Mars Wrigley UK has announced that Opal Fruits will be returning to British shelves for one final time after the treat sold out in a matter of weeks in 2020.  

The cult classic will also be offered in its original flavour format, meaning that those seeking a dose of fruity nostalgia will be able to enjoy both a lemon and lime treat, some 23 years after Starburst and blackcurrant replaced the much-loved citrus stalwarts in 1998. 

The limited-edition Opal Fruits will be back on shelves only for 12-weeks, and only while stocks last.

Mars Wrigley’s Head of Fruit Confections, Victoria Gell said: “Opal Fruits were snapped up at lightning-fast speed last year. It was the hottest confectionery ticket in town!  So much so in fact, our sweet factory has been working overtime to make sure Brits who love their retro treats get their fruity fix one last time before Opal Fruits disappear from shelves forever!” 

Opal Fruits is widely available nationwide and available as a Share Pouch (152g, RRP £1).
