Cadbury's Wipsa Bars
Cadbury Wispa 
Cadbury's Wispa bars were first produced in 1981. They were a bit like an Aero bar, but with smoother more velvety chocolate. Wispa Gold & Wispa Mint were next, followed in 2000 by Wispa Bite. By 2004 they were no more, but partly due to a public campaign, the plain bar was re-launched in 2007.  A limited run of Wipsa Gold was made in 2009.
