Cadbury Flake is a bar of thinly folded milk chocolate produced in Britain, New Zealand, Australia, Ireland and South Africa by Cadbury.
The product was first developed in 1920 and was founded by an employee of Cadburys. When the excess from the moulds was drained off, it fell off in a stream and created folded chocolate with flaking properties.
Since 1922 in Britain and Ireland ice cream vendors serve ’99s’ which are vanilla soft serve ice cream in a wafer cone in which a half size Flake bar is inserted in the top. Screwballs are similar but have a plastic cone rather than a wafer.
Flake is available in the United States at specialty retailers, including Central Market.
