Pladis has revealed its Christmas range for 2018, featuring rebranded classics, the return of festive favourites and new product launches.

In this year’s Christmas campaign, Merry Biscuits Everyone, ​the biscuit manufacturer hoped to highlight the “key role”​ its products play in the lead up to and during seasonal festivities.

Joining this year’s Christmas range is a special edition McVitie’s Jaffa Cake tin, designed to look like one of the snacks that had been half eaten. It will appear alongside a festive redesign of its Jaffa Cake boxes, designed to look like a cracker.

Pladis is also launching a Jacob’s Biscuits for Cheese tin with a limited heritage design for the holidays. It joins a festive selection variant of the product.

Christmas makeover

McVitie’s Milk Chocolate Digestives were the last product that was getting a Christmas makeover, revisiting the post box tin design from previous years.

Pladis products returning for Christmas 2018 included McVitie’s white Chocolate digestive Nibbles bags; McVitie’s Moments, Victoria, Family Circle and Savoury Favourites selection boxes; Carr’s Selection box and Jacob’s Savours selection box.

The manufacturer will also be bringing back its range of Jacob’s caddies – tubs of its snacks with resealable lids – in four variants, Twiglets, Mini Cheddars, Festive Snack Bites and Treeselets.

Seasonal biscuits delivered £6.4m ​of sales into the convenience retail channel last year, according to data from market research firm IRI.

£6.4 million ​of sales

Pladis’ Christmas range comes hot off the heels of the launch of a new thin variant of its Jacob’s Cracker Crisps.

Designed to combine the crunch of a cracker with the flavour of a crisp, Jacob’s Cracker Crisp Thins are available in three variants: Mature Cheddar & Roasted Onion, Sea Salt & Cracked Black Pepper, and Thai Sweet Chilli.

Meanwhile, a new contender in breakfast beverages has emerged in the form of Lizi’s Breakfast Drink,​ a product made by Pioneer Foods (UK) that takes premium granola brand Lizi’s into a new category.
