KP Snacks is expanding its Butterkist popcorn range with the addition of a Crunchy Hazelnut Chocolate popcorn variety.

The new variety will be available in stores from late July, offering consumers a low-calorie snack option that capitalizes on the growing popularity of hazelnut flavours in confectionery.

The product will come in both a 155g sharing and a 70g £1.25 price-marked pack (PMP) format. Sharing and large PMP snacking formats are currently growing by 12.1% and 34.4% respectively.
