Convenience retailers can bolster their snacks range this Christmas as KP Nuts extends its tubs range with a Salted Caramel flavour.

The new 200g pack joins Original Salted, Dry Roasted and Honey Roasted flavours in the range, RRP £4.

The brand is also bringing back Maple Syrup Nut Mix and Frosted Honey Nut Mix in 225g bags.

Thirty-nine per cent of KP’s nut sales take place in the run up to Christmas. More than half of these sales are made in convenience, but the company estimates there is still a £6m opportunity to drive sales.

Last year, 3.7 million households bought nuts between October and December.
