Nestle today confirmed Red Ripper and Cheekies as the new names of its Allens Red Skins and Chicos lollies.
The announcement follows Nestle’s decision to change the names due to overtones which are out of step with the company’s values.
Nestle General Manager Confectionery, Chris O’Donnell said:
“Nestle has an unwavering commitment to upholding respect for our friends, neighbours and colleagues”.
“We hope Australians will support the evolution of these two much loved lollies – while the names are new, the lollies themselves remain unchanged.
