UPDATE:-This is starting to gather momentum so it’d be a great idea to get your orders in to ARN asap! Early feedback is that the bars are going down a storm!
Planet Vending is delighted to share some news with you from Nestlé. We had a sneak preview of the unmarked bar at Vendex Midlands and it was AMAZING! How fabulous to find it in Vending machines again.
After an absence of eight years, Yorkie® Honeycomb is back!
Featuring solid chunks of smooth honeycomb flavour milk chocolate and crunchy pieces of sweet honeycomb, the limited edition bar is a delicious twist on the classic chunky Yorkie®.
Michael Kehoe, Brand Executive for Nestlé Confectionerysaid: “ Yorkie® fans are a passionate bunch, especially when it comes to honeycomb! We’ve had more requests for this bar than for any other flavour, so we’re chuffed to be bringing it back for 2023. It’s the creamy Yorkie® milk chocolate you know and love, enlivened with honeycomb flavour and real pieces of crunchy honeycomb.”
Honeycomb is the number one flavour in milk chocolate1 and is growing by more than 35 per cent year on year2.
Michael added: “As a limited edition, it won’t be around for long, so get your hands on a bar while you can!”
Yorkie® was launched in 1976 by Rowntree Mackintosh to help break into the solid chocolate bar sector. The company considered several more unlikely names, including ‘Jones’ and ‘O’Hara’ before deciding to name the bar after the city in which it is made.
Almost half a century later, Yorkie® continues to be manufactured at Nestlé UK’s York factory, where 66 million bars are made each year. The factory is also home to KitKat®, Aero®, Polo® and Milkybar®. Yorkie® Honeycomb has no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives and is made with cocoa sustainably sourced under the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.
The Yorkie® Honeycomb is available to order now from Automatic Retailing Northern.
