You were right Decent Citizen, it is NZ (previous thread). Sorry if you wanted to pop into Dunedin, it's a bit of a swim. Cadbury's (set up in 1930's, and now Cadbury/Pascall) here do all sorts of different flavoured chocky blocks that I don't think are made anywhere else(might be wrong). Caramello, Black Forest, Turkish Delight, Old Gold, Roast Almond, Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, Coconut Rough, Crunchie, Peppermint. I've put a bit of weight on since I lived here.

Zola - I remember Walnut Whips having two walnuts. And wasn't there a plain one and a milk one?
Upside Down Expat - I remember Coconut Rough here many years ago. I always wondered what happened to it.
And didn't they ruin KitKat when they changed the wrapper? It used to be nice breaking open the silver paper with your thumbnail.

Good point Rozzer - part of the joy of sweeties was the opening of the wrappers and I certainly feel that foil covered confectionary had a greater taste (probably fresher as opposed to sweatie plastic wrappers). Mars bars etc used to be wrapped in a wax covered paper and you could make origami objects out of your wrappers are you had feasted upon some delightful munchie.
The other benefits of using foil include reminding you where you have fillings and collecting for Blue Peter initiatives.

No Zola you did not get 2 in a bar, it was all one big bar. They were very very like walnut whips, and they came in a kinda dark brown/gold wrapper (may have been black). I'm 99% sure they were called Secret or Secrets and they were scrumy. I'm so intrigued now I might go and google it.
