And from the sublime to the ridiculous.
Everyone’s been talking about the new Wispa Gold, partly because Cadbury have been trying a bit of brand awareness and trying to make it scarce to drum up a bit of interest. But does all the hullabaloo from the world’s (?) biggest chocolate maker actually mean that the Wipsa Gold is worth all the attention? I tried to find out.
First off, it costs 55p, has a gold wrapper and is essentially the same as a traditional Wispa, but just has a line of caramel running through. As I’m not the country’s biggest caramel fan, I forced myself to try it for your benefit ;-). I do add that as a kid I totally loved Wispas as well as Yorkie bars so it wasn’t really much of a chore, to be honest.
At first I thought there was going to be a lot more caramel than the initial bite proved. There just wasn’t much there. Thankfully for all the caramel lovers the second bite revealed a copious amount of the golden stuff. But even then the caramel didn’t over-power the distinctive chocolate taste that the Wispa is known for. It was actually kind of mellow to be fair. I’d still the choose the traditional version if I had the choice, or even the mint one which was quite possibly the best cheap chocolate bar to hit the market!
The problem I’ve got now is that I’ve got a load of Pralus dark chocolate to review and I’ve got the choice of filling up on sugary stuff or some of the World’s best chocolate. So I’ll place the rest of the Wispa Gold in the bin and move on. I’m sorry.
Overall, its nice to see different variations on the nation’s favourite chocolates, but I much prefer the original Wispa bar as its less sickly and messy and just had a better all-round feeling about it.
Taste: 50% – I can’t put it in the same bracket as the fine chocolate most other chocolate I review.
Texture: 50% – it was a bit too gooey for me. It’s all over my desk! Tsk!
Appearance: 60% – I liked the design of the packaging and you can’t go wrong with the simplicity of the Wispa shape. It’s national icon.
Nutritional Information: 85% – Cadbury excel at this sort of thing
Price: 80% – 55p from Superdrug is sensible price.
Overall: 65% – a good cheap chocolate bar that can be bought in a hurry on every high street. Just I won’t be elbowing my way through the Saturday crowds for one.
You can buy them in bulk or wholesale quantities from Chocolate Buttons.
