Nestle announces new names for Red Skins and Chicos
After announcing plans to ditch the names of Red Skins and Chicos due to racist connotations earlier this year, Nestle has announced the new names for lollies going forward.
Red Skins will now be called Red Rippers and Chicos will be known as Cheekies.
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.
“We will keep pack changes simple to help lolly lovers find their favourites easily.”
Red Ripper and Cheekies will appear on shelves in early 2021.
