Australia's First Chocolate Bar - Cherry Ripe

Date of Record: 1924

The Cherry Ripe is as distinctive as it is unique. The ripe juicy cherries and moist coconut smothered in rich Old Gold dark chocolate ensures a unique taste experience.

Introduced in 1924 by MacRobertson's, a respected Australian confectionery manufacturer who for decades were the largest confectioner in Australia before Cadbury acquired them in 1967.

When Sir Macpherson Robertson launched the cherry ripe he may not have realised what kind of legacy he was creating with the chocolate bar, which up until 2002 still sported the MacRobertson's logo.
