Polly Waffle To Make Big Comeback In Australia Next Year

Polly Waffle To Make Big Comeback In Australia Next Year

Australians were devastated more than a decade ago when the beloved Polly Waffle chocolate was pulled from our shelves.

In 2009, the delicious treat vanished into thin air and we were left to finish off the decade with a Polly Waffle-sized hole in our chests.

But fear not, the marshmallow and water-filled sweet is making a come back.

South Australian confectioner Robern Menz purchased the Polly Waffle last year and they've announced plans to put it back into production. However, it's not a simple process to revive the dead.

Speaking to Channel 7, Robern Menz boss Phil Sims said: "Polly Waffle is a unique chocolate bar, and although it may sound simple enough - with its combination of chocolate, wafer and marshmallow - it actually requires a number of fairly complicated processes to create."

It seems like the right processes and practices have been set up and the Polly Waffle looks set to return next year.

Around 38 jobs will be created during the relaunch.

Robern Menz has been give a cool $1 million from the Manufacturing Modernisation Fund to allow production to be fast-tracked.

Industry, Science and Technology Minister Karen Andrews told Sunrise: "This is the government getting behind manufacturing.

"It's part of a broader program that we're rolling out - 200 projects, $215 million to drive manufacturing and create over 2,500 jobs."

Robern Menz is responsible for the likes of Fruchocs and Violet Crumbles, so you know the Polly Waffle will be good when it relaunches.

Not long now until 2021, right guys?
