The Return of Nestle Violet Crumble
That is because it was pulled from the shelves by Nestle. On account of them not being able to consistently produce the bar to a standard 50 gram weight.
Thankfully that issue seems to have been put to bed. As the product now complies with Federal Government regulations on net weight it is therefore available to buy again.
About Nestle Violet Crumble
Made in Campbellfield near Melbourne, Nestle Violet Crumble is a delicious slab of golden honeycomb covered in milk chocolate. It is made with UTZ certified sustainable cocoa.
One of Australia’s very first chocolate bars it is promoted under the strapline ‘Its the way it shatters that matters’.
Invented in 1913 by Abel Hoadley of Hoadley’s Chocolates, the product was intended to be called just ‘Crumble’. But this was not possible as that name was already trademarked.
Drawing inspiration from his wife’s favourite flavour (violet) and colour (purple) he registered the name Violet Crumble and duly designed purple packaging with a flower on it in her honour. The product very quickly became a runaway success.
Often compared to the Cadbury Crunchie, this popular chocolate bar is seen as confectionery royalty in Australia.
Somewhat crispier in texture, it is also commonly sold in Hawaii. As well as in Hong Kong, the UK, New Zealand and the USA.
In Australian culture Violet Crumble has often been a point of reference. For instance, Bertie Beetles, are often sold at royal shows around Australia. They were actually invented to use up broken pieces of Violet Crumble.
While in the novella Pobby and Dingan by Ben Rice, Kellyanne’s two imaginary friends ate nothing but Violet Crumbles, Cherry Ripes and lollies.
More recently the Sydney Kings, whose primary colours are purple and yellow, have regularly been labelled the ‘Violet Crumbles’. Especially after heavy defeats in Australia’s NBL.
The process of making Nestle Violet Crumble has a series of stages.
Firstly the honeycomb is produced and sent into an air-conditioned area, where it is cut into bars. It then goes through machines that chocolate coat it.
These machines actually double coat the honeycomb to seal it from the air.
Once this has been done the bars go through a network of cooling tunnels. These then take them on to the process of automatic wrapping in moisture resistant packaging.
