Perfetti Van Melle has broadened its Chupa Chups Big Babol chewing gum range with the launch of a Green Apple variety.
The new flavour is available in a pack of six pieces of individually wrapped gum, at an RRP of 55p. Its launch comes as Big Babol is currently the second-highest-performing brand in the bubblegum category, according to Circana Unify figures.
