If you are one of those who rejoiced when Cadbury’s brought back their bubbly Wispa chocolate bar then you may well be pleased to hear that the caramel filled version known as Wispa Gold is also set to make a comeback, albeit temporarily, on September 14th.
The Wispa Gold was one of the many derivatives of the Cadbury Wispa to appear on sweetie shop shelves, and presumably one of the most popular since it is the first to be reissued. It was basically just a standard Cadbury Wispa but with a layer of smooth caramel sitting atop the bubbly chocolate and hiding beneath the outer chocolate shell.
To promote this comeback Cadbury even produced the world’s most expensive chocolate bar by wrapping a standard Wispa Gold in a wrapper of gold leaf, making it worth a whopping Â£961.48. I wonder if whoever bought that one greedily ripped the wrapper off and threw it in the nearest rubbish bin?
Many thanks to Hindleyite at Retroyakking for making me aware of the Wispa Gold’s re-release, and I can’t help but wonder how long it will be before the Wispa Mint, Wispa Cappuchino and all the other versions which I’ve probably forgotten about also make a return?
