The Snack Bites packs contain four bite-size cob sections, in packaging which has been developed with the aim of increasing shelf life.

Barfoots business manager James Meers said: "Sweetcorn sales traditionally slow in winter, but product development and pack formulations such as Snack Bites will help reverse that trend."

Snack Bites are priced at £1 and are available at Co-operative stores.

The launch follows on from the company's larger pack format Sweetcorn Bites, introduced last year. Meers said of these: "As with all new products the first year has focused on getting customers to buy into the brand and enjoy the experience. The data surrounding the bites clearly shows that once shoppers make the purchase, they enjoy the product."
