McVitie’s announces Jaffa Cakes Lemon & Lime Flavour is back by popular demand 


Some-zing is coming…today McVitie’s UK&I announces the return of Lemon & Lime Flavour to the McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes range.  

Originally launched as a limited-edition flavour in 2018, the zesty lemon and lime star of the show is back by popular demand – bringing some life to the party this New Year! 

A snack time treat with a twist, McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes features the iconic crackly dark  chocolate, springy sponge layers of the original McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes with an unashamedly tangy and undeniably tasty citrus flavoured centre. It’s the perfect way to bring some pizazz to your day.   

Fans have been calling for the return of Jaffa Cakes Lemon & Lime Flavour since their original run ended, and McVitie’s couldn’t help but oblige! 

One snacker commented; “Justice for Lemon & Lime Jaffa Cakes! I need them back in my life ASAP”  

Another pleaded; “Sometimes the only ones that made you sad, are the only ones that can make things right again… @jaffacakes you know what you need to do. Please bring back the Lemon & Lime flavour” 

After listening to the cries of ‘Jaffanatics’ rumbling tummies, McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes Lemon & Lime Flavour will be available in supermarkets from 3rd January 2022. 

Sarah Babb, marketing manager for McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes at pladis UK&I, said: “McVitie’s Jaffa Cakes Lemon & Lime Flavour was a hit when first launched as a limited-edition flavour in 2018. Since then, we’ve been inundated with requests from Jaffanatics to bring back this much-loved flavour. So we’re really excited to announce the return of Lemon & Lime Flavour and to offer yet another unique flavour for all to enjoy. It’s the perfect way to brighten up your day!.”
