The Daim bar (Dajm in Scandinavia and Finland until 1990, and Dime in the UK and Ireland until 2005) is a crunchy almond butter bar covered in milk chocolate. The brand was purchased by Kraft Foods in 1993, however ownership is now held by Mondelēz International following Kraft's confectionery division name rebranding. Daim originated in Sweden and Norway in 1953, produced by Marabou and Freia respectively.
Daim was created after research into a similar product produced by the American company Heath. Marabou's vice president, Lars Anderfelt, asked to license the Heath product in the early 1950s. Heath refused, but gave a list of the ingredients to Anderfeldt. It was tested in Stockholm in 1952 with great success and launched nationally in Sweden and Norway 1953, in Finland in 1963 and Denmark in 1971.
In 2007, a 'Limited Edition Cappuccino' Daim bar was released. A limited edition forest fruit bar has also been released, as well as Gingerbread (Pepparkaka) Daim, Coke Daim, White chocolate Daim, Dark chocolate Daim, Blueberry Daim, Lemon-orange Daim and Mint Daim. Daim bars imported from Sweden (manufactured in Upplands Väsby) have been sold in IKEA stores in many countries.
