Review: Wispa Gold Hot Chocolate

I was a fan of the Wispa Hot Chocolate that came out last year and have bought it fairly regularly since it's release. That frothy top is quite something and my kids especially enjoy it. It's wonderful to see a Wispa Gold version being released, something that Kev asked for in his original review of the Wispa Hot chocolate last year (see here) so I  like to think that we have him to thank for it!

The Wispa Gold is just as frothy as it's original variety. It's great watching all the bubbles froth up as soon as the water is added. The bubbles last for a while too, they don't just disappear immediately like most frothy drinks. The flavour here has the same sweet chocolatey base as the Wispa original hot chocolate, it's very sweet with a decent chocolate taste (it's not too mild tasting like some hot chocolates can be). I loved the caramel flavour here, it has more of a melted soft caramel edge rather than a stronger toffee type of flavouring, and it's lovely combined with the base chocolate. I'll certainly be buying these again in future.

So which chocolate bar would you like to see Cadbury make into a Hot Chocolate next? I love reading your comments so let me know your thoughts below :)

  1. Thanks for the mention Katherine :) Haha I'd like to think I was responsible for these but I guess they were already planning it if the original was successful. They just need to do Mint now! (and bring back the Wispa Mint bar while they're at it!)

    1. I would LOVE if they did a mint version! That would be ace :)

  2. I think they should do a Cadbury's Crunchy version with a honeycomb froth

  3. I think they should do a Cadbury's Double Decker version with a delicious sachet of crisped cereal to add as a sprinkle top

  4. I think they should do a Cadbury's Cabana version with glace cherry flavour froth and a coconut bottom

  5. I think they should do a Malteser's version which, combined with the light bubbles of the drink, might remind us of the inexorable lightness of being


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
