Guylian is to launch a new low-carb milk chocolate bar in the wake of Nestlé’s introduction of low-carb versions of Kit Kat and Rolo.

Launched next month, the Guylian Low Carb bar will be trialled in Woolworths stores until January.

The bar, already a hit in the US, has 2g net carbohydrates per 28g serving and will retail at £1.49 for 85g.
