it’s official. no more wispas.
i phoned Cadbury’s today to find out where the Wispas have gone. It turns out THEY HAVE STOPPED MAKING THEM ! the last ones were produced at the end of August 2003.
I was informed that they had been replaced by Dairy Milk Bubbly, which is nearly the same thing. Dairy Milk is Cadbury’s flag ship product and they have decided that the Wispa should be rolled in to that family.
So no more ‘velvety textured milk chocolate’. instead it’s now just ‘bubbly’.
I went in search of the last remaining Wispas which are working their way through the newsagent shelves. i was prepared for a long search through the backstreets of london, but found my favourite local newsagents on charlotte street had a few in stock:
The bubbly dairy milk hasn’t the same crunch as the old wispa. this is mostly due to its lack of girth (bubbly left, velvety right):
i remember queuing up to get my wispas as a teenager from my old school tuckshop which intriguingly operated out of the science block windows
and so another part of history dies …
