I've just come back from Australia and Mint Cracknel is alive and well down there - just wish I'd bought more bars of it back with me!!
Sorry can't remember who manufactures it there
Not a lot of help - sorry!
All the best

Mint Cracknell was a two piece bar a bit like todays Bounty My Mum would only ever buy one & my sister & I had to have half each. My ambition was to have a whole one to myself one day but by the time I had money of my own they had stopped making them! They DID cut your tongue tho' !

Cracknell bars were indeed made by John Macintoshes and Son of Halifax West Yorkshire. The cracknell sweet was first a member of the Quality Street selection and was then later made into bars, then came in Orange Cracknell, Mint Cracknell, Coffee Cracknell and Original Cracknell (original being the one found in Quality Street). Sadly it went many years ago, a shame really as this was one of my favourites.

Another bar that we think was made by Macintoshes. It was a brittle mint centre (lurid green if we remember right) covered in milk chocolate. Not sure when it went... but it surely did - apparently due to difficulties with production. The fact that it used to cut your tongue didn't help either!!!
