Cherry Ripes Have Been Turned Into Ice Creams Again
The humble Cherry Ripe is one of the oldest chocolate bars in Australia.
The perfect combination of dark chocolate, cherries and coconut is legendary with some Aussies (there are others who think the snack is a foul combination of atrocious flavours, but we don't have time for that today).
But if you're a fan of the cheeky Cherry Ripe then you'll be bloody pleased to know that it has been turned into an ice cream. Whoever has been spamming Cadbury's DMs calling for these to be brought back has clearly had their message read loud and clear.
They've been introduced to Woolworths and Coles around the country and a pack of four will set you back $8.50.
While the temperatures might be dropping across Australia and the appetite for ice cream might not be at fever pitch, it's still encouraging to know that these bad boys exist somewhere.
It might shock you to know that Cherry Ripe has been declared Australia's favourite chocolate bar.

Based off data from Roy Morgan in 2013, the choccy bar managed to command the market sales across the country. The Cherry Ripe reigned supreme but was closely followed by Cadbury Dairy Milk 50g blocks and Mars Bars for the top spot.
Roy Morgan's Industry Communications Director Norman Morris said the confectionary industry in Australia is very competitive.
"Over the last five years there has been a small decrease in the proportion of Australians consuming chocolate bars in any given four-week period. During this time, Cherry Ripe and Cadbury Dairy Milk 50g bars gained popularity while Mars and Kit Kat declined," said Morris.
"It's interesting to note how taste varies by age, with those aged over 35 showing a clear preference for Cherry Ripe, and those under 35 more likely to consume other chocolate bar brands.
"It is vital for chocolate bar manufacturers to understand the detailed profiles of their customers and how they differ from those of other brands to ensure they remain competitive."
