Confectionery supplier Paton’s has created a new range of fruit jelly confectionery designed for young travellers. The Fruity Friends products include Aussie Animal Jellies (140g), Chocolate Jelly Pineapples (140g), Chocolate Jelly Raspberries (140g) and Chocolate Bananas (75g) in brightly-coloured hangsell bags.
The range will make its duty-free debut with The Nuance Group Australia at Sydney International airport in June. Paton’s said its fruit jellies are made with natural colours, while the chocolate-covered items use the same milk chocolate found in the company’s premium product range.
Paton’s general manager sales and marketing James Kfouri said: “Our range of Tasty Treats launched in February—chocolate raisins, peanuts, almonds and so on—has been so successful that we decided the kids deserved a treat too. Our Chocolate Koalas have been jumping off the shelves so we decided animal-shaped fruit jellies and chocolate fruits would be a great addition to our range and so the Paton’s Fruity Friends were born.”
