Found it at Woolies today and tried it. Not bad but like Rocky Road, I think the Darrel Lea one is better once again.

They have just introduced a lot of their regular blocks and limited editions in this chunky bar size in Coles and Woolies: Peppermint, Coconut Rough, Popcorn etc.

Seemingly at the expense of Snack bars. :confounded:

Oh FFS - just give me cheap groceries Coles and Woolies. Shove your mini shops and Disney collectables up your collective arses.


you know you dont have to collect them?


I know. But they’ll shove them down our throats. I’d rather them actually improve their customer service instead of these shitty stunts.

So are they being shoved up or down? And where?

Where ever they like. Just not down my throat or up my arse.

Which other way is there!?

In the ear, noise, eye or peehole?

Who knew Yowies were so popular overseas and a huge money spinner sonce 2015?

$23.7m in 2018 and $25.3m in 2017. :open_mouth:

Woolies has started selling them again. The chocolate is made in the USA so I guess that’s where they’re from.
I bought one recently for nostalgia’s sake.

I’ve seen in them in the supermarkets for a while. Maybe two years. I didn’t realise they were made in the USA though. :open_mouth:

I always thought there was a big marketing opportunity that was wasted with these things. They should have made a cartoon for television using those Yowie characters. Could have been a chance for some big bucks in movies, toys and other merchandise.

Bit sad that this was a prominent story on the two top rated “news” bulletins in Brisbane tonight.

Even sadder that the piece from Seven (with Jessica Ridley being a Sydney-based reporter) most likely aired in all markets!

Didn’t see the Nine piece in Sydney though, which makes me wonder if it was another “brilliant” local content decision for QTQ made by Amanda Patterson and/or her advisories…


Probably paid for just like the Murdoch front pages today…


Carlton and United Breweries, which makes Victoria Bitter, Carlton Draught, Foster’s etc. has a third foreign owner, after Anheuser-Busch InBev sold the company to Japan’s Asahi Breweries. CUB initially sold itself to SAB Miller in 2011, before the latter was acquired by AB InBev with 2016. Asahi currently owns Schweppes Australia as well as European alchohol brands Peroni, Grolsch and Pilsner Urquell.
