Mars Wrigley says Australians will the first in the world to get their mouths around the new Mars Bar: Salted Caramel with Honeycomb flavour.

Featuring honeycomb flavoured nougat in salted caramel, coated in milk chocolate, the new Mars Bar is the perfect balance of sweet and salty.

The flavour has been developed locally by Mars Wrigley’s R&D team and proudly made in Ballarat, the home of the company’s chocolate innovation.

Salted Caramel with Honeycomb flavour Mars Bar is available from 7-Eleven stores nationwide from the 27 July, before rolling out to all major supermarkets and retailers from mid-August.
