80’s UK TV Advert – Cadburys Wispa feat Ruth Madoc and Simon Cadell, Hi Dee Hi

Cadbury_Logo1Wispa is a brand of chocolate bar manufactured by Cadbury UK. The bar was launched in 1981 as a trial version in North East England and with its success it was introduced nationally in 1983.  It was seen as a competitor to Rowntree’s Aero (now owned by Nestlé).  In 2003, as part of a relaunch of the Cadbury Dairy Milk brand, the Wispa brand was discontinued and the product relaunched as “Dairy Milk Bubbly”. As part of the relaunch, the product was reshaped as a standard molded bar (similar to other ‘Dairy Milk’ products) instead of a whole-bar count-line.  However, in 2007, helped by an internet campaign, the Wispa bar was relaunched, albeit for a “limited period”.   In October 2008 Wispa returned again to shops in the UK and Ireland due to the chocolate bar’s popularity during the previous limited period release.

A product known as Cadbury’s Wispa, resembling a moulded Dairy Milk bar with bubbles and with different packaging, is available in some other countries, including Romania.

1980s Cadburys Biarritz

cadburyIn 1824, John Cadbury began selling tea, coffee, and drinking chocolate, which he produced himself, at Bull Street in Birmingham, England. He later moved into the production of a variety of cocoa and drinking chocolates, made in a factory in Bridge Street and sold mainly to the wealthy because of the high cost of production. John Cadbury became a partner with his brother Benjamin and the company they formed was called ‘Cadbury Brothers of Birmingham’.

The brothers opened an office in London and in 1854 they received the Royal Warrant as manufacturers of chocolate and cocoa to Queen Victoria. In the 1850s the industry received a much needed boost, with the reduction in the high import taxes on cocoa, allowing chocolate to be more affordable to everybody.
