    KP Snacks has announced it is expanding its classic heritage brand Wheat Crunchies with the launch of the popular Spicy Tomato flavour in a 70g £1.25 PMP and a 45g Grab Bag.

    Rolling into stores from mid-July, the Wheat Crunchies Spicy Tomato PMP and Grab Bag capitalise on “Spicy” being the third fastest growing flavour profile, engaging shoppers and driving sales for retailers.
