Welcome back chocolate Tiffin... We've missed you!
Chocolate we love you! Here at Woman’s Own, it’s no secret we are all self-confessed chocoholics – chocolate bars, sweets, biscuits and cakes…we love them all! But, if you are a chocolate lover like us, you will know that there are tons of chocolate bars and sweet treats that are no longer around! Do you miss your favourite retro chocolate bar from your childhood? Which one was your favourite?
From the classic Wispa Mint (every mint lovers favourite!), to a tasty Trio, Cadbury’s Flyte, Toffo, Fuse, Kit Kat Caramel and many many more, click through our slideshow above to see the tasty treats we want to see back again! Please will somebody write a letter to Cadburys!!!
That’s right, we’ve decided to take a sugary trip down memory lane, reminiscing the tasty treats we used to love and wouldn’t mind seeing back on our shelves again. And even though we know we shouldn’t be eating more sugar, we are sure we can make an exception for one of these! Who could say no to a Club bar with their cuppa?! Exactly!
Have we missed your all-time favourite? Let us know on Facebook, Twitter, or in the comment box below and we will add it to our gallery above.
Do you remember these?!
2003-2007 was a dark time for chocoholics, but our chocolately prayers were answered in 2008 when Cadbury decided to bring back the Wispa bar. Even though we get to enjoy the original Wispa and Wispa Gold again, we’d love to see the Wispa Mint back on the shelves too.
Flytes were the hot topic of conversation on our Facebook page when we asked you what chocolates were your old school favourites. The Flyte was another sneaky treat that has somehow slipped off into the unknown, but we’ve still got our fingers crossed we’ll spy them somewhere. We miss that whipped, nougat-style centre.
The Bisc& Twix came into our lives in 2005, but sadly didn’t stick around for too long. Thank goodness we still have the original Twix to enjoy.
In 2005, we said goodbye to the Cadbury Spira. The twisty milk chocolate treat had an unusual hollow centre, which was commonly used as a quirky straw.
One type of Toffo just wasn’t enough. Oh, no. The tasty tube of toffee bites also came in a range of different assortments – pineapple, strawberry or apple toffee anyone?
The Fuse made huge news when it hit the sweet stands in 1996, as it sold a whopping 40 million bars in just one week. That’s a LOT of Fuse fans, so it’s surprising that the chocolate, peanut, raisin, crispy cereal and fudge delight was discontinued in 2006. Come back to our lives, please!
Now these are a real blast from the past. We loved the grape ones, the orange ones, the apple ones…who are we kidding, we loved every single Jolly Rancher.
We know there’s still a lot of KitKats out there, but there was something about the Senses that made it a little different. Nestle’s answer to a Kinder Bueno, the chocolate bar had a wafer and hazelnut centre, and if you cast your mind back, you might remember a certain Cheryl Cole and the rest of Girls Aloud featuring in the TV ad.
Fruiti-licious Joosters were a jelly bean spin-off of the original Starburst chews – but they’ll always be Opal Fruits to us!
Another blast from the past courtesy of our Facebook fans, Cabana was part of the Rowntrees family, made up of an unusual mix of cherry, coconut, caramel and milk chocolate.
Blue Club biscuits
We definitely like a lot of chocolate on our biscuit, so there’s no doubt we love a Club. The lunchbox favourite is still around today in the form of orange, mint and fruit Clubs, but we haven’t seen the original one around in a while.
An explosion of two of our favourite sweet treats, we can’t believe the KitKat Caramac didn’t stick around for longer. RIP you sweet, sweet friend.
Irn Bru bars
If you were partial to a glass of bright orange Irn Bru, chances are you snapped up a few of these bars in their heyday. They were quirky, but they worked!
