Yho, 2021 has been a doozy.
But that doesn’t mean it’s over just yet.
Just when the end of the year fatigue sets in, Woolies goes and adds some sweet to the sour, literally speaking.
Taking to social media this week, the supermarket introduced a new flavour to their in-house ice cream range – Chuckles Malt Crunch dairy ice cream.
With the caption “Did we just fix 2021?,” we reckon they summed up the past year perfectly.

Commenting on the latest additions to the line - Chuckles Malt Crunch dairy ice cream and Mini Malt Crunch solos – product developer for Woolworths Frozen Foods Department Carol Weideman said.
“We are extremely excited about this launch, as we have been working and wanting to introduce specifically the Ice cream for a while now.”
Referring to the Chuckles Mini Malt Crunch Solos, she added they are made of malt flavoured dairy ice cream, enrobed in a milk chocolate coating with crisp malt meringue pieces.
“Overall, the flavour and texture delivery should remind your senses of eating our ionic malt Chuckles,” Weideman concluded.
Woolies, why must you lead us into temptation like this? We had aspirations of following healthy eating plans. Now they’re just a forgotten relic like our New Year’s resolutions that don’t make it beyond January 5.
We don’t like it one bit.
Tweeps welcomed the news while others shared our sentiment, joking that Woolies were derailing their diet plans for the new year.
