KP Snacks launches festive packaging for Tyrrells


KP Snacks has announced the launch of limited edition Christmas packaging for its premium snack brand, Tyrrells. The special Christmas packaging will feature across Tyrrells Hand Cooked Crisps and Veg Crisps sharing bags including classic flavours: Mature Cheddar & Chive, Sea Salt & Cider Vinegar, Lightly Sea Salted, Sweet Chilli & Red Pepper, Sea Salt & Black Pepper, and Mixed Root Veg with Sea Salt.

The new pack design adds a pinch of festivity to the familiar pack images by using a snow globe, an object synonymous with the festive season.

At £1.3bn, sharing is the largest segment in CSN, and growing strongly at +6.2 per cent.
