A range of temporary tongue tattoos that have been a hit in the US and Europe are coming here.

Tung Toos sweet tongue tattoos will roll out to UK stores in January, distributed by Robel Confectionery.

The standard product allows kids to put images such as spiders and flowers on their tongues, but Tung Toos had also been popular as a medium for brands, said Robel. Brands including Disney Princess and Moshi Monsters had featured on them, while General Mills packed Tung Toos with yoghurts in the US.

Tung Toos has secured activity with Bazooka Candy Brands for the UK launch, and Robel is also seeking further deals with entertainment brands for the product.
