We've welcomed some new ‘Friendz’ to the family
Introducing the NEW Menz Friendz and Menz Mango JeliChocs!
The new Menz Friendz range is inspired by those childhood lollies we all know and love, and is available in the perfect party trio of snakes, bananas and milk bottles, and what’s more, they are gluten free and contain no artificial flavours or colours.
Earlier this year, we worked to ensure our factory no longer contained any trace of gluten in any product or machinery used within the factory so that all products produced, including the popular FruChocs range, Choc Honeycomb and Crown Mints, are all clearly marked as gluten-free.
We're excited to add Menz Friendz to our extensive range of more than 100 products after research identified a gap in the market for a reasonably priced, gluten free, locally made and owned lolly range perfect for kids’ parties and the occasional treat.
It’s a wonderful feeling to expand our product listing to include those childhood favourite lollies that have been passed down for generations, and have them in the form of our Friendz range. Being 100% gluten free and having no artificial flavours or colours gives Menz Friendz a key point of difference when compared to other similar products on the market.
The new Friendz range is available at Big W stores nationally, as well as IGA, Foodland, Drakes and Cheap as Chips in South Australia.
Menz Mango JeliChocs
Robern Menz has also expanded its beloved Menz JeliChocs range from Turkish Delight and Raspberry to the newly introduced Mango flavour, so you can now enjoy a delicious gluten free tropical jellied fruit smothered in chocolate.
