Distributed by Allens these lollies came in a red box similar to Chico's. They were a large chewy caramel bullet covered in coconut. Very yummy and taken off our shelves in the early 90's

I was talking about these mollies tonight to some friends who didn't remember them and know I have found a whole underground family of believers that not only remember but actually had them. I loved them and I love you. Bring back the coconut quiver Mr Allens.

You can buy these from ye old lollie shop in Perth, Carillion arcade, but they taste similar but not as good as the red box ones you use to get. Also I know there is a recipe out there, because my Dad use to make them for us, many many,many years ago

I rang Allens ages ago they did not have enough demand for them to keep producing. I have tried all the others including having some sent from Victoria to WA not the same by far. I love love loved them.

Some of the Warehouse/Discount Shops stock a similar lolly but the caramel is soft in the middle, i buy them and put them in the freezer, almost as good and only $2 packet, not sure what their name is but definately caramel covered in coconut.

One lolly you can taste when you think of them. No other lolly has the same caramel or the creamy coconut taste. Does anyone else remember a chocolate soldier (not chickos) milder taste than chickos? or musk creme centred chocolates?

OMG I lovvvvvvved Coconut Quivers... I can taste them now just inking about them. Have only ever found soft substitutes...very disappointing... Couldn't remember the name of them until I found this thread. I also lament the passing of hard Jubes (Allen's Marella)... same people who made the Quivers. Everything they sell as jubes these days are soft like jellies...yuck! Not the same at all. Thanks for sharing delicious memories

I want the harder toffee type ones. Who has a recipe?

To OMG Allens Marella Jubes are still available in many stores, but you just have to be lucky to find them. Coconut Quivers in the back seat in the sixties YUM. Nothing like them now and I dearly hope someone can post a recipe for us CQ fans. Surely if Allen's does not wish to make they could share the recipe with fans

Allens Marella jubes are available at Ooh La Lollipop in Bridgetown WA. We also stock Caramel Kisses which are very, very similar to coconut quivers.:-) Plus we have Choo Choo Bars, milkos, and loads of other lollies from your past :-).

My mum made these for us all the time. Search on rum Balls. The receipt is exactly the same but with no Rum. We use 250g of crushed plain sweet biscuits, 2tablespoons of cocoa and 1 tin (395g) of sweetened condensed milk. Mix together well then roll into balls and roll in coconut. Delicious!!!!

I found a way to make them use columbines, melt them with a little butter on the stove top put two tablespoons coconut in mixture stir cool a little roll in coconut put in fridge enjoy they wont be the same shape but the taste is pretty close

When we make russian caramel and get it wrong on some occasions when it turns out chewy I roll small balls of it in coconut to make my own coconut quivers. Taste great and familiar. Sarah you should give it a go.
