Aussie confectionery company Darrell Lea has unveiled two new flavours in its chocolate block range: White Chocolate Cookies & Cream and Dark Chocolate Rum & Raisin.

In classic Darrell Lea style, both chocolate blocks are packed full of chunky pieces. Fans can now enjoy either a sweet and creamy heavenly bite or explore a well-rounded venture to the dark side.

The White Chocolate Cookies & Cream block is made with Darrell Lea white chocolate wrapped around fluffy marshmallows and chocolate cookie pieces. It is anticipated to be another hot pick with consumers following the successful launch of its first white chocolate block, the White Chocolate Raspberry Bullet Block.

The Dark Chocolate Rum & Raisin block is made with Darrell Lea’s 47 percent cocoa dark chocolate with a smattering of juicy rum-infused raisins to strike just the right balance between bitter and sweet.

Darrell Lea general manager Marketing Johanna Campbell said the company loves creating new flavours for its customers.

“Rum & raisin and cookies & cream are two classic flavours that we know many simply can't say no to. Our block family is certainly growing and our goal is to continue helping generations of Aussies create memories and shareable experiences,” Campbell said.

The White Chocolate Cookies & Cream and Dark Chocolate Rum & Raisin 170g blocks are available nationwide from selected independent supermarkets, Woolworths and Coles for RRP $5.00.

All Darrell Lea products are guaranteed 100 percent palm oil-free and all chocolate is made using 100% sustainably sourced cocoa.
