HACKETTSTOWN, N.J., Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- SNICKERS® is smoothing things out with their biggest product innovation in the brand's recent history – replacing classic crunch with smooth satisfaction in three new varieties of Creamy SNICKERS®. The new Creamy SNICKERS® Bars will launch in January 2019 featuring everything fans love about SNICKERS® – gooey caramel and a milk chocolate coating – and the addition of freshly ground, creamy nut butters including: Almond Butter, Peanut Butter and Maple Almond Butter.
With the popularity of nut butters continuing to grow1, Creamy SNICKERS® offers fans a new, on-trend taste experience full of delicious goodness, made with no artificial colors, flavors or sweeteners.
"For nearly a century, fans have made the classic SNICKERS® bar an icon with its satisfying layers of nougat, caramel and signature peanut crunch," said Josh Olken, Brand Director, SNICKERS® Brand. "We listened to our consumers' desires for new tastes like almond butter and paired it with an innovation on texture. With Creamy SNICKERS® bars, our fans can discover new tastes, and can now get SNICKERS® satisfaction in both crunchy and smooth.
Fans will be able to find the new flavors nationwide at local food, mass, convenience and drug stores beginning January 2019 in Single (1.4 ounces), Share (2.8 ounces) and Stand Up Pouch (7.7 ounces) sizes.
