Kellogg's has announced that it has expanded its Rice Krispies Squares offering with the introduction of a new American range – including Cookies & Cream and Salted Caramel Pretzel flavours.
The launch comes in response to the increasing popularity of American flavour variants – driving double-digit growth of 26% since 2017, the cereal giant said.
The new additions to the range join Limited Edition Rice Krispies Squares Chocolatey Orange and Birthday Cake Thins – both innovations launched in 2020 and contributed towards the brand’s outperformance of the market over the last 12 months, it added.
Commenting on the new launch, Neil Rogers, brand & activation manager Kellogg’s Ireland said: "Our insights show that American flavours drive strong taste appeal with shoppers and we were keen to tap into that with our new Rice Krispies Squares Cookies & Cream and Salted Caramel Pretzel."
"We had a year of innovation for the brand in 2020, with limited edition Chocolatey Orange and Birthday Cake Thins launching, so we’re looking forward to continuing the momentum with our launches in 2021," he added.
The new bars are available now at an RRP of €2.25 (pack of four).
