Cadbury Wispa Biscuits Review
Whilst in Asda recently I spotted these new Wispa biscuits so of course I couldn't resist giving them a try. Wispa is such an iconic British brand and it's only made a resurgence in recent years, but now Mondelez are pushing it into new territories; Hot Chocolate, Ice Creams, Bite-Size...and now biscuits! Of course bubbly chocolate combined with biscuit isn't really such a new concept - Fox's did it for a while with their discontinued Echo bars, and Aero also do their own range of bubbly biscuits. How do these Wispa biscuits compare?
Firstly they're very differently shaped; they're in the same round shape as the Caramel, Turkish, Creme Egg etc biscuits made by Burton's for Cadbury. They contain a shortcake base with a layer of Wispa chocolate, fully coated in milk chocolate.
If it wasn't for the layer of bubbly chocolate these would be pretty bland, but luckily it saved the day. It provided a nice familiar bubbly Wispa hit, making the biscuits extra chocolatey. Other than that the shortcake base and milk chocolate coating were nice enough - for £1 these are a decent bargain but I would never pay much more than that.
Overall these are nice, but could've been much better. If they were oblong-shaped like Aero Biscuits I think they'd be more exciting, plus, why didn't they do a Wispa Gold version?! That would surely be the best biscuit ever!
