By maintaining a £1 price point, Swizzels aims to ensure its Drumstick-flavoured mallows remain a fast-moving and profitable product for retailers.
Marshmallows continue to be a popular choice among consumers, with the category now having an estimated worth of £24.4m and showing growth of 22.3% in symbols and indies over the last year.
To coincide with trade activity, an innovative social media campaign will further drive sales by raising awareness of the product among consumers. The #MarvellousOrMadness consumer campaign will run for eight weeks from Saturday 1 April and invites consumers across the UK to share the weird and wonderful ways they enjoy eating their mallows in return for various prizes.
“Mallows continue to grow in popularity,” Brand Manager Holly Drescher said. “They are the ideal product for on-the-go eating, sharing occasions and home baking. The creative opportunities for Marvellous Mallows are year-round – toasting by summer campfires, making s’mores, topping on hot chocolate on Bonfire Night or creating something yummy with the kids during half term.
“We’re pleased to be able to maintain the important £1 price point despite competitors moving higher. We want to continue offering a great tasting product at a great price.”
