Cadbury Wispa

Cadbury Wispa

Having apparently been partly responsible for helping to bring Wispa back, it’s only fitting we should be… er… pretty much the last people to review it now it’s actually available again.

Wispa is very, very simple: Cadbury milk chocolate tiny bubbles in it.  So listen carefully, here comes the science bit:

Most of us eat chocolate regularly, and we may even check the ingredients when looking for the best chocolate experience. But did you know the shape of your chocolate can affect the taste almost as much as the ingredients?

It’s all down to surface area. Chocolate with a higher surface area to volume ratio will be crumblier and melt in the mouth more quickly. That’s the reason chocolates like Flake, Aero and Wispa just taste different, even when they contain exactly the same ingredients as their solid counterparts.

Cadbury Wispa

All those tiny little bubbles in Wispa increase the surface area massively and mean the chocolate starts to melt almost as soon as it hits your mouth. The result is that this fairly standard milk chocolate just feels creamier and more satisfying, than a solid block.

So was it worth bringing back? Well, yes, absolutely. Wispa may just be Dairy Milk with holes in it, but those holes completely change the texture and taste of the chocolate. You shouldn’t expect Wispa to suddenly be something wonderful just because Cadbury brought it back from the dead. It’s still just a fairly average looking and tasting bar of chocolate, but it’s certainly one deserves its place on the supermarket shelves.

So, now that’s out of the way, I’d like to end this review with three simple words: Bring Back Fuse!

    The wispa bar really bores me; it’s so overated and I would much rather have a Crunchie or a Picnic, which are both bars that Cadbury have mastered brilliantly.

    It is true that the texture and shape of chocolate can determine its flavour. However Wispa also contains different amounts of milk and cocoa to Dairy Milk. Wispas are fantastic! I’m totally hooked….

  17. What i don’t understood is if truth be told how you’re not actually much more smartly-appreciated than you
    may be now. You are very intelligent. You recognize thus considerably relating
    to this topic, produced me individually consider it from a lot of numerous angles.
    Its like men and women are not interested except it is something to
    accomplish with Lady gaga! Your individual stuffs excellent.
    Always deal with it up!
