1960’s commercial for Frys Crunchie!
Cadbury Crunchie is a milk chocolate bar with a “honeycombed” sugar centre. It is made by Cadbury UK and was originally launched by J. S. Fry & Sons in 1929. Fry had merged with Cadbury in 1919 and Crunchie later became a Cadbury brand.
Cadbury Crunchie is sold in several sizes, ranging from “snack size” – a small square piece – through to “king size”. The most common portion is a single-serve bar, about 1 inch wide by about 7 inches long, and about 3/4 of an inch deep.
In the early 2000s there were a range of limited edition Crunchies on sale in the UK. These included a lemonade bar, a champagne bar and a Tango Orange bar, in which the chocolate contained the different flavourings. The champagne-flavoured bar was initially launched for New Year’s Eve 1999.
As is common with other chocolate brands, Crunchie brand ice cream bars and cheesecake are also sold in some countries. Such products contain nuggets of the bar within the ice cream or cheesecake.
In 2006 a “Crunchie Blast” variety of the product was launched, which featured “popping candy” inside the bar, however it was shortly discontinued.
