Wellington Chocolate Factory have 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. We have based our newly inspired ANZAC flavoured chocolate commemorative bar on the core ingredients of the D ration bar. Artwork has been beautifully completed by Auckland based artist, Misery.
