Eleven years after leaving our shelves, Polly Waffles are coming back to boost the Australian economy!
Things have been tough recently, but a nice and unexpected bright light at the end of this Coronavirus tunnel is the return of a once-lost favorite snack.
The famous Australian wafer tube, filled with a fluffy marshmallow log, is returning from the dead.
That’s right. Soon, you will be able to relive your childhood and chow down on a Polly Waffle
The Australian government is putting forward close to $50 million towards manufacturing job creation in the post-pandemic economic climate.
One beneficiary of that money is South Australia-based chocolate and biscuit manufacturing business, Robern Menz, who will receive $1million to create a Polly Waffle production line.
This will then hopefully create 38 new jobs and will allow the chocolate to return to shelves by early 2021.

This was goes out to my nostalgic Australian friends – from 1994, a wrapper for Nestle’s fancifully-named “Polly Waffle” bar! Described as a “choc-coated marshmallow-filled wafer”, it sounds pretty great to me! Anyone remember this one? #candy #collectingcandy #pollywaffle #vintagecandy #vintagepackaging #90s #1990s #90snostalgia @nestlechocolates
There had been a lot of support for the chocolate’s return on social media during its hiatus.
The Facebook group Bring Back The Polly Waffle has over 50,000 likes.
“Finally some good news, ‘ wrote one diehard fan.
Another commenter said: “Wish it was sooner, but great it is creating jobs in SA.”
