What’s New:

  • SNICKERS® Hunger Bars: In June 2018, SNICKERS® is debuting three new flavors all at the same time, for a limited time as part of the Hunger Bars promotion. When you’re hungry, you lose your flavor—what makes you, you. Get your flavor back by trying a new SNICKERS® Espresso, Fiery, or Salty & Sweet. Each flavor has a hunger symptom on the outside of the packaging that relates to the flavor of the bar – Espresso: Irritable, Salty & Sweet: Indecisive, Fiery: Wimpy.
  • SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Crisper: Last December SNICKERS® introduced SNICKERS® Peanut Butter Crisper, a new offering that provides the perfect balance of sweet, salty, creamy & crispy. The satisfaction of real peanut butter with the crunch of crisp, it comes in four portionable squares that fans are sure to love.
  • 2018 SNICKERS® Hunger Handoff Program and In-Store Promotion: This NFL season, fans have the opportunity to get free SNICKERS® and free SKITTLES® after football games on Monday nights for the first 12 weeks of the season. Fans also have the chance to win a trip to Super Bowl LIII by uploading a photo of a receipt of any qualifying SNICKERS®, SKITTLES®, or M&M’S® products between August and November 2018.
    • Hunger Handoff
      • SNICKERS® Brand extends its popular “Who Are You When You’re Hungry?” campaign into the NFL season with the “Hunger Handoff” program. Leading into the week’s football games on Monday nights, a ‘Hunger Play’ that correlates to one of the football-themed SNICKERS® Bars is selected as that week’s challenge. If that play happens during the game, consumers get an opportunity to receive a free SNICKERS® Bar on Tuesday. Each week, the program will refresh with a new Hunger Play to watch for to win another SNICKERS® Bar. Plus, if a Trick Play occurs in any game on Monday nights, free SKITTLES® will be given away on Tuesday as well.
    • In-Store Promotion
      • From July 16th, 2018 through December 14th, 2018 Mars Wrigley Confectionery will promote new NFL packaging products including NFL SNICKERS® Football Shapes, M&M’S® Game Day Mix and SKITTLES® Trick Plays in-store.
