Rainbow-finished Meringue Drops will be a new addition to Flower & White’s award-winning Merangz range, and will be available in May.

The company said: “These are dinky little drops of handmade, Swiss-baked meringues in a kaleidoscope of colours – for snacking, desserts and gifting.”

Made with British free-range eggs and all-natural flavour, the meringues are low in fat, suitable for vegetarians, and naturally gluten-free. Two of the varieties - Rainbow Fruit and Chocolate - are also dairy-free.

Meringue Drops will launch exclusively online in May, and then nationwide in June. Available in 100g bespoke boxes, there are three varieties:

•          Rainbow Fruit - a mixed box of Strawberry, Lemon, Passion Fruit and Black Cherry – fat-free and dairy-free

•          Chocolate – fat-free and dairy-free

•          White Chocolate & Raspberry – low-fat

Leanne Crowther, co-founder of Flower & White, said: “This is an exciting and innovative new addition to our Merangz collection, and caters for a whole new sector.”
