They're bringing back Wispas!

Now all we need is to bring back Vice Versas and we're golden.

I'm writing this on my PSP so I didn't read the article, but didn't they keep Wispas going under a different name? (Dairy Milk Bubbly, or something) I think they tried to bring back Vice Versas a couple years back, and I was happy to have them again, but they've gone again. What I'd really like to see is a return to the original Tooty Frooty flavours. They taste too much like real fruit now, instead of tasty artificial flavouring.

Yeah, but they just didn't taste the same. As for Vice Versas, I've not seen them for about five years or so. While they're at it, they should bring back Spiras too.

A placebo effect, maybe? I for one didn't find anything dissimilar with either Clear Pepsi or the New Coke -- but people loathe change, and therefore will find blasphemous the tampering of even the slightest of formula traditions (at least the ones that are made aware to the public).

Thankfully, I've -- mostly -- given up on my consumption of pre-packaged, artificially processed, chemically-induced "foods". It's hard to be taken in by temptation when you're aware of exactly what's in that candy bar you're eating, and what effects it will have on your body.

I drink like a bastard without a thought of the long-term effects. Worrying about KFC and chocolate bars is way beyond me (especially since I remain skinny)

Update: Wispas are on the shelves!

I bought a couple today, and I can assure you that they are certainly a whole different breed from Aero bars. I wouldn't even compare the two, and yes, nostalgia is a very powerful force. I don't think I've had a Wispa for about ten years or so.
