Hi Melnq, Non-pareils look very similiar. In NSW, speckles are called freckles, here's a picture. They are dark chocolate disks topped with what we call "hundreds and thousands."

Thanks Susan. Yep, they look very similar - I've seen non-pariels with the multi colored sprinkes too - never did understand the name though.

I'm suddenly craving chocolate...

If you're still tuned in, Janene, this article in The Economist will interest you - the writer tours a number of Australin wine regions.

Melnq, as per the picture Susan posted, freckles are small chocolate discs with multi-coloured hard candy. I've only ever seen them in milk chocolate, not dark. Allen's confectionery calls them Freckles, but local South Australian chocolatier Haighs calls them Speckles. I think Haighs is a superior tasting chocolate, but comes with a superior price too. Allen's confectionery is a good brand though.
