Nestlé has launched its new Yorkie Orange chocolate bar in the UK and Ireland, made with sustainably sourced cocoa under the Nestlé Cocoa Plan.

The 46g Limited Edition Yorkie Orange bar and 72g Yorkie Orange Duo bar are now available in a range of supermarkets and convenience stores.

Amy Kendall, Brand Manager for Yorkie said: “Yorkie has been a consumer favourite for 45 years, and we’re very excited to introduce a brand-new twist on this chocolate classic. Delicious chunks of our signature Yorkie creamy milk chocolate are enlivened with irresistible orange to create a moreish taste sensation that we hope will become a firm favourite.”

According to the chocolate giant, there has been a resurgence in the popularity of orange-flavoured chocolate in recent years, with sales growing by a whopping 23% in the total market in 2020.

Amy Kendall added: “We know how much shoppers in the UK and Ireland love to try new products from their favourite brands. We think Yorkie Orange is a winning combination and can’t wait for people to try it!”
