White Knight (chocolate)
|This article needs additional citations for verification. (December 2007)|
A White Knight is a chocolate-coated, chewy, mint-flavoured confectionery bar sold in Australia. It is manufactured by Nestlé Australia. The packaging is blue and white and features a picture of a knight on a horse. Its slogan is 'Mighty Mint Chew'.
The 25 gram bar is composed of a white, mint flavoured chewy center coated in compound chocolate.
It the 1980s the bar used to lie on top of a piece of cardboard within the wrapper. On the reverse of the card was a picture of a fictional knight which could be bent at the base to stand up. Children would aim to trade and collect the set of these knights. This part of the packaging was discontinued years later, presumably as a cost-cutting measure.
It is sold in major Australian supermarkets, such as Woolworths and Coles, as well as some discount department stores (e.g. Kmart) and milk bars/convenience stores. The bar was sold at a cheaper price point reflecting its smaller size (e.g. 75c in 2008) but it is now priced similar to the larger (50-60g) sized chocolate bars e.g. 90c (Coles/Woolworths/Kmart) as of February 2010.
