Nestlé Ireland launches Christmas 2022 confectionery range

Nestlé Ireland announces a Christmas 2022 range full of festive favourites and exciting NEW launches from its iconic brands.

Synonymous with Christmas, Quality Street has some exciting new product launches. The Quality Street pouch bag will be joined by two new Quality Street Favourites bags: The Purple One – the nation’s favourite Quality Street sweet - and Strawberry Delight. Shoppers will also get the chance to try their favourite sweets reimagined with two new Quality Street blocks inspired by The Purple One and Orange Crunch.

In addition, Quality Street Matchmakers is back with a new Matchmakers Honeycomb variety, the delicious honeycomb chocolate sticks are full of crunchy pieces in a blend of milk and dark chocolate. The new flavour joins mint and orange to complete the Matchmakers Christmas range.


Earlier this year, Nestlé announced an industry-leading packaging innovation for Quality Street. In a category first, Quality Street will move to recyclable paper packaging for its twist-wrapped sweets. By replacing the double layer of foil and cellulose with a paper wrap, Quality Street will remove more than two billion pieces of packaging material from the brand's supply chain.


The transition to paper, which is now underway, will take several months to complete. This means that for Christmas 2022, consumers will find a mix of both the old and new wrappers in their Quality Street cartons, pouches, tubs, and tins. The delicious mix of sweets inside is unchanged.

This year, After Eight celebrates its 60th birthday, which it will honour with an eye-catching special edition design for its 300g box. Also new is the After Eight Mint Collection box. This indulgent collection contains five delicious flavours: Dark Peppermint Truffle, Dark Peppermint Cream, Dark Peppermint Crisp, Dark Orange and Peppermint Cream, and Milk Peppermint Truffle.

There is something for everyone in the Giant Tubes range including family favourites Smarties, Rowntree's, Milkybar, Rolo and more, plus this year there will be two brand new launches. The new Aero Peppermint Bubbles giant tube is certain to be a popular addition to the range. It will be joined by the Smarties White giant tube.

Finally, two brand new selection boxes will launch this Christmas. A special Aero Selection includes the popular Milk Chocolate, Peppermint, Orange and Snowy White chocolate blocks all wrapped up in a festive, gift-worthy design. Whilst the new Smarties and Milkybar Selection comes filled with family favourites from the brands and features a fun family game on the back of the pack.
