First, it was chunky chocolate blocks and now ice-cream. Darrell Lea is certainly making a massively delicious come-back and we’re so excited to try their new range of frozen treats.

The creators have mixed up some of our Darrell Lea signature favourites to create three different flavoured ice-creams, which are now available in tubs at a range of stores.

The ice-creams are certainly anything but boring and if you’re a fan of chunky, chewy, ooey, gooey ice-cream, you are going to adore Darrell Lea’s take on frozen confectionary.

The three flavours are:

Rocklea Road – marshmallows, peanuts, toasted coconut in chocolate ice cream.

Peanut Brittle – crunchy brittle, roasted peanuts, peanut butter swirl all smothered in vanilla ice cream.

Liquorice – Creamy vanilla ice-cream packed with Darrell Lea’s Batch 37 Liquorice with aniseed chips and an aniseed swirl.

Darrell Lea almost Went Under

It wasn’t long ago that the famous confectionery company (and one of Australia’s oldest) nearly disappeared forever.

However, new owners, Quadrant Private Equity, bought backs sweetness into our lives by injecting money and energy into resurrecting the brand.

The closed down the Darrell Lea stores and focused on getting the products into Australian supermarkets.

Darrell Lea chief executive Tim York said the overhaul of the business had seen its revenue surge from $37.4 million in 2013 to $81.2 million in 2017, as reported in the ABCNews.

Regarding the brand expanding into ice-cream, Mr York said:

“Darrell Lea did used to have ice cream at its stalls and in some recent market research ice cream was one of the products that people really wanted to see us put our inclusions, chocolate and peanut brittle and other pieces like that into.”

The new ice-cream range is now available at IGA stores.

We can’t wait to see what Darrell Lea has in store for us next!

  • Yum….i would love all of these.


  • Definitely the licorice I actually started to make my own with your licorice because I couldn’t buy it so thrilled now I can just buy it my second defo peanut brittle which I also used to make I think I can retire my ice cream machine now


  • I like licorice, but in ice cream? That sounds awful. Rocky road might be okay, though!


  • Divine and not helping my diet! But we all need treats. Licorice I love, but in ice cream? I’ll have to give it a whirl and decide….


  • Oh yum, the rocklea road and peanut brittle ones sound amazing! I might just have to go to an IGA and have a look. It would be great if they brought them to Woolies as well.


  • Darrell Lea, You are an absolute lifesaver!!!! My cravings for this deliciousness is about to be quenched as I am now aware that you are making Licorice Ice Cream!!!! Oh My !!! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you… :)


  • Yum! Some of these looks so good. I can’t wait to try them!


  • I can’t say that any of these strongly appeal.


  • Thank you Darrell Lea – I love licorice ice ceam!


  • I haven’t tried any but my choice would be Peanut Brittle – yummo!


  • GET IN MY BELLY! I have called a number of IGA and Foodworks supermarkets in my area trying to find some. No luck yet.


  • I loved this! the ice cream is a little bit grainy but its still a subtle but still great flavour. I’d imagine having a cheeky splash of plain chocolate ice magic would be pretty amazing too.


  • I’m a great lover of licorice however I don’t think I’d like it. Even though I love Daryl Lea chocolates its just too weird a combination for me.

    • I have tried licorice icecream from different places and love it. This is my dream come tru.e


  • I’m going to have to find an IGA store and get these so I can try them. Especially the licorice flavoured one.

    • I am going to visit IGA too and search for these yummy ice creams.


  • soooooo delicious cant wait to but some


  • YES yes and yes please I want them all they look delicious


  • I better find these to try, sounds like a good present for Father’s day.


  • I want then all! pity its IGA too far for me


  • Lovely flavoures. Want to try them all.


  • Sorry I just can’t imagine licorice and ice cream together – I do like both, but not sure about the together bit. The ice creams must be a reasonable price if IGA has them in their stores.
