Adelaide-based chocolatier Robern Menz is bringing Violet Crumble Nuggets in stores around the country, transforming the gluten-free honeycomb, milk chocolate bar into bit sized pieces.

Violet Crumble returned to Australia in 2018 after Robern Menz purchased the brand from Nestle, and has since expanded into distribution into the US.

“It’s been a real pleasure to bring Violet Crumble back to Australia and see how loved it is as a national icon,” said Robern Menz CEO Phil Sims.

“We love introducing new formats of products, to appeal to consumers for different occasions and reasons. It’s exciting to be in a position to offer chocolate-fans different ways to enjoy Violet Crumble and we look forward to seeing how Nuggets is received.”

Violet Crumble Nuggets will be available in 135g bags and will be sold through independent grocery and convenience channels, as well as Caltex, nationally for RRP $4.99.
