Rowena Foods, manufacturers of that favourite of cinema-goers, the Choc Top, was bought by Bulla Dairy Foods. Rowena’s Choc Tops have been part of the cinema experience since 1990. The company supplies the two biggest cinema chains, Hoyts and Village.However, it appears many cinemas still make their own Choc Tops, using a variety of ice cream brands. The one thing they all seem to have in common is Nestlé’s compound chocolate, into which the ice cream in its cone is dipped.
Bulla is an Australian-owned company and said that none of the faithful Choc Top makers at Rowena would lose their jobs.
Choc Tops are called Choc Bombs in Western Australia and are made by hand in many cinemas where the quality of their Choc Bombs is a selling point in itself. Grand Cinemas proudly announce that: Grand Cinemas serves the perfect snacks and drinks to couple with your movie experience. From fresh popcorn to confectionary to our handmade creamy choc bombs, you are sure to find a snack that will excite your tastebuds!
