Tic Tac Gum – Ferrero 21/07/2021

I got news that Ferrero is going to discontinue its TicTac gum that was launched not so many years ago (see other posts in this blog).

The Italian company went into the gum segment by launching this interesting product and also by acquiring the gum base producer and supplier Eurobase, in Belgium.

They are probably redefining their strategy in this field as (I guess) the targets were not met. Actually I do not see the product in the shelves of the supermarkets, although we must also take into consideration that the pandemic has hit the whole gum market, so these are hard times for many the companies. The increase in cost of raw materials, the freight charges up in the sky, … all these are factors that do not help the business.

I will be very interested to see the new moves from Ferrero and from other companies, as for sure there will be some “re-positioning”.

More on this thread that has already a few posts. I read the news to day that the product will be launched in the US next year, 2018. This is a move that shows how serious the company is about this product. As far as I know it is available now only in the Italian market.

You have here the link to the article of www.confectionerynews.com that mention this expansion plan.

It seems that (finally) Ferrero has arrived to the chewing gum arena. I received photos of their product, which comes under their well-established brand “TIC TAC”. I guess the product is on sale at least in Italy. I do not know if in any other market as well. I have not seen TicTac Gum myself, so I cannot comment on the characteristics or the quality (I assume it is top class, like the rest of the products of the company – And no, they do not sponsor me!). I just wanted to share with you the picture of the product that I received:
