Aussie favourites Gaytime, Vovo, Lamingtons and more, reimagined by Koko.
Artisan chocolatier, Koko Black, has released its latest chocolate range – the Australian Classics Collection, a new product range that celebrates beloved Australiana classics with an exciting Koko twist. While the world navigates uncharted territory, Koko Black’s newest range serves as an optimistic reminder to Australians of the good times past, as well as the good times still ahead.
Taking cues from Australia’s nostalgic golden days, Koko Black has taken much-loved, classic flavours, ingredients and emotions, reimagining them in their own unique contemporary way and creating new moments of joy in the process.
The Koko Black Australian Classic Collection includes:
Gaytime Goldies – Single Bar, $6.00 / 3 Pack, $17.90
Mostly sweet but slightly salty; mostly milky, sometimes malty. An oldie and a goldie, to remind Australians of sunny afternoons and ice-creams that melted far too quickly. Vanilla and malted caramel ganache, dipped in dark chocolate and sprinkled with hazelnuts.
Koko Vovo – Single Bar, $6.00 / 3 Pack, $17.90
A trip down memory lane to the biscuit jar at Grandma’s house. All the flavours of sweet afternoons, and everything nice dunked in tea! Milk chocolate coated biscuit topped with strawberry rosewater marshmallow, raspberry jelly and coconut.
Jam Wagons – Single Bar, $6.00 / 3 Pack, $17.90
An iconic sandwich of marshmallow, chocolate, jam and biscuit. Tastes like tuckshop treats and wheelies outside the milk bar. Crumbly biscuit batons topped with marshmallow and raspberry jam coated in milk chocolate.
Honey Joys (Milk and 54% Dark Chocolate) – $15.90 per packet
A party-time favourite returns to capture the golden memories of crispy cornflakes and patty pans. Crunchy cornflakes and sticky honey, mixed in creamy milk chocolate or decadent dark chocolate.
Koko Crackles – In Between 130g, $15.90 / Slab 220g, $24.90
Forever young, but a little bit grown up, Koko Black’s Koko Crackles will remind Australians of the first time in the kitchen full of sugar-highs. Crispy rice bubbles with caramelised coconut and white chocolate, dipped in dark chocolate.
Lamington Slice – In Between 150g, $15.90 / Slab 220g, $24.90
Koko’s own take on a classic little cake. Fluffy, sweet morsels to recreate memories of roadside bakeries, school fetes and happy days. Dreamy chocolate marshmallow and raspberry jelly dipped in dark chocolate and dusted with coconut.
An ‘Ultimate Classic Collection Hamper’ featuring all products in the Australian Classics range will also be available to purchase online for $169.
Remco Brigou, Head Chocolatier and Product Innovation Manager at Koko Black said, “Every single person has memories they can look back to as the ‘good old days’ – where milk bars were on every corner, and where summers were filled with memories of birthday parties, fetes and trips to the tuckshop. We want our Australian Classics Collection to reinvent these moments in a contemporary way, making people feel those fond Australian memories are here. That the golden days are now, and that you’re never too old to feel young again.”
The Koko Black limited-edition Australian Classic Collection will be available to purchase online from September 10 and in-store at all Koko Black locations on September 24 for a short time only.
