Fantales Allen's - Australia's most iconic lolly!


These chocolate-covered caramels get their name from the celebrity on their wrappers – quite literally fan tales. They were first created in the 1930s to cash in on movie-star mania not long after the `talkies’ came to Australia. Today the candy is owned by Nestle and its team of trivia writers digs up factoids on celebrities from Australia and around the world. Here’s a snippet from a wrapper: `Born in New South Wales in 1939, he held a job as a painter working on the Sydney Harbour Bridge before rising to fame in the early 1970s after he did a c comical interview on `A Current Affair’. He later became a worldwide success with his performance in `Crocodile Dundee’ (1986), which he co-wrote. Answer: Paul Hogan.’

For decades, going to the movies involved either a pack of Jaffas or a box of Fantales. The chocolate-covered caramels were introduced by Sweetacres in 1930. On their wrappers were, literally, fan tales – brief biographies of movie stars.  The tradition continues, with the stories updated every two years.
