Ritmeester Cigars offer

Royal Dutch Single Panatellas were launched in a single-stick variant in January 2015 by Ritmeester Cigars.

Now available in a single-stick format, Royal Dutch Single Panatellas are said to offer a “fantastic alternative” and they provide consumers the opportunity to enjoy the quality of the cigar for only £1.

Packed in a convenience-friendly outer of 20, the Royal Dutch Single Panatellas give the consumer a “quality smoke for a one-coin purchase of £1”, as well as giving retailers a minimum of 22% POR (profit on return). At a wholesale selling price of only £12.99, the single sticks are not tying up a retailer’s cash flow on-shelf.

The first 20 names drawn will win an outer of Royal Dutch Single Panatellas.

Classic Roast promises a “richer and fuller taste”, appealing to the mass market for a morning boost or a cup of coffee at any other time of the day.

At a retail price of £2.69, the price-marked pack stands out on-shelf and is said to offer “great value for money compared to the competition”.

The first five names drawn will each win five cases of Douwe Egberts Classic Roast 95g PMP stock.

Adding a healthier option to the snacking aisles, these snacks are said to deliver a balance between “better-for-you and great-taste products”.

Suitable for vegetarians and vegans, as well as being nut- and dairy-free, these snacks are also high in fibre and a source of protein, keeping people fuller for longer.

Celebrating the launch of these new nibbles, Calbee UK is offering five readers the chance to win a case of each of the four flavours. Each case contains 24x21g packs.

The first five names drawn win a supply of Yushoi Snapea rice sticks.

To help you “catch them quick”, Maoam is giving seven readers of Independent Retail News the chance of winning two cases each of Pinballs featuring Rhuberry flavour. Each case contains 12x160g bags.
