Nestlé has unveiled their latest chocolatey treat and it looks incredible as they’ve put a twist on a classic… introducing Smartie Buttons!
The chocolate giant has created milk, white and orange-flavoured buttons that will contain mini Smarties encased in heavenly chocolate. This marks the first time in 83 years that the favourite will be available as a button, which means it’s a great new way to enjoy one of the nation’s favourite chocolate sweets.
The Smartie Buttons are expected to arrive in the UK and Ireland shops from this week and come in sharing bags and single packs.
The milk chocolate variety will be available as a single 32.5g pack and 90g sharing pack and the white chocolate version comes in a single 30g pack, and the sharing pack is 85g. Orange Smartie Buttons, which come in an 85g sharing bag, will be exclusively available at Asda.
Brand Manager for Smarties, Alberto Pisanello, said: “We know that Smarties holds special memories for so many people, and they are much loved for their bright colours, taste and texture. At the same time, consumers tell us they like their favourite brands to keep things fresh with exciting innovations and new varieties to try.
“Our Smarties Buttons offer all the fun, colour and crunch of Smarties, enveloped in a delicious smooth milk, white or orange-flavoured chocolate button. It’s Smarties reimagined, and we are tremendously excited to introduce this new addition to the family. We hope fans love them as much as we do!”
Smarties Buttons are made at Nestlé’s factory in Fawdon, near Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. The factory is home to some of the UK’s best-known confectionery brands, which includes Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles, Rolo, Carmac, Munchies and Toffee Crisp.
