Gossip: Cadbury Cherry Ripe 90-Year Anniversary

Cadbury's famous Cherry Ripe bar celebrates its 90-year anniversary in 2014, and to celebrate Cadbury are putting out two limited editions of the coconut cherry bar.

There will be a new 'Cherry Ripe Ganache' in the medium bar range:

The bar is described as a Cherry Ripe bar 'enhanced by a layer of dark chocolate ganache'. Yum! It may come in a pink wrapper or a red wrapper as pictured above. Which do you like more?

And Twitter user @nevereverKatie has identified the second release; a large block of Old Gold dark chocolate with pieces of Cherry Ripe filling scattered throughout.

Will you be trying these when they land in your area? Isn't it amazing - what a milestone for one of Australia's favourites!

Mentos Grape

Last month, Stewart Alezander, the distributors of internationally-owned brand Mentos, released a Woolworths-exclusive limited-edition flavour of the sweet chewy lollies. While not new to the rest of the world, Grape, to my knowledge, hasn't had its own single-flavour roll in Australia before.

Gossip: New Starburst Packaging, New Skittles Packaging

Remember those new Starburst bags with the odd packaging I picked up earlier this year? It turns out that they were the first wave of new packaging to be introduced across the whole Starburst bagged range. These bags were spotted in IGA.

I also spotted new packaging for Skittles 45g bags - now they're handy boxes!

If you've seen new products or packaging while out and about, I'd love to hear about it! Email the blog, or post on my Facebook page, or tag me in a tweet (@LollyAddict)!

Nestle Wonka Nutty Crunchalicious

The final part of the Wonka story is in the Nutty Crunchalicious block. The set of four (including Chocolate Tales, Triple Chocolate Whipple and Caramel Hat Trick) were released in August last year, and appear to have been selling well in stores. The Australian-made blocks might be a competitor to Cadbury's Marvellous Creations, but they are still pretty interesting on their own, too.

Starburst Very Berry Chews

Unlike its travel buddy Snakes and Ladders and soon-to-be-reviewed Noughts and Crosses, Starburst's Very Berry Chews is very much American made. Although they have different packaging (who designed our bags, seriously!), the contents is much the same - a collection of berry-flavoured chews. Read on for the review!
