Liquorice lovers will be able to get their fix in different ways thanks to a range of new products under the ­Panda brand.

Lemon and mint-filled bars as well as a Panda Mix, which contains an assortment of liquorice varieties, including chocolate and liquorice balls, are joining the range, with an rsp of 39p and £1.75 respectively. They will be supported by a £1m advertising campaign for the brand this year.

The liquorice, which is additive and preservative-free and contains less than 0.4% fat, is being positioned as a more healthy snack.
