31 May 2019: pladis, the global snacking company behind some of the UK’s most loved snacks, has launched a new limited edition treat to its cake portfolio, McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes Pineapple Cake Bars.

The new cake treat is available now in Tesco and Asda stores at an MRSP of £1.00 and will be rolling out across all major grocery and convenience channels later this month. The pack includes five individually wrapped bars, perfect for adult lunchboxes or for on the go. Each bar contains 97 calories, in line with Public Health England’s new 100-calorie snacking guidelines[1].

All packaging is recyclable via pladis’ partnership with Terracycle (

David Carey, Senior Brand Manager for McVitie’s Cake at pladis UK&I said:

“We’re  thrilled to launch our limited edition McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes Pineapple Cake Bars, offering consumers a new taste adventure for a product they already know and love. Our McVitie’s Jaffa Cake Bars range has become one of the fastest growing products in the Cake category over the last few years, helping to make McVitie’s the number one brand in Cake Bars, and Jaffa Cake Bars the nation’s favourite cake bar. We’re excited to build on this momentum with a new zesty, potentially controversial, flavour which we’re sure will spark   debate with consumers around one of the country’s most loved brands.”
