With winter well and truly on the horizon, we're not ashamed to say we're already starting to think about Christmas - which is just as well, because Mars Wrigley UK has just unveiled its festive range and it looks delicious.
Priced at £4.99 for a 212g box, the two new flavours follow the huge success of the Galaxy Truffles, which launched last year and will now be available in a large gift box format (rude not to, right?)
Announcing the news of its latest chocolate treat, Marks Wrigley UK said: "Set to be taking pride of place on everyone's holiday tables this year will be the newly launched Galaxy Caramel Truffles.
"Available market wide from early September, the treat's smooth caramel and velvety truffle centre is the perfect gift or addition to a Christmas party.
"While the elves set to work in the North Pole, the chocolate scientists at Mars Wrigley also have an extensive task ahead of them in the lead up to Christmas. Mars' leading chocolate scientists carried out extensive flavour testing trials to ascertain the perfect ratio of caramel to truffle.
"After sampling over 10 different caramels the delicious flavour pairing was found, with the chosen option hitting the sumptuous iconic Galaxy notes which Brits up and down the country know and love."
Speaking about the new orange flavour, they added: "The velvety citrus truffle centred treat is the ultimate gift."
This year will also see the return of the confectionary giant's bestselling selection boxes and advent calendars, including Malteaser and Galaxy Truffles.
Those with a sweet tooth can also tuck into Milky Way, Celebrations and Skittles selection boxes, as well as the brand new Galaxy Truffles advent calendar.
Speaking about the festive range Jo Sinisgalli, Gifting Senior Brand Manager at Mars Wrigley UK said of the treats: "Chocolate and confectionery plays an ever important role in providing little moments of joy and pleasure for people across the world - something that is not only needed during this uncertain time but a staple tradition during the holiday season.
"We know that Brits will still want to celebrate the holidays with family, friends and neighbours in a safe way through activities at home and virtual parties and know that these exciting treats will bring some Christmas magic and cheer to all!"
Happy snacking everyone!
