“This limited-edition flavour epitomises what the relaunch is all about – exciting, adventurous flavours that appeal to a more diverse, younger millennial demographic, without alienating our loyal generation X customer base."
“The launch of Cherry Blossom is timed to capitalise on Valentine’s Day and, with its romantic pink hue and floral packaging, it will have great on shelf standout in store.”
The limited-edition Cherry Blossom flavour is available exclusively from Ocado for a limited time, with a suggested retail price of £4.20.© FoodBev Media Ltd 2017
