Nestlé has revealed the latest theme for its popular range of limited edition Smarties and this time the brand is going under the sea.
Smarties Mermaid Edition will hit shelves in Asda this week in a £1 sharing bag complete with a fish tail design on pack and Smarties in yellow and pink hues inside.
These special editions have proved hugely popular with Smarties fans and the mermaid themed edition follows hot on the heels of successful launches for Smarties Unicorn Edition and Smarties Llama Edition, the latter of which was introduced earlier this year.
Nestlé has also seen success with products made up of purely orange Smarties and seasonal editions like ‘Scaries’ for Halloween and an Easter egg version of the popular Unicorn variant.
Lucy Fawcett, Assistant Brand Manager for Smarties said: “We know how much people love these packs and, with mermaids being increasingly on trend, it was a no-brainer for this to be our next limited edition for Smarties.”

Today (Thursday 11th July 2019) marks the grand opening of the brand new onsite health and fitness facilities at Nestlé House. As of tomorrow, Nestlé York office and factory employees have full access, as well as those based at Nestlé’s Product Technology Centre, the global R&D headquarters for confectionery, 24 hours a day, and 7 days a week. The upgrade forms part of the investment revealed earlier in the year when improvements including a new employee restaurant were unveiled at the site, and forms part of Nestlé’s wider wellness strategy.
Physical activity and exercise can have immediate and long-term health benefits. While lower blood pressure and a healthy heart are certainly perks of exercise, there’s more evidence to suggest it boosts our mental wellbeing.
Nesquik, the iconic family favourite milk drink, has joined the long list of flavours available in the Nescafé Dolce Gusto system. Providing the familiar cocoa flavour adored by generations, each serving of Nescafé Dolce Gusto Nesquik hot chocolate provides a source of calcium and also offers a generous foam top, giving drinkers a unique and indulgent experience.
Nesquik is the latest Nestlé brand available within the Nescafé Dolce Gusto system, which also offers the classic Chococino and Chococino Caramel hot chocolates under the Nescafé Dolce Gusto label.
Earlier this year, Nestlé welcomed the iconic American Starbucks coffee brand to Nescafé Dolce Gusto, bringing coffee shop favourites like Starbucks Caramel Macchiato and Starbucks Americano House Blend Medium Roast, into the home of millions of Nescafé Dolce Gusto users around the world.
In addition to introducing customer favourites, Nescafé Dolce Gusto has also embraced the origins trend with its Colombia Sierra Nevada Lungo, Peru Cajamarca Espresso, Honduras Corquin Espresso and Mexico Chiapas Americano drinks, offering a world-class, premium, organic origin coffee experience.
Nestlé is bringing the flavour of Japan to the UK this summer with the launch of KitKat Green Tea Matcha.
KitKat Green Tea Matcha is inspired by one of the most popular of the 350+ KitKat varieties that have been available in Japan over the years and follows requests from chocolate lovers to make innovative KitKat flavours available to consumers outside Japan.
Matcha is a traditional drink made from powdered green tea that has been enjoyed for centuries in Japan, often as part of an elaborate tea ceremony. In KitKat Green Tea Matcha, it is combined with smooth white chocolate to give a sweet and fragrant flavour.
KitKat Green Tea Matcha is made with no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives using Matcha green tea from Japan and China.
Originally launched across Europe earlier this year, this green coloured four-finger treat will now be available exclusively in Tesco in the World Foods aisle and in One Stop and Booker Retail Partners from this week.
A technical breakthrough in confectionery packaging will see Nestlé’s ‘YES!’ snack bar range wrapped in recyclable paper for the first time.
UK based experts, working at Nestlé’s confectionery R&D centre in York, have found a way to use a recyclable paper wrapper in a high-speed ‘flow wrap cold seal’ packaging line. It represents a world first for a process that, in the past, was only suitable for plastic films and laminates.
Nestlé’s ‘YES!’ range of fruit-based, and nut-based bars will become the first brand to convert to the new recyclable paper wrapper to be rolled out from this month.
Stefano Agostini, CEO for Nestlé in the UK and Ireland said: “YES! represents exactly what more and more people are demanding from manufacturers like Nestlé now and for the future. Last year we introduced YES! as an entirely new brand using wholesome ingredients and offering a healthier snacking option of tasty fruit and nut bars.
