Nestlé Rowntree is hoping to grab itself a bigger chunk of bagged confectionery with new sharing bags of its most popular brands.

Aero Bubbles and Quality Street versions hit shelves this month priced at £1.49 per bag, with the confectionery giant also adding a Rowntree's Pick & Mix range to its treats line-up. Each bag will cost £1.19.

Two smaller Milkybar and Smarties bags, priced at 79p, will join ranks, while Polo Original and Sugar Free, in pouch-style bags, complete the range.

Nestlé has refuted rumours that it plans to scrap Lion chocolate bars due to poor sales.
