Food giant Nestlé has expanded its vegan-friendly Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles range with four new products.
The new Dessert Pastilles come in four pudding-inspired flavours: mango sorbet, blueberry pie, cherry bakewell and apple crumble. They are available in 139g sharing bags.
Nestlé reformulated the pastilles recipe last year in order to remove the gelatine.
Maria McKenna, Confectionery Marketing Manager, Nestlé Ireland said: “There has been an incredible response to our slightly softer, vegan-friendly Fruit Pastilles and we’re delighted consumers agree that the chew remains as fabulously fruity as ever. Now we are introducing an innovative twist on our classic pastilles, with four on-trend flavours that evoke the taste of some of the nation’s best loved desserts.
“Our technicians had a lot of fun creating Dessert Pastilles, and we think they have done an amazing job. We hope consumers love them as much as we do!”
Dessert Pastilles will launch into supermarkets in February.
Nestlé's portfolio of vegan products includes Jelly Tots, Carnation vegan condensed milk and Nescafé Gold dairy alternative lattes.
