    HARIBO unveils Valentine’s range for 2024 including share bag, gift box

    HARIBO has unveiled its highly anticipated Valentine’s Day product line up for 2024. The “famous day of love” is a key time of year for the confectionery industry, as consumers increasingly seek high-quality yet affordable treats to mark the occasion with – whether a sweet treat to enjoy, or small gift for someone special.

    Tapping into seasonal spending habits, HARIBO has released its Heart Throbs range across stores nationwide.

    The launch demonstrates how the brand is driving innovation in the confectionary category by using its unique position and iconic sweet pieces to create a seasonally relevant product design at Valentine’s that is popular with consumers. Combined with its reliably fruity flavour, these aspects make HARIBO a top choice for seasonal moments like Valentine’s Day.

    The launch of the limited-edition range will also be amplified across earned, social, and owned media to fuel excitement and talkability.

    “The HARIBO Heart Throbs range celebrates one of our most beloved sweet pieces and is a perfect fit for Valentine’s Day,” said Catherine Johnson, Category Strategy & Shopper Marketing Controller at HARIBO UK. “Being a clear fan favourite, we knew we had to bring them back for 2024 to help people celebrate the season whether to treat friends, family, or someone special. We’re excited to see them back on shelves, but hurry; they’re available for a limited time only”.
