Margaret Stuart, Nestlé Oceania’s head of corporate affairs, said the classic chocolate beetles are “ far more successful in a show bag than ever in the store. ”

‘Bertie has always been such a striking showbag. When people buy Bertie, they not only buy the chocolate honeycomb, it is also a very iconic part of an agricultural show, ”she told news.com.au.

Emily Williams, Chicane’s marketing director, said the famous beetles performed incredibly well at shows because of generations of nostalgia.

‘It has such a long history and it is synonymous with the royal shows,’ she said.

‘For humans it is memory. When they think of royal show, they think of Bertie Beetle because they grew up with it, and they pass that on to their kids and their kids. ‘
