Two classics in one: OREO® Hot Chocolate now available for c-store channel
Monday 8 February, 2016Consumers have a new way to warm up with two classic treats in one – OREO® Hot Chocolate. The new beverage that is flavoured just right with the iconic cookie is now available in convenience stores.
It is made, marketed and sold under license from Mondelēz International, Inc. by Kerry Convenience, one of the nation’s leading formulators, manufacturers and distributors of hot, cold and frozen beverages in the C-Store, foodservice and retail channels.
“The taste of OREO has been loved by generations, and we are pleased to bring it to consumers in the form of another all-time favourite – hot chocolate,” said Sharon Porter, director of marketing, Kerry Convenience. “The ability to deliver these flavours is possible thanks to Kerry’s in-depth understanding of the consumer, the c-store channel and its needs regarding the equipment and product development technology necessary to deliver high-quality dispensed beverages. These products represent Kerry’s expertise in delivering precise taste solutions, which is part of our commitment to make products people enjoy more and feel better about.”
“OREO Hot Chocolate also offers c-store operators the opportunity to execute cross category promotions, driving sales across both the packaged snack and hot dispensed categories, while engaging and delighting consumers,” said Porter.
