ARN’s Ones to Watch 3 : September’s Tempting Offers from Vending’s Leading Wholesaler

Hello again, and welcome to ARN’s Ones to Watch 3. ARN has four great offers for September.

 KitKat Chunky Salted Caramel Popcorn
Over the years, special editions of KitKat have been issued as ‘Limited Editions’ to celebrate summer. We’ve been tempted by Peanut Butter, Hazelnut; Coconut, Chocolate Fudge and New York Cheesecake.

This summer, aficionados can discover a deliciously sweet and salty variant in the form of KitKat Chunky Salted Caramel Popcorn. Caramel, apparently, is the most popular milk chocolate variant in the UK, purchased by 64% of all UK households. Meanwhile, penetration of salted caramel has trebled in the last four years, and one in four shoppers have now tried a salted caramel product.

So the potential is there to get those spirals moving…  The latest addition to the KitKat Chunky line up weighs in at 42g and features the brand’s classic wafer alongside an indulgent layer of salted caramel popcorn filling, all covered by KitKat’s trademark smooth milk chocolate. And this month, ARN will give you a case for free if you buy ten. So, that’s good then! ARN’s Ones to Watch 3

Wrigley’s Extra

ARN’s Ones to Watch 3
Ready for vending in a smart sleeve…

ARN’s Ones to Watch 3 : Here’s something to chew over: Did you know that gum is the No. 2 Impulse SKU? Or that 1 in 4 of your customers buys chewing gum at least once a week? Would you be surprised to learn that 29% of consumers chew gum after enjoying a hot drink? Better yet, were you aware than sales of gum are 100% incremental? You won’t sell fewer choccy bars because you’re selling gum.

It all makes for a great opportunity to boost revenue. Trials of Wrigley’s Extra, in 3 machines at travel locations show an average ROS of 6.5 sales a week – and that was during lock down… Taking the machines together over an eight-week period, Wrigley’s Extra was No 5 in the sales Top Ten. Normally, the price will be £32 per case of 100. That’s 32p per pre-filled unit. To get you started, ARN is offering Wrigley’s Extra at £28, bringing the cost down to a very tempting 28p per pre-filled unit. So, don’t delay, order today!

More good news, this time from XITE Nootropic Energy. XITE is the first range of nootropic energy drinks to drop in the UK which promises ‘to help you think, feel and perform at your best.’ Nootropics are supplements that can be taken to improve mental performance and are most often used to boost memory, focus, creativity, intelligence and motivation. Unlike traditional energy drinks, XITE uses natural green bean caffeine to energise and power up without the dreaded crash and contains three active nootropics, which help support mental performance.

The offer consists of two delicious, naturally flavoured, varieties including Raspberry & Watermelon and Peach & Passion Fruit, both of which are zero sugar, naturally flavoured, vegan and diabetic friendly and full of ginseng – a winning combination to create a healthy energy drink for everyone.

Give it a go while the sun is still shining! ARN is offering XITE drinks on a bogof basis: you buy one, you get one free.

YO-YO Bear
Yo-Yo Bear is a healthy snack aimed firmly at those parents who want to help their kids enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Yo-Yo Bear are delicious, real fruit rolls; perfect for lunchboxes as on-the-go healthy snack. ARN is offering 2 great flavours: Strawberry and Blackcurrant.

The product is high in fibre, has no added sugar, is made of 100% fruit – never ‘concentrate’ – and counts as I of your ‘5-a-day’. It’s Schools Compliant, CQ Compliant and VAT free and during September, ARN are offering a great deal: if you buy just 2 cases, they’ll give you another for free.

That’s it for ARN’s Ones to Watch 3, there’ll be another issue month.
