KANSAS CITY — Companies are adding products to their portfolios before ringing in the new year.

AMC Theatres is expanding its retail presence with the introduction of its AMC-branded line of chocolate candies under the brand AMC Cinema Sweets. The new line of candies features four varieties: milk chocolate covered pretzels with a dark chocolate drizzle, milk chocolate covered almonds, milk chocolate covered raisins, and milk chocolate covered peanuts.

Over the past year, AMC has expanded its portfolio with several introductions, including AMC popcorn at Walmart locations and Hidden Valley ranch-flavored popcorn at movie theaters across the United States.

“We spent the last year in research and development ensuring that AMC Cinema Sweets, carrying the AMC name, are candies we are proud of, and just as important — really delicious snacks that our guests will enjoy and seek out when they come to the movies,” said Hank Green, vice president, food and beverage, AMC. “The launch of AMC Cinema Sweets — these four premium gourmet candies, with more on the way — are another way that AMC consistently makes movies better — and makes the movie-going experience even sweeter.”

On the foodservice side, Dunkin’ is adding its newest seasonal menu, which features the return of the pink velvet macchiato and the pancake wake-up wrap. The layered pink velvet macchiato features espresso and the flavors of red velvet cake and notes of cream cheese frosting. The new menu also includes a frosty red velvet donut and the pancake wake-up wrap, which is a pancake wrapped around bacon or sausage, egg and melted cheese. Making its debut as part of Dunkin’s seasonal menu is the new white hazelnut bark coffee, a drink that features the flavors of toasted hazelnut paired with white chocolate.

Williams Sonoma, a portfolio brand of Williams-Sonoma, Inc., is partnering with Netflix and Shondaland to launch a line of products inspired by the popular “Bridgerton” series. The Bridgerton collection includes over 20 products, including baking mixes; cakes, cookies, pastries, and petite fours; artisanal chocolates, candies, gelato, honey, and curds; and beverage mixes, available in several flavors.

“We are proud to partner with Netflix and Shondaland to develop products inspired by the sets, fashion and storylines that have made ‘Bridgerton’ a global phenomenon, and one of the most watched shows on Netflix,” said Felix Carbullido, president at Williams Sonoma. “Fans of ‘Bridgerton’ will appreciate the design details that are apparent throughout the collection.”

Williams Sonoma is not the only company looking to expand to “Bridgerton” fans. Danone North America’s International Delight brand released three limited-time offerings, including coffee and coffee creamer.
