I bought these new Cadbury Wispa: Biscuits a little while ago when they were first released since I’d really enjoyed the Creme Egg version, and I’m obviously a fan of the Wispa bar too.

The ‘delicious biscuits filled and coated with velvety Wispa chocolate’ were branded in the usual way and there was a nice image of the deep, bubbly filling on the packet’s wrapper. Unfortunately, there were only eight in the pack, although this was still more than the Creme Egg ones!

Mondelez’s ‘scrummy biscuits’ had been made by Burton’s Biscuit Co. and had a wrinkly surface, rather than a smooth one, with slightly jagged bases too. On the inside, they looked very much like the packaging had promised, with a deep chocolate filling sitting atop a pale biscuit. There was a strong chocolatey scent, too, that was just like that of an actual Wispa.

On trying the biscuits, I couldn’t believe that they ‘only’ contained 58% milk chocolate – they were fantastically chocolatey! The flavour was recognisably Cadbury, as well, but I did find the Wispa’s texture was disguised by the crunchy biscuit (this was an observation rather than a bad thing!). However, I did particularly like the added density at the centre of each biscuit.

As tasty as this product was, there’s no avoiding the fact that they were essentially very chocolatey biscuits. To make things a little more interesting, I wonder what a Wispa: Gold version would be like (apart from messy!)?

Appearance: 7.5/10
