Year on year, there is an increasing demand for vegan and plant-based foods, snacks and desserts. The confectionery industry has been developing this even further with companies like Nestlé launching an exciting addition to its Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles range – its New Dessert Pastilles come in four delicious flavours – mango sorbet, blueberry pie, cherry bakewell and apple crumble; and are available in a 139g sharing bag. Ritter Sport unveiled a quartet of delicious chocolate bars that are accidentally vegan, and Mars Inc announced the launch of two brand-new vegan chocolate bars.
