Nestlé has announced it will be releasing its well-known Polo mints in branded individual wrappers.

The single mints are designed to be offered as complimentary treats, either after meals or as a welcome to guests.

They will be available in clear mint and fruit flavours.

Anu Christie-David, sweet food category manager at Nestlé, said: “Complimentary mints are the last thing a customer tastes before they leave an establishment.

“They are a big opportunity to create a positive lasting impression on peoples’ experiences and brands are a great way of reassuring consumers of taste and quality.”

Individually wrapped Polo sweets are available from the end of February and will retail in cases of 6 x 660g bags.

Uncle John's Hot Dogs

AAK Foodservice has announced the launch of its new Uncle John’s Hot Dogs.

The hot dogs, Bockwurst sausages smoked in a Beechwood smoker, are available in varying lengths from 14.5cm to 29cm and come in four pack sizes, 10 x 50g, 7 x 72g, 7 x 90g and 9 x 140g.

Rachel Neale, foodservice marketing manager at AAK Foodservice, said: “Hot dogs have nudged scampi and chips off the top 20 menu items and to help caterers tap into this, we’ve added Uncle John’s Signature Hot Dogs range to our portfolio.”

AAK Foodservice has created a promotional list of 10 nationality-themed hot dog serving suggestions, including “The Brit”: on a plate in a brioche with fried black pudding and bacon bits accompanied with beans, hash browns, brown sauce and ketchup and “The Big Texas BBQ”: on a slate with smoky bacon strips, chicken strips and barbeque sauce.
