Throughout Second World War York Chocolate was the only chocolate Rowntree's continued to produce, it was produced as a plain chocolate with added vitamins to be sent to refugees in camps, or supplied for soldiers ration packs.
In 1966 York Chocolate was discontinued, then 10 years later in 1976 York Chocolate is re-launched under than brand name YORKIE, with its name due to it being manufactured at our factory in YORK where it still continues to be produced to this day.
Please be aware chocolate from the northern hemisphere (Ireland & UK) is creamier than Australian chocolate and therefore susceptible to Australia’s extreme weather conditions. We do everything we can to maintain the cool storage and packing. However the heat especially during transit can still effect the chocolate. We recommend put chocolate in the fridge upon receiving your order to ensure you enjoy the same great taste and texture. Thanks for your understanding.
