      A nice little treat

      BACK STORY ----------------- Wispa bars used to be around years ago but were discontinued and taken off the shelves but brought back again for good in 2008. Wispa gold (another variety of the wispa bar) was also discontinued at the same time but they too were brought back and were relaunched in 2009 but only for a limited period, but by popular demand they came back permanently in 2011. I for one am glad they did. They are yummy!! WHAT ARE THEY LIKE? ---------------------------------- Wispa Golds, like original wispa bars, has a layer of hard cadburys chocolate around the outside (like holding it together) and then the chocolate inside is made up of tiny bubbles. The chocolate is creamy and tastes like good quality chocolate but is also light and airy because of the bubbles. What makes the gold variety different is that is has a layer of caramel on top of the bubbles but is still cased inside the chocolate top layer. The caramel is not a hard or chewy caramel but is quite runny and compliments the chocolate well. There is 265 calories in one bar, but obviously it's a chocolate bar, we're not eating it to be healthy! PRICE AND AVAILABILITY ------------------------------------- Wispa gold 's are available from most supermarkets and news agents or little corner shop type shops. They sell for generally about 59p each but are often on offer like three for £1 or two for 80p so you can often get them on quite a good deal. CONCLUSION ------------------- I love wispa 's and wispa gold 's! They are so yummy and a nice little treat that are not too pricey. I only wish wispa would bring back the mint one too!! If you like chocolate and if you like caramel you can't go wrong with these!! 5/5 for me Thank you for reading xx Mrs K xx

        I hope these don''t go away again

        I am an absolute chocoholic. There probably isn't a day that goes by when I don't eat something chocolately or other. I am currently in a Wispa Gold phase..... this phase has been ongoing for about a year and I eat probably 2 of these a week. I am fortunate enough to remember these the first time round in the mid 90s and I am so glad they are back. They come in a gold foil wrapper with bubble writing stating that this is a bar from Cadburys. As an aside, the first time I saw one of these bars I thought it was a "Wispa Cola" which excited me enormously as I have always loved dipping chocolate bars in fizzy drinks. The wrapper tells you that a Wispa gold provides you with 265 calories. Personally, I'd rather not know that little nugget of information!! The chocolate bar inside is like a standard Wispa - Cadbury mild chocolate with very small bubbles throughout, but this has a layer of caramel on top. The caramel in my opinion is just perfect. It is quite runny, not like a twix or mars bar and even on a cold October day this caramel is like molten gold. Beautiful Perhaps it is because of the almost liquid consistency but the caramel within a Wispa Gold is really sweet - a lot more so than that in a twix for example. For this reason, I can imagine a lot of people would find this chocolate bar quite sickly. I know for a fact that my boyfriend often can't manage a whole one and as a result I have to step in and take over! I must admit, watching one of these bars being snapped in half is a real sight to behold, especially as it inevitably results in the soft caramel dripping down! Wispa Golds can be bought in most newsagents etc and they go for around 70p each which is about average for a standard bar of chocolate these days sadly. There was a rumour that these were going to be a limited edition thing again but that was over a year ago and it seems these wonderful things are here to stay. Hurrah Tesco is currently doing these at a deal of 3 for £1.20 which makes them extremely good value. Thank you for reading

          Wispa Gold is rubbish and comes in at a miserable third place behind Wispa Mint and Wispa (original), in fact I would even rate nothing higher than a stinking Wispa Gold - that's right, I would rather taste three-hour old lunch particles dislodged from my teeth than endure the 'Gold.My friend Colin Taylor is an idiot for liking Wispa Golds. He does not understand the concept of flavour. He probably eats toothpaste. I would give this product five stars out of five only because I would want the awesome thermal power of such a cluster of suns to wipe the product, and its various sources, out for good (at the same time leaving the production of the original and Mint varieties unharmed).Kraft, I will be considering coming after you for compensation. Good day.(I will not be paying GBP 3.75 + shipping for this product.)

          Last a bit longer than a plain Wispa bar

          This is a review of Cadbury Wispa Gold. We've had a few bars in the house recently due to a great price on packs of four at Home Bargains. There's four months left on the sell by date so I'm not sure why they are so cheap but we have enjoyed eating them! Description Each bar is around 16cm in length and made of the lovely bubbly chocolate we associate with Cadbury's Wispa. The extra special bit about Wispa Gold is the caramel that sits inside the bar. Packaging The bar is wrapped in gold foil which is lovely and inside it is silver. There is currently a promotion on to keep Team GB pumped in reference to the Olympics later this year. On the front of the bar there is a small 'Be Treatwise' logo advising that one bar will add 265 calories to your daily intake. Not an everyday snack then! Price I mentioned earlier they were a bargain but I held back the price... four bars for 99p so just under 25p a bar is a brilliant price these days. I bought our four pack(s) from Home Bargains as a treat. I would not pay 60p for an individual bar as I'd rather go without. My thoughts This bar reminds me of the caramel chocolates you get inside tins of Roses. They are really sweet and I do feel a bit sickly after eating one of these bars, I just don't have the resistance of a child to sweet food these days! Final word Despite the sickly after effects, I find a cup of tea and a bar of Wispa Gold is an extravagant and delightful addition to a hard day. It doesn't take long to eat one due to the bubbly melty chocolate and the runny caramel just slides straight down your throat! I would recommend Wispa Gold as a yummy treat but don't go overboard just because they are cheap.

            A great tasting chocolate bar

            I am a chocolate lover, and although I try to be good with my diet, occasionally, I will allow myself a chocolate bar and one my current favourites is the Wispa Gold. The Wispa Gold used to be a seasonal chocolate bar that would be limited edition and I was always quite sad when it stopped being sold everytime, but rumour has it that this time, it is here to stay for at least a year and this makes me very happy, although I have stocked up on a few in my kitchen, just in case!! Wispa Gold is made by Cadbury and it is basically their normal Wispa bar, with a layer of caramel through the middle. The chocolate is soft and bubbly, and it melts in your mouth in a really smooth way. The caramel is of the perfect consistency, not too thick that it sticks to the roof of your mouth, but not so thin it is like you're drinking it. The bar is nice and thick, so you get a good bite every time, and it just tastes oh so good. The bar comes in a foil wrapper, which is gold in colour and has the Wispa Gold logo on the front of it. Like other chocolate bars, this one is high in sugar, fats and calories, which is why I only allow myself to eat one once in a while. One bar of Wispa Gold will provide your body with 265 calories!! It is worth treating yourself with one of these from time to time, I think. You can buy Wispa Gold pretty much any where chocolate is sold, including Tesco, Sainsburys, Morrisons, Boots, Superdrug, Newsagents and Petrol Stations, amongst many other places. The price will vary depending on where you are buying it from, but it will cost somewhere between 65p and 89p. Some places are doing deals when you buy 2 of these bars, so this could be good to look out for. I love Wispa Gold and it is a chocolate bar I totally recommend to everyone. I give this a 5 out of 5 stars. Enjoy!!

              A nice twist on a classic chocolate bar

              After a hard weekend of catching up with housework, my partner and I took a walk to the corner shop last night to treat ourselves to a chocolate bar to eat whilst chilling out with a film. I was pleased to see that Wispa Gold is back, after disappearing from the shelves for a while, and the packaging just jumped out at me as it's gold and very vibrant. It cost around 55p which is standard for a chocolate bar these days, you can expect to pay anywhere around the 50p/60p mark. The Wispa Gold bar is similar to a traditional Wispa, but with a layer of caramel inside the bar. Just in case anyone has been living on another planet and doesn't know what a Wispa is, a Wispa is a solid chocolate bar with a light textured centre, making it hard to bite into but it feels light on the tastebuds. Wispa Gold includes a layer of Caramel just below the surface, which alters the texture and adds something different. The inclusion of the caramel layer in this chocolate bar makes the texture very interesting. At first you get the hard bite of the solid bar, and then you're hit by the smooth gooey caramel layer. The caramel layer is not thick, it's only a few millimetres thick, but it's lovely and silky smooth and is just the right amount of caramel to make this chocolate bar not taste sickly. After taking your first bite, you can see the majority of the bar is made up of chocolate with little honeycomb-style holes in it, which is the trademark of the Wispa bar, and the caramel layer sits at the top of the bar, and is then covered in chocolate. The texture of this bar is most unusual, and unlike any other chocolate bar I've had. It's a nice contrast between the chunky chocolate and the soft smooth caramel, and it creates a taste explosion in your mouth. The best thing about this chocolate bar is that it certainly fills a gap in your hunger. By the final bite I felt really full and was almost glad to be at the end of the bar because I couldn't have eaten any more. It satisfied my hunger and my chocolate craving (new year diet isn't going so well!), and was lovely and sweet. If anything, some people might find this a little too sickly, luckily I have quite a sweet tooth so this didn't bother me. Nutritionally, this bar doesn't make great reading. One bar (52g) contains 265 calories, 23.8g sugars, 15.1g fat, 9g saturates, and 0.2g salt. I don't have a problem with treating myself every once in a while, especially after a day's housework, but I wouldn't have one of these every day or I'd be the size of a house! Allergy information - we are told that this chocolate bar contains milk (what a surprise) , and that it may contain nuts and soya

                A treat which you do not want to end

                I wouldn't call myself a chocoholic but for wisper gold I could change my mind. I first tasted a whisper gold many years ago and instantly loved it. The smooth, creamy, bubbly chocolate that can only be cabury's mixed with a smooth runny caramel centre. What more could you want from a bar of chocolate. When you put the bar in the fridge the chocolate becomes firm and chilled while the caramel remains soft (this can not be said for many caramel bars of chocolate). You can imagine my shock and horror when wisper gold came off the shelves and did not return. I could not think of any reason why this would have happened. But slowly I got over my devastation and moved on with my life. A few months ago I was shopping and low and behold out of the corner of my eye and seen that familiar gold wrapping and thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. I went closer and seen my favourite chocolate bars. An even better surprise was that they were 4 for a £1. I was a little apprehensive to try one at first because as with many other 'food come backs' sometimes the product can change and not live up to your expectations. However, I am pleased to say that this was not the case, the chocolate bar was just as I had remembered smooth, creamy and lovely (and the same size as it used to be). As a final note all I can say is thank you so much Cabury's for bringing back my bar of heaven.

                  OK FOR A TREAT

                  Cadbury (now under ownership of Kraft) produce various chocolate treats for adults and children. *Product* The Wispa Gold is described as being "textured milk chocolate bar with soft caramel". The original Wispa was introduced in 1983. Wispa Gold was introduced in 1995 and was taken off ours shelves for several years alongside the original. It was relaunched in 2009 and has recently been confirmed that it is back to stay! *Packaging* Wispa Gold comes in a shiny gold foil wrapper which is tapered at both ends. The Cadbury logo is recognisable and the Wispa Gold logo is in huge yellow bubble letters. "The Wispa you love with a cheeky caramel layer" is written across the wrapper. On the back of the wrapper, you will find the ingredients, nutrition and some details about Cadbury and how to contact them. The wrapper can be recycled. *Chocolate* The Wispa Gold comes in the form of a long and thick bar. It is quite bubbly on the underside and slightly indented along the sides and across the top. Inside the bar, there is a thick bubbly layer and a nice layer of caramel running across the top (more on this in my opinion lol). *Ingredients* Milk chocolate (milk, sugar, cocoa butter, cocoa mass, dried skimmed milk, vegetable fat, emulsifier, flavourings), caramel (35%) (glucose syrup, sweetened condensed skimmed milk, vegetable oil, sugar, glucose-fructose syrup, invert sugar syrup, dried skimmed milk, salt, sodium bicarbonate, flavouring. Contains milk and may contain a trace of nuts. These are suitable for vegetarians. *Nutrition* The worse part? The bar is 52g and contains : 260 calories 23.9g sugar 8.9g saturated fat 0.2g salt *Availability and Price* The bars can be bought in various corner shops and supermarkets at around the 50p mark. *My Opinion* You all know I love my chocolate (more than I love my dentist). I personally don't remember these from my childhood, I remember original Wispas though. Since these were relaunched, I have had them a few times. My local shop had these on 2 for 80p alongside some other treats so of course I bought 2 bars! Now it has been a long day..my toddler has been up since 5.30am and has just went to sleep (7pm) so I need a seat and something sugary. I dug this out and proceeded to open that shiny wrapper. The Wispa Gold looked perfectly smooth with a bubbly bottom and smelt creamy just like a Dairy Milk. Taking my first bite, I can taste a light and bubbly chocolate base and a little caramel plonked on the top. The outer layer of chocolate was thick enough to hold everything in but was quite soft to bite into it. The chocolate was so tasty and although not quite as bubbly as say an Aero, it certainly wasn't heavy. I was quite upset at the lack of caramel however my doubts were dashed as I worked further along the bar. It appears that the caramel layer gets deeper nearer the middle of the bar. The caramel is perfectly smooth and golden. It has a pleasant creaminess to it and is very sweet and quite sickly. It is thick enough so that if you turned the bar up on its side, it wouldn't run out but thin enough to runny down your throat without gagging. The texture of the overall bar was spot on however I felt rather sick after devouring the whole bar to myself! Anymore caramel and I would have been really ill but it was tasty all the same. I did feel super guilty when I read the calories and sugar content! Wow 260 calories and nearly 24g of sugar..really one will do. I couldn't imagine eating this all the time. Ok for an occasional treat! Thanks for reading

                    Advantages

                    Disadvantages

                    Very average choccy bar

                    Background: It would appear we have networking sites such as Facebook to thank for the return of the Cadbury's Wispa range. The Wispa Gold bar first introduced back in 1995 retuned to our shelves in 2009, when pressure was brought on the company to re-install it to its successful range of chocolate bars that followed the return of the original Wispa Bar. (Maybe the Mint one will be next?) Price: I bought my 52g Wispa Gold bar from my local Supermarket Sainsbury's who were having a promotion two for 80p. The usual price is 59p, which is a little more than the original Wispa bars that sell for 53p each. Packaging: For me the packaging makes the bar instantly recognisably even when confronted with many alternative brands. What makes this product stick out are two things, the gold colour of the wrapper and the very distinctive Wispa Gold name proudly displayed long the length of the bar. The bar has two very easy to rip ends that allow to carry the product by and they make getting the bar out to eat east without any litter or mess. Most of the product information is stored on the bottom of the wrapper and includes; the nutritional values, ingredient listings and details about Cadbury's and what to do if you are not satisfied with the product. Product: The product measures 12 cm long by 2cm wide and is 1.5cm in depth. What really stuck me as I opened the wrapper was the very rich, powerful and appealing smell of the chocolate, it reminded me of Easter Eggs from bygone days. I have to say looking at the product outside its wrapper it did not look exceptionally appealing, but that I hoped would all be transformed when I bit into the chocolate. Ingredients: Milk chocolate, Caramel (35%), Glucose syrup, sweetened condensed skimmed milk, vegetable oil, sugar, glucose-fructose syrup, invert sugar syrup, dried skimmed milk, salt, sodium bicarbonate, flavouring. Each Bar contains: Calories: 260 Sugars: 23.9g Fat: 14.9g Saturates: 8.9g Salt: 0.2g Allergy advice: This Product may contain: Soya and Nuts Taste: As soon as a took a bite of the bar I was reminded of that thick Wispa chocolate taste, for me a little bland on it own but with a layer of caramel it added a new taste and demension to the chocolate. It is very easy to bite into and not at all hard when you put it into your mouth. With the caramel it is a little chewing and the sweet and seductive flavour of this bar. It kind of remains me of the Mars bar but with a different classical Cabdury's chocolate on the outside. Opinion: For me what made this such a pleasurable experience was the gorgorous layer of caramel that ran through the bar. It was so sweet it perfectly offset the thicker chocolate that surrounded it. This is the chocolate that is used in the original Wispa bars and looks and tastes exactly the same with the little bubbles within it. I must admit I find Wispa Bars a little bland and I would have found the same here had it not been for this wonderful caramel layer. For me the rest of the chocolate is a bit bitter and not at all the sweet sensation you expect. In an odd way it reminds me in taste of dark chocolate. I found the bar was about eight good mouthfalls for me and something I would really liked to have savoured , but because its all one long bar you can't really save some for later as there is no obvious point that you can do that. The thing that really makes this bar worthy in my opinion is the caramel layer, I found I savoured this taste that reminded me of golden syrup or the Cadbury's Caramel Bar. I feel like the return of the Wispa Gold bar is like a return to the past. It still holds its appeal for me and tastes every bit as good as I remember it. Although I have to admit it didn't seem as thick in depth terms as I remember it. I'm sure I used to find it a bit of a struggle to get one of these into my mouth but this time it seemed fine. There is an obvious conclusion you could draw, but I'm not going to say it!!! When I came to look at which each bar contained I was disappointed. I could live with the high calorie count and almost expected it, as after all this is supposed to be a treat. What I did find disappointing was each bar contains 44.5% of the daily Saturates an adult is supposed to consume. So it looks like I'll be trying not to eat anything with many Saturates the rest of the day. I did find this chocolate bar did give me a good energy rush and as such was a good snack for my breaktime. The chocolate did not melt because of the packaging and I found this product had a very good shelf life, in my case it was 6 months. Although I would recommend in summer to store these in a cool, dry place or ideally in the fridge as I do. For more information about this product go to: www.wispa.co.uk Conclusion: I must admit I enjoyed my experiment with the Wispa Gold Bar. I do not think I will be purchasing it on a regular basis, but occasionally as a change it would be nice. For me it was the caramel that made the product as I found the more traditional bubbly chocolate quite bitter and disappointing. Thanks for reading my review. @CPTDANIELS May 2010

                      Disadvantages

                      a good bar if you like quality but don't expect wispa

                      Cadbury's Wispa gold are a milk chocolate bar, which is filled with bubbles and a caramel centre. Cadbury's were first established in 1824, and have consistently remained one of the leading chocolate manufacturers. Wispa gold were first introduced in 1995, but were withdrawn for lack of interest. A trial re-introduction took place last year (2009) and they have now been made permanent. Wispa gold's are available in all major supermarkets and you should expect to pay in the region of 50p for a standard bar. Wispa gold's are packaged in a distinctive yellow wrapper, with wispa gold written in white, edged with purple. They should be kept in cool dark conditions or the fridge in the summer (they will melt very easily). Kept correctly, expect them to stay in date for a number of months. Nutritionally, a wispa gold contains 265 calories (more than a standard wispa), almost 24 grams of sugar and almost 15 grams of fat (over 8 of which are saturated). This is definitely not a healthy snack, but good as a treat. I have to admit that given the choice I would prefer a 'normal' wispa over the gold variety. The caramel centre is very runny (to the point that I find them quite difficult to eat), while most of the bubbles that give texture to a normal wispa are missing with the gold (a layer of non-bubbly chocolate surrounds the caramel). Although the taste of good quality milk chocolate is there, together with a real 'sugar hit' overall the bar comes across as not really knowing whether it wants to be caramel or bubble based.

                        A great Cadbury bar, worthy of the name

                        On the quiet I `m a bit of a secret chocolate scoffer, I go to shop and buy three to four bars at a time, and I eat them all within hours, I would go as far as to say I`m addicted, and if dieting, I eat no chocolate or sweets as I dont do "ones" Lucky for me I`m not on a diet often..I came across these Wispa Golds in my local Co-op the other day, they were retailing at 3 for a £1. So I dutifully picked up my three. On leaving the shop I was inspecting my purchases before opening, I noticed that the bar contained 52g and was textured milk chocolate with soft caramel...mmm. I opened the bar and noticed it was a lovely milky chocolate colour, and bit straight into it. The texture was creamy, very chocolatey and reminded me of an aero. There was a thin layer of caramel and to be quiet honest if I hadnt read it was in there, I wouldnt have noticed. I loved the combination of whole effect though and found it was a rich, smooth chocolate which could easily be eaten by a variety of ages. I dont think its one of my favourites though, I usually like Cadburys bars that are crunchy, as is Whole Nut, Twix, and things similar to this. But its worthy of the Cadburys name and I`m sure it will have lots of supporters. I have seen these being retailed since my purchase at 65p and I think this is a bit expensive and would probably pick a different bar as opposed to this. Nutritional Information ================ Per Bar Energy 260kcals Protein 2.8g Carbs 29.2g of which sugars 23.9g Fat 14.9g of which saturates 8.9g Fibre 0.4g Sodium 0.08g Equivalent as salt 0.2g I think you can see from these figures this is very high in calories, over 10 % of an adults daily intake, so not a good idea to eat these if your on a diet

                        I have to confess I am a bit of a secret chocaholic. The reason I say this is due to the fact that I have a seven year old son and I being the good parent that I am try to limit the amount of sugary treats that he has on a weekly basis. Hence for him Saturday is treat day only and throughout the week he gets only healthy snacks to eat. Well what can I say he is currently getting his adult teeth and having myself just spent £150 at the dentist for a double filling wish to instill good dental practices at a young age. Hence when I feel like a treat I have to either have them at work or wait until he goes to bed in the evening. I was filling up in the garage recently and developed a chocolate craving. I was scanning the rather large selection of confectionery available when i noticed a new product that I hadn't tried before. Call me a magpie if you like I have always been attracted to shiny things and the packaging for this product is made entirely of gold foil. I picked up the item in question and discovered that it was called a Wispa Gold and being partial to the old style wispa I decided that I would give it a try. This product cost me 59p which I though was a reasonable price to pay as it looked quite substantial in size. In addition it was made by Cadbury always a firm favourite with myself. This product as stated before is based on the old style wispa chocolate bar. The twist with this item is that it contains a layer of caramel. I couldn't wait to get back to the car so that I could devour my bar of chocolate. Opening up the product it did in fact look like a traditional wispa. Thick Cadburys chocolate which was smooth on the outside resembling a bullion bar. I bit into the product and noticed that it was textured chocolate. Not crumbly holding its shape really well. It tasted velvety and utterly delicious. This was when I became aware of the taste of the caramel centre and I have to say I was in chocolate heaven. The caramel was a decent thick layer and complimented the velvety chocolate extremely well. Exactly the same as you would find in a Cadburys caramel. This was a definite winner with myself and I hope that it will be around for a good while to come. The only downside that I found was that it became a little bit sickly as it really is sweet however hit the spot as far as a sugar rush was concerned. I will most definitely be having this again and would recommend it to all. Each 52g Bar Contains Calories 260 Sugars 23.9g Fat 14.9g Saturates 8.9g Salt 0.2g www.cadbury.co.uk

                          Treat yourself to a Wispa Gold! Treasure on your tongue!

                          There is one dilemma in life that the majority of the population face; you walk into a shop craving chocolate, and you can just never decide what to buy so you linger around for a few minutes and then make a rushed decision because your other half are walking out of the shop without you!! I have defeated this dilemma by walking into a shop, spotting Wispa Gold and marching it straight to the till... sometimes marching 'them' straight to the till. You can never buy just one, for the fear that Cadbury's might take them away from us again! For those of you that haven't tried Wispa Gold, it is a Wispa (bubbly chocolate) with a layer of caramel. It will make your mouth melt! Cadbury's first released this bar in 1995. I remember eating it as a kid and absolutely loved it. Then for some reason they decided to take away all Wispa's in 2003. Thankfully due to an internet campaign, they were reinstated in 2009, with Wispa Gold's being made permanent this year! Hopefully they'll stay in the stores for years to come! Why don't they remove useless bars such as the Picnic!!! Wispa Gold is a treat. From the moment you spot the appealing gold wrapper in the shop, to the moment you sit down and enjoy it with a cup of tea. The 260 calories that it contains makes it a twice a week treat for me...as does the 8.9g of saturated fat. That is half of the days fat intake which the governement recommend. So, enjoy sparingly and make sure you walk to the shops to get it- that way you won't feel so bad!! The price of a Wispa Gold is that of most chocolate bars in the market. Around 50p-70p depending on where you shop in the country. Look out for deals though, because my local Spar had one not long ago and I stocked up on plenty for 30p a piece!! If you are a Caramel lover, then do try this. If you aren't then stick to a Wispa or get ready for the re-introduction of the Wispa Mint! I can't wait!!

                            Try one if you have a sweet tooth!

                            I really do have to stop buying chocolate bars for 'review perposes!'. Right now I am enjoying a lovely Cadbury's Wispa Gold. My corner shop was selling them off for the bargain price of 20p each, so naturally I stocked up! These normally retail at 50-60p. Not easy to miss, these come wrapped in shiny gold wrapping with Wispa Gold displayed in large orange writing. The Wispa Gold is an adaptation of the original Wispa which is basically a Cadbury's chocolate bar with air bubbles in. The gold version has a layer of smooth caramel and upon taking a bite can lead to wearing this on your chin or down your top! They do go very well together though, and I prefer this to the normal Cadbury's caramel bar as the chocolate is lighter in the Wispa Gold and doesn't feel so heavy on the stomach. Each bar isn't light on the waistline though as they contain 260 calories and 14.g of fat so should be enjoyed as an occasional treat! The bar weighs 52g so is an average size for a chocolate bar. Overall I'd urge you to try one of these if you like both chocolate and caramel as it really is nice, for those without a sweet tooth this is a very rich bar so may not suit all taste buds! 4/5 Dooyoo stars, one off for the calories and fat content but then again all things nice are packed with calories! Thank you for reading!

                              worth a try if you love your chocolate

                              I very rarely buy chocolate for myself & had good intentions of sticking to my diet yesterday & had a low-fat chocolate snack bar in my hand whilst queuing in Boots. Unfortunately when it came to pay I saw some Wispa Gold at the till point which had been reduced to 30p instead of the usual 62p so I HAD to buy one to try didn't I?! I blame the packaging because it's so very tempting with the gold foiled wrapping as it just screamed at me to try a bar. The colour is slightly different to the one in the picture as it's all gold apart from the writing. The bar was 52g & more than satisfied my need for a chocolate 'fix' - personally I think any more would have been too sickly. Cadbury's describe this as 'The Wispa you love with a cheeky caramel layer' which I think says it all really. There's a generous amount of chocolate ad you'd expect but there's also a band of delicious smooth caramel which runs through the centre. I'm not sure why but I thought the caramel would have been thicker than it actually was & I found myself with an unsightly string of the stuff on my chin. It was very nice & very tasty though but if I ever bought one again I'd pop it in the fridge first to make the centre more solid. Cadbury states on the wrapper 'Be treatwise - get to know your GDAs' but I'm afarid I didn't read the nutritional values until after I'd finished eating - I realised I'd just consumed 204 calories, 23.9g sugar & 14.9g of fat - crikey! Bang went my diet so I'm back on my healthy eating plan with a vengeance today. All the ingredients are listed under the wrapper for those who wish to know but just to warn you that the product contains milk & may contain nuts & soya. I enjoyed this Wispa Gold & would recommend trying one if you're a chocolate-lover but be warned about the high fat & sugar content.
