Cherry Ripe is a brand of chocolate bar manufactured by Cadbury Australia. Introduced by the Australian confectioner MacRobertson's in 1924, it is now Australia's oldest chocolate bar and is one of the top chocolate bar brands sold in the country.[2] It consists of cherries and coconut coated with dark chocolate.

History[edit]

After Cadbury acquired Australian confectioner MacRobertson's in 1967 it continued to manufacture Cherry Ripe, along with Freddo, Old Gold and Snack.[3] Cherry Ripe wrappers continued to display the former company's distinctive logo until 2002.[3]
