Retailers looking to tap into the £600m opportunity that crisps, snacks and nuts present at Christmas can now stock KP Snacks’ festive range.

KP Snacks is expanding its nuts range with XL Crunchy Coated Sweet Chilli and Lemon flavour peanuts, RRP £4.29, as well as giving two lines a seasonal makeover. Pom-Bear Snowmen and Hula Hoops Stars will be available in packs of 120g and 210g.

Cheese Footballs are also back by popular demand and will be joined by new Salt and Vinegar Reindeer Bites, RRP £3.29.

Matt Collins, convenience trading controller, explained that consumer spending is increasing year on year so there is a huge opportunity for retailers to drive sales.

“The key to making the most of festive sales is planning early and stocking a strong range of quality, bestselling brands,” he said.
