Yep...just had my first Wispa bar since ...1984??? Would I be right on that date!!

Aaaaahhhhh...happy days!! Though...not as 'bubbly' as I remember BUT tastes the same!!

Now time for the Wagon Wheel to make a comeback! And washed down by a can of Shandy.....!!

Been out of the uK for a while now, I really miss Biscuit Boost :-(

Though I do have fond memories of the Wispa.

Bet it's not the same size you remember either.

I don't think Wagon Wheels have ever gone away - it's just that a lot of retailers just don't carry them (and they're not 3d any more).

ALDI have had Wagon Wheels recently, well they said Wagon Wheels, but they were smaller. Much smaller . . .

Wilkinsons too, apparently:- Burtons Wagon Wheels x 6 at Wilkinson Plus (http://www.wilkinsonplus.com/invt/0240929)

Wasn't the filling really dried shaving foam?

It tasted like it!:yuk:

Try the new Double Deckers - definitely bigger than the original, with the same scrummy flavour...

Low profile Waggon Wheels? :D Just dont tell the boy racers or they will all want them!

I missed the Wispa like crazy although I thought it exited stage a bit later than 1984, I would have put the date at more like 1994 but the decades are starting to merge into one blurred fast-track (possibly caused by the super duper speed we now get from our new, low profile Waggon Wheels).

From Wiki:-
In 2003, after its discontinuation, Cadbury brought the Wispa back onto market as "Dairy Milk Bubbly", reformatting it as a standard 'chunks' bar (similar to other 'Dairy Milk' products) instead of the earlier whole-bar approach. However, in 2007, helped by an internet campaign, the Wispa bar was relaunched, albeit for a "limited period". In October 2008 Wispa returned again to shops in the UK due to the chocolate bar's popularity during the previous limited period release.

Can you send a box out to the UAE we'll pay you in oil:ok:

Anyone remember the Aztec Bar must have been way back in the 70's but it seems it went the same way as the South American tribe it was named after and completely disappeared:(
