McCoy’s Fire Pit is available in multipacks (RRP £1.70), sharing bags (89p) and £1 price-marked packs. The launch will be supported by a £2m investment in a multimedia campaign in 2021.

Flavour is the most important factor in crisps, snacks and nuts and synonymous with full-on flavour, McCoy’s is perfectly placed to reignite formats and drive category growth by delivery variety and excitement.”
