Made in Australia, these Rocky Roads fundraising packs offer a variety of flavours of peanut, egg and dairy free goodness which practically sell themselves.

Rocky Road House was started by an Aussie mum keen to find a dessert suitable for her daughter who had allergies to nuts, gluten and eggs. What started as a hobby soon became a national business, with fundraising packs now available across Australia.
Fundraising bars are 100g and come in eight different flavours including popping candy, milk chocolate, white chocolate and cranberry, raspberry and honeycomb crunch. In the name of research I have willingly sampled a number of the bars* and can assure you they are fresh and full of flavour – the chocolate and marshmallow are very good quality, and the variety packs have a good mix of dark, milk and white chocolate bars, meaning they will appeal to a wide audience.
Each 100g bar is packaged in a sturdy cardboard/plastic box in fun colours.
Full ingredient lists and nutritional information is available on the website here.
The fundraising process
There is a minimum order of 16 boxes for fundraisers, costing $576 (payable within 30 days from invoice). Shipping is free however, and the profit for 16 boxes is $192.
The ordering process is done entirely online and is very simple. Access the Rocky Road website and go to the ‘Shop’ option, then you click on Fundraising which takes you to a dedicated page.
It is recommended to allow one box (or twelve bars) per student. A school with 100 students participating in the fundraiser would make a clear profit of $1,200.
The 100g bars are perfect for one or two people and not too confronting for even the most health-conscious parent.
Boxes are pre-packed with a variety of flavours. You could boost sales with a marketing campaign such as ‘what’s your favourite flavour’, encouraging people to try as many flavours as possible.
There is no requirement for upfront payment which means that the club or school can complete the fundraiser and then pay the invoice with no need to have the money in advance.
A Rocky Road drive would work particularly well just before Christmas or Easter.
