Firstly, Happy Valentine's Day.
We don't get too involved in it here, but I did buy Tony a couple of these....
just for the fun of it! ( hope he shares !)
I was visiting my friend Kate's blog and she was carrying on about a chocolate that was very special in Chicago called Frangos.
I thought as it was Valentine's Day, a day we associate with chocolate, that I might show you a couple of lollies ( you may call them sweets or perhaps candy but here they are lollies ) that I don't think are available anywhere except Australia.
The first one is my all time favourite.
It's called a Violet Crumble Bar.
and when you unwrap it this is what you get !
The bar is a crumbly honeycomb substance coated in chocolate.
No, it's not the same as a Crunchie Bar!
The honeycomb is harder and much more like home-made honeycomb.
The second one is called a Cherry Ripe.
It is manufactured byCadbury Australia Pty. Ltd and is Australia’s oldest chocolate bar brand, invented in 1924.
It is a mixture of cherries and coconut coated in lush dark chocolate,
Sorry, this is the only photo I can find to show you what they look like inside.
The bar with the stripes on it is the original and the one we all know.
The smooth one is a new version that is double dipped in dark chocolate - sounds OK to me !!!
So there you have it - two delicious chocolatey treats that are uniquely Australian
Make sure you try them if you are ever down this way.
