Mmm lovely.. Wispa bars are back!

What other chocolate would you want brought back?

Pyramint was another favourite of mine.

Popping up to point out for probably the 56th time that whispa bars never left, just briefly had a name and slight shape change.

Actually had a Wispa bar about 2 weeks ago... the first time in about six years!

Best chocolate bar... ever!

Why the f**k was it taken off the shelves in the first place!?!?

No - I think they were the 500ml variety of can, which whilst fine for lager and other serious mind rot, caused much puking and diabetes amongst the youth of the day. Sensibly they switched to resealable bottles shorty afterwards :)
