ARN’s Ones To Watch 14 : This Month’s Must-Buys From Vending’s Favourite Wholesaler

ARN’s Ones To Watch 14 : This month you can get in a Twirl to make a mint, enjoy a Boost and become a Heuligan… It’s all happening this month!

Hello again

Just back from the mayhem that was Vendex – of which more later – but first, some important news to share with you.

ARN's Ones to Watch 14Allan Walker is one of them. Are you, too? One of those people who get so tied up in what they’re doing that they forget to eat? When he gets to the bear-with-a-sore-head stage Allan sends out for a bottle of something called Huel. Well, I’ve got some good news for him. He won’t have to send out anymore, because we’ve listed Huel and it’s in stock right now.

Huel, (pronounced ‘hool’ – users refer to themselves as ‘Hueligans’, apparently), is basically a meal in a bottle. It consists of protein, essential fats; carbs, fibre and – count ’em – twenty-six essential vitamins and minerals. We’re offering 2 flavours, vanilla and chocolate. If you have customers where healthy options are popular, or where the staff often work through their lunch breaks (that still happens, I’m told), then this up-to-the-minute product will be well worth a couple of spirals. Or a place in your smart fridge.

ARN's Ones to Watch 14ARN’s Ones to Watch 14 :  And here’s another Boost for you, or rather, a full range of Boosts. We’ve never stocked the full range of this popular drink before, so rest assured that the varieties we have been selling have exceeded our sales expectations. Boost is an alternative to Red Bull, but unlike many of those ‘me too’ products, the Boost brand has some cachet of its own; so much so that it was recently snapped up by our friends at A. G. Barr. It’s not made in Scotland from girders, but it’s pretty good all the same. There’s no space to list all the prices and sizes here, but they’re featured on our latest offer sheet. I’d urge you to take advantage…

ARN’s Ones to Watch 14 : You’ll find that Cadbury Twirl and Cadbury Mint Twirl are also featured this month. At £12.99 for a 48 x 43g outer, Cadbury Mint Twirl is available at our best ever price, but think on: this mega offer ends in December, so no humming or hawing please; get your order in toot sweet, because when they’re gone, they’re…

ARN's Ones to Watch 14And finally, back to Vendex. Of all the ARN staff that were involved with the show, it wasn’t the team on the stand that bore the brunt. In fact, it was the people back at the ranch who were run off their feet, as the boys phoned through your orders for the fabulous ‘today only’ offers we had on our stand. So, hats off to Anthony Hall, Luke Dixon, Stacey Moat and Claire Toner. You played a blinder and I’m proud of you.

Which only leaves me to thank all those customers who braved the crush to visit us in Leeds. It was genuinely heart-warming and to be honest, inspiring to see so many of you. Your presence ensured that Vendex was a huge success for us. We all hope it was for you, too.

Ah well, that’s it for ARN’s Ones to Watch 14 so it’s back to work for me.

Until we meet again, gan canny.
