certainly been one of the strangest we have experienced within our industry. Though, thankfully, signs are showing that we are moving in the right direction (yay!). With all the changes and challenges we have faced; one thing has remained consistent – the taste of chocolate can make everything better.
In all seriousness, it has been both heartbreaking to hear the tales of hardship across the country and equally inspiring to hear the amazing stories coming out of this difficult time, too.
As an organisation, we have been fortunate to be able to continue to support retailers, wholesaler and suppliers Australia-wide by keeping them up to date with the changing trends within the industry.
So, without further ado, let’s see what May 2020 has in store for us…
Dairy Milk Marble is BACK
After 8 years away from the marketplace, May sees the highly anticipated return of another Cadbury’s classic – the Dairy Milk Marble. To remind you of exactly what you’ve been missing from your life – Marble has a delicious hazelnut praline centre, coated in Dairy Milk & Dream White Chocolate swirls…. is anyone else drooling yet?
Over the last couple of years, Cadbury Marble has found itself with a bit of a cult following; a Facebook group calling for the return of the bar reached over 24,000 followers! Well, more power to the people, we say. They have campaigned on social media, emailed and written letters to get their beloved bar back onto shelves.
Paul Chatfield, Marketing Director for Cadbury says;
“Given the current climate, we’re glad to bring a little joy to those around the country who have been calling for us to bring back Cadbury Dairy Milk Marble.”
Over the last couple of months that we’ve been through, we can’t help but agree that Australia needed a bit of good news.
Old Gold Cherry Ripe
Chips & Guacamole. Bacon & eggs. Cheese &…. anything. All classic ingredients by themselves but, pair them up and things just got a whole lot tastier.
The next delicious partnership to add to the list is a new release from the team at Mondelez – Old Gold inspired by Cherry Ripe. With generous chunks of 45% Cocoa Dark Chocolate, juicy cherry flavoured pieces and chewy coconut. There is bold in every bite.
Cadbury Really Nutty & Smooshed Bars
It seems that the little chocolate fairies at Mondelez HQ have been working overtime. Yup, ANOTHER Cadbury release. This time, something a little different.
Cadbury Really Nutty is a mix of Cadbury chocolate, wholesome roasted nuts and other little treats. Give that mouth of yours a treat with taste and texture.
If you’re looking for a chocolatey treat that you can pass off as healthy, then look no further than Cadbury Simply Smooshed Bars. They’re made with smooshed dates & nuts (that makes them healthy, right?), plus a whole lot of other delicious ingredients, dipped in Cadbury chocolate. Life’s all about balance, after all.
Darrell Lea Blocks
Discover a new kind of chocolate block with Darrell Lea.
Whether you like your chocolate with a side of liquorice – in which case, try their Raspberry Liquorice Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate Liquorice block – or if you prefer your chocolate a little more traditional, then their Milk Chocolate or Dark Chocolate block is for you. Either way, you’re in for a treat.
Milky Bar Whirl
We told you last month about Nestle’s exciting new KITKATS (Gooey Caramel and Mint Cookie Fudge). But, did we mention their other DELICIOUS release, Milky Bar Whirl? Yup, it’s Milky Bar with a whirl of milk chocolate. Oh. Wow. Form an orderly queue behind us to get your hands on some please….
Is it that time of year already?
We’re just about at that time of year again, when we go back to our old winter faithful, Fisherman’s Friends. There’s never been a better time to get your menthol hit, too. May 1st sees the start of an amazing consumer promotion where every week for 12 weeks, one lucky person will win $1,000! Their page in Snapshot will tell you more.
If you can’t quite handle the extra strong hit of Fisherman’s Friends, maybe Aussie Drops are the ones for you. Another classic for soothing a dry throat during the cooler months. Take your pick from Honey & Eucalyptus, Butter & Menthol, or straight up Eucalyptus.
Doritos Wonder Woman
The newest Limited-Edition release from Doritos sees the amazing combo of Burn and Xtra Power Sour Cream. Wrapped up in some of the snazziest packaging we have seen to date, with the fabulous Wonder Woman taking prime position.
