The Extra Refreshers chewing gum range has been updated by Mars Wrigley in response to changing consumer preferences both in terms of flavor and format.
The gum will now come in the new Tropical flavor to tap into its popularity amongst Generation Z, which will be right at home within the existing range that includes Peppermint and Spearmint. The gum will also come in a new larger bottle format to address consumers looking for more product and enhanced value.
Senior Brand Manager for Extra at Mars Wrigley Sasha Storey spoke on the updated Extra Refreshers chewing gum range saying, "Whilst individual packs remain essential lines for stores of all sizes, the larger bottle format is set to be one of the bestselling formats of the year. Gum bottle will be driving the growth in 2021 with 1.7% projected growth so we recommend it is stocked alongside core single packs for maximum sales success. Flavours are also set to grow especially as we head into summer so it is very fitting for us to launch bottles with a new tropical flavour and we cannot wait to see the response from shoppers."
