Introducing NEW Limited Edition Müller Rice Smooth Chocolate and Caramel Flavour

Press release   •   Jan 10, 2014 11:24 GMT

Müller Rice is adding to its scrumptious range with a new Smooth Chocolate and Caramel flavour pot of dairy rice.

The mouth-watering confectionery edition has been tried and tested by grizzly rapping bear Tasty B, made famous by the new Müller Rice adverts which premiered on TV last year – “Rice Rice Baby!” He particularly recommends this for those consumers with a stomach growling from hunger.

This new limited edition Smooth Chocolate and Caramel features as Tasty B's new “single” and will excite consumers both in delicious taste and a look that jumps out from the shelf.  … Mmm, tasty!

It seems Tasty B knows his stuff too, as since the range re-launch in June, sales of Müller Rice have increased by 10%![1] The brand now sells over £46m and almost 100m pots making it the 2nd biggest dessert brand in the category.

Müller Dairy’s Marketing and R&D director Michael Inpong says:

“We have turned our beloved Rice range round through investment in product quality, new packaging and flavour innovation, and we have seen some excellent signs of positive sales momentum.

“Our recent launches over the past year in the luxurious yogurt and chilled dessert sectors have encouraged consumers to enjoy what they eat, and we continue to push this message with the launch of the limited edition Smooth Chocolate and Caramel confectionary flavour Müller Rice.”

The limited edition flavour will be available to retailers from January in single pots (RRP of £0.69) and in packs of four and six.
