Careless Wispa

Apparently Cadburys has yielded to public demand and is to reintroduce Wispas. No doubt there will be more revivals as they seek to put the salmonella scares of recent years behind them and remind us of a more wholesome past. The Wispa bar always struck me as a bit redundant - a bland girlie imitation of the mighty Aero. I believe Terrys did a similar close-textured Wispa-type bar - better quality of course, being Terrys. That fine York company also made the best of all chocolate assortments - Spartan (all hard centres). One with Nineveh and Tyre now of course... Spartan should be brought back - and when it comes to bars, I'd nominate Tiffin, the original Tiffin that is - and the iconic 5 Boys. Any more?

  2. Of course what I want to see is 'Snickers' (sounds like what Labour do behind Gordon's back) replaced with its original Marathon Bar. How about bringing back those awesome Flake ads etc - totally appropriate in this 'Carbon Neutral Car Insurance" age ...
