The Wellington Chocolate Factory has joined forces with The Great War Exhibition to recreate the historic World War Two chocolate bar.
Chocolate was originally introduced into the First World War as a morale energy booster for soldiers on a weekly basis. Chocolate bars were often sent as gifts from loved ones back home to help increase the hope and spirits of those fighting on the front line. During the Second World War, chocolate bars were introduced by the U.S government into soldiers ration packs as another form of staple food. The end product was known as the D ration bar, a blend of cocoa butter, skim milk, and oat flour. The Wellington Chocolate Factory has based their newly inspired ANZAC flavoured chocolate commemorative bar on the core ingredients of the D ration bar. This newly inspired Wellington Chocolate Factory bar is a much tastier improvement and is made locally in Wellington from fair trade ingredients.
This latest drop from The Wellington Chocolate Factory and The Great War Exhibition collaboration is definitely worth fighting for!
The bar is now available in selected stores including The Great War Exhibition retail and grocery store and on The Wellington Chocolate Factory website.
The Great War Exhibition is rated the second best activity to do in Wellington on TripAdvisorand earlier this year The Wellington Chocolate Factory was runner-up for their Salted Brittle Caramel Chocolate bar in the Cuisine Artisan Awards 2015.
