Kinder’s Bueno Mini among winners of US Product of the Year awards
The 2022 Product of the Year USA Awards have announced this year’s winners, with confectionery and snacks brands being among those claiming accolades.
Among 40 categories, companies including Ferrero were recognised for its Kinder Bueno Mini within the candy segment, ALDI’s Clancy’s Pub Style Pretzels as Live Better Apple Cider Vinegar Gummies from CVS Health within the wellness space.
The awards were given based on a survey run by global consumer research company, Kantar, exploring 40,000 American shoppers views nationally.
In an ever-changing consumer landscape, the annual Product of the Year Awards can serve as a useful tool for consumers looking to find the best new products on the market, whether they’re shopping online or in-store. Winners can display a red seal which is recognised as a vote of confidence from consumers, to consumers.
“Given the continued flux and uncertainty over the past two years, we’re prouder than ever to provide consumers with the vote of 40,000 fellow shoppers as a guide they can trust when making important purchase decisions for themselves and their families,” said Mike Nolan, global CEO of Product of the Year Management.
“One of the great strengths of Product of the Year is that we champion manufacturers for putting forward products that reflect the latest trends and offer consumers the solutions they’re looking for.”
For over 30 years globally and 14 years in the USA, Product of the Year has given brands the opportunity to showcase quality and innovation. As an annual benchmark that forecasts the trends in store for the year ahead, this year’s winners reflect the things that everyday consumers value most—from personal care, health and wellness essentials to the latest food and beverage options and beyond.
