Chocolate fish facts for kids
|Place of origin||New Zealand|
|Main ingredients||Pink or white marshmallow, milk chocolate|
Chocolate fish have a conventional fish-shape and a length of 5 to 8 centimetres (2.0 to 3.1 in). They are made of pink or white marshmallow covered in a thin layer of milk chocolate with the ripples or (scales) on the fish created simply by the fish moving under a blower; this slides the unset chocolate back, creating the illusion of scales on the fish. Several manufacturers make the fish, but the most well-recognised is Cadbury. Smaller, or "fun-sized" variants of the chocolate fish are colloquially referred to as "sprats".
For a short period, in the late 1990s - early 2000, there was a Tip Top brand chocolate fish ice-cream. In 2019, the chocolate fish was added to the Cadbury Favourites box.
