“The Classic range is especially adored by many Australians and we’re delighted to be able to provide them with an updated version that delivers the familiar flavours and creamy texture they enjoy, with no sugar added,” said Wallace.

Both flavours are now available at Coles, as well as selected convenience and petrol stores throughout NSW, QLD, VIC and SA.
Allen’s is bringing back its much-loved Spearmint Leaves lollies to stores around the country, following the releases of its Black Cats and Mini Chocolate Bananas earlier in the year.
The gummy lolly is shaped like a leaf and flavoured with spearmint. Allen’s said the launch was made possible “thanks to calls from avid fans” asking to bring the minty lollies back on shelf.
“The team at Allen’s is excited to bring back this minty-fresh lolly which was first made in the 1960s,” said Nestlé head of marketing Joyce Tan.
“The sweet treat was a fan favourite at our pop-up store a few years ago, so we wanted to continue making Aussies smile by bringing Spearmint Leaves back on to shelves.”
Allen’s Spearmint Leaves are now available in Coles for RRP $2.95.
