Bendicks brings out its new milk chocolate mint crisps this month. The milk chocolate and hand made honeycomb confectionery costs £1.59 per 150g pack. Marketing manager Neil McIntosh comments: "In line with Bendicks' commitment to support the boxed mint chocolate category, our £500,000 1997 spring TV campaign is to be followed by an exciting new £1.6m national TV campaign during the run up to Christmas, equating to an exceptional 21% advertising to sales ratio for the Bendicks brand. "We expect a new creative execution for Christmas 1997 to generate even greater brand awareness and stimulate increased sales during the key pre­Christmas gift giving period."{{FOCUS SPECIALS }}
