Adding to the Responsibly Made for Kids range, this trio of fruity flavours contains no artificial colours or flavours. With a clear logo on pack to help parents make informed decisions about the nutritional content, this lolly contains 44 calories, with a maximum of 9.9g of sugar per portion and adheres to Unilever’s responsible marketing to children principles.

To continue the 100 year celebrations, Viennetta is introducing a new Birthday Cake flavour, whilst also marking 40 years since Viennetta sold its first ever dessert. Combining delicious vanilla and strawberry flavour ice creams with Viennetta’s classic crisp chocolate flavour layers, this sweet treat is topped with multi-coloured sprinkles for added fun. What’s more, the new flavour contains no artificial colours or flavours.
