Proudly Still in Australian Hands
Darrell Lea has been making Australia's finest chocolates, freshest liquorice and most delectable confectionery since 1927.
Our most famous invention is soft-eating liquorice that we invented in a small factory under the iconic arches of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
We're immensely proud that we're still 100% Australian-owned and 100% Australian-loved.
Loved by Aussie Mums and Dads and Nanas and Grandpas and lots of little kids all across the country.
Nothing to wine about
One of Darrell Lea's great Aunts lived on a vineyard in the Hunter Valley. She loved to complain about everything earning her the nickname 'The Winer'. Darrell would always test new flavour ideas on her as she would surely tell him if he got it wrong. Whilst visiting her one day Darrell was inspired by the beautiful purple grapes that would shine like jewels in the Hunter sun. When Darrell offered his Aunt a taste of his latest Grape Twists she ate the whole batch without a single word and simply smiled.
