Arnott’s has been busy working its magic, reimagining some of Australia’s favourite classic biscuits to inspire a completely new format – chocolate blocks and bars! Arnott’s Chocolate will be available in five of their classic biscuit inspired flavours; Iced VoVo, Scotch Finger, Wagon Wheel, Ginger Nut and Jatz.
With over 150 years of biscuit baking expertise, and more than fifty years of chocolate knowledge, Arnott’s has developed a smooth and creamy chocolate, and blended it with real biscuit pieces to create a totally new chocolate experience. Inspired by the delicious tastes and textures of iconic Arnott’s biscuits, Arnott’s Chocolate is a perfectly indulgent chocolate treat.
Pauline Mercier, Arnott’s Marketing Manager said, “There’s no denying Aussies’ love of Arnott’s biscuits, or their love of chocolate. We wanted to combine the two and give people the best of both worlds and a new way to enjoy Arnott’s!
“We’ve selected a range of flavours that we know Aussies are sure to love – whether it’s the delicious buttery crunch of Scotch Finger, the undeniable Wagon Wheel combination of biscuit, raspberry and marshmallow, the ever-humble coconut and raspberry from Iced VoVo, or the sweet and salty with Jatz, there’s something for everyone. We are sure there will be plenty of debate about favourite flavours – especially with those Ginger Nut lovers out there!”
Arnott’s senior communications manager Amy Wagner said the launch of the chocolate marked a special day for the brand.
“It is a brand that has been around for 150 years…and has been in the homes and hearts of Australians for decades,” she said.
“Arnotts is one of those brands that is synonymous with our culture and our life and certinaly it’s there for all occasions but one occasion it hasn’t been in, is the chocolate occasion.
“Which is why we’re so incredibly excited today to bring some of our most iconic and well loved flavours and biscuits into chocolate.
