SAN ANTONIO -- CST Brands convenience stores will add Yowie Group’s Kinder Surprise-style chocolates to a group of test stores this summer, according to the candy manufacturer.

Yowie will initially roll out in 235 stores across Texas, Colorado and Southern California in August, marketed via a 48-count Yowie display unit located in the high-foot-traffic pathway leading to the cash register.

The company anticipates a successful launch would result in a national rollout encompassing the majority, if not all, of CST’s 1,100 convenience stores across the United States.

CST Brands operates about 1,900 c-stores in eights U.S. states and seven Canadian provinces.
