ARN’s Ones to Watch 9 :  Your Regular Heads-Up on What’s Hot at Vending’s Favourite Wholesaler

ARN’s Ones to Watch 9 – Hello again! There’s plenty to look out for as winter makes way for spring and Easter is just around the corner…

We reckon that Lucozade Sport Zero, the zero sugar range from the UK’s biggest sport & energy drink brand, is going to be one of those products that changes the game. Lucozade Sport Zero offers drinkers the same great taste as Lucozade Energy, but with zero sugar – making it ideal for those looking for a drink with great flavour, but without the disadvantages of sugar.

Available in two flavours, Orange & Peach and Raspberry & Passion Fruit, Lucozade Sport Zero contains sodium and vitamin B3, which ‘help reduce tiredness’ and provide just four calories per 500ml bottle. Lucozade Sport is currently Britain’s fourth-largest energy drinks brand – its value sales soared by 32.3% to £165.1m in the 52 weeks to 10 September 2022 – but this new product is aimed at consumers ‘who don’t currently buy in to the Lucozade Sport brand’. So, think incremental sales…

12x500ml Case: £11.09

ARN’s Ones to Watch 9 : Meanwhile, Mars are right on the money with this year’s range of Easter products. Alongside the ever-popular Maltesers Bunny, there’s also Galaxy Caramel Mini Eggs and M&Ms Chocolate Eggs to enjoy. And there’s a deal, to boot: buy any five cases and you’ll be entered into a draw to win £200 in shopping vouchers. Which, these days, is not to be sniffed at…

Galaxy Caramel Mini Eggs 124839 80g, 1×22, £14.99
Maltesers Bunny 100534 29g, 1×32, £11.49
M&Ms Chocolate Eggs 124850 80g, 1×27, £18.49

ARN’s Ones to Watch 9 : If we had to illustrate the concept of ‘temptation’, we’d use a picture of Cadbury and Oreo’s Big Box of Treats. There are 64 (count ’em) units in each box, consisting of Cadbury Snack, Cadbury Nibbly Fingers, Cadbury Time Out Wafer and Oreos. And with the new price, that’s 15.6 p per unit, they’ll fly out!


That’s it from ARN’s Ones to Watch 9 : If we don’t see you at Vendex, have a Happy Easter!
