The range includes the Waitrose 1: Classic Edition range of chocolates produced in Switzerland, using high quality fillings including aromatic bitter orange, Turkish hazelnut and Madagascan vanilla.
Elsewhere, the Waitrose Sweet Treats collection includes an array of decorated hearts and dessert cups, featuring flavours such as maple pecan pie and crème brûlée. Other SKUs being launched include Waitrose Cherry Liqueurs, Belgian Flaked Truffles and Chocolate Ginger bitesize pieces.
Notably, the launch also includes two new vegan chocolate SKUs, including Waitrose Coconut Ice, and Waitrose Turkish delight, which is made in Turkey according to a traditional recipe.
