The Australian alternative to the Kinder Surprise, Yowies are coming home after a decade off the shelves.
The once-popular chocolate treat was discontinued in Australia ten years ago, only to be introduced in the US in 2014 – to great success.
And according to Today Tonight, Americans have taken a great liking to the Sasquatch-like creature, derived from Aboriginal mythology and said to have lived in the Australian wilderness.
At its height during the 2000s, over one million of the chocolates – each containing a collectible figurine – were being sold each week in Australia.
And after its relaunch in the US, 110,000 Yowies are now being produced each day in a New York factory.
Business owner Wayne Loxton said he often received messages from Australians wanting to get their hands on the confectionary icon.
“I get a lot of enquires, why can Americans buy Yowies and we can’t in Australia?” Mr Loxton told Today Tonight, before revealing the treats would be available for hungry Australians “shortly”.
