The Galaxy Fusions chocolate bar is a new offering from Mars Wrigley UK as a product that's targeted towards young adult shoppers in a bid to satisfy demand for premium options. The chocolates will be launching in the spring in the convenience store market, and will come in three flavor options including Dark Chocolate with Raspberry Meringue, Blonde Chocolate with Sea Salt and Dark Chocolate with 70% Cocoa. The products build on the increasing popularity of premium chocolate bars, which has grown by 19% over the last year, according to Nielsen Scantrack data.
Senior Brand Manager, Galaxy Elyse O'Connor spoke on the new Galaxy Fusions chocolate bar saying, "We know that the new redesign will attract new customers and boost sales for retailers by standing out on shelves and starting conversation. But while Galaxy is looking beautiful on the outside, we’re also re-thinking about what is inside. We’re thrilled to kick off 2021 with our NPD announcements with Galaxy Orange Block and Galaxy Fusions. The new vibrant and adventurous flavors are bound to drive sales and are the perfect fit to complement the fresh new look and feel of the brand. But that’s not all, we can’t wait to unveil more exciting news throughout the new year as we continue to empower the nation to ‘Choose Pleasure’ – watch this space!”
