Otherwise the traditional cherry ripe bar comes in 52grams, 80grams, 18grams special treat pieces; as well as a whopping 216grams.

Many ice cream and gelato shops in Sydney sell Cherry Ripe flavoured ice cream that seems to be quite popular. People have experimented with many different Cherry Ripe recipes. Such popular recipe ideas that come up on a Google search include Cherry Ripe Balls, and even a Cherry Ripe Cheesecake.

There was once a Cherry Ripe chocolate ice cream bar launched, yet that didn't seem to get any traction.
