Ovalteenies are round sweets made of compressed Ovaltine. They are popular with children in Australia and the Philippines and are still sold in many canteens in schools.

The Ovalteenies themselves were changed to being oval in shape during the early 2000s, as it seemed more appropriate, fitting the name from which it derived: from the Latin ovum (or egg). However, popular demand[citation needed] later led to the sweets' production reverting to their original circular shape.
