Rolo Cookies – Skippy (1999)

The Rolo product was developed in England by Mackintosh’s,(later Rowntree-Mackintosh), simply a combination of caramel and a chocolate coating. Rolo was launched in the United Kingdom in 1937.

In 1956, the New England Confectionery Company acquired a licence to produce Rolos in the US.In 1969, the licence for US Manufacturing was acquired by The Hershey Company.

In 1988, the Nestlé company acquired Rowntree and its brands, including Rolo. There have now been Rolo biscuits, ice-cream, muffins, birthday cake, desserts, cake bars, doughnuts, mini Rolos, big Rolos (all of which use the same type of caramel), yoghurts, and Easter eggs made. In May 2011, McDonald’s combined chocolate pieces and caramel sauce with their soft-serve McFlurry product to simulate the Rolo flavour profile in a cross-branded product. In December 2018, Walmart began selling Rolo ice cream cones and ice cream sandwiches in their stores.

In the UK Rolos are produced at Nestlé’s Fawdon factory in Newcastle upon Tyne.
