Walnut Whip without the walnut? - What will be next? _97407225_bhw1t5

First it was Toblerone that shrank, followed by packets of Maltesers. But has the maker of the Walnut Whip gone too far in removing the famous nuts from a new version of the chocolate?

Nestle is launching three new varieties of the Walnut Whip - its oldest chocolate brand - without a nut on their peak.

The new Whips (without the Walnut prefix) will not replace the traditional walnut-topped version, which will still be available in a single pack year round - and a multi-pack at Christmas too.

"Walnut Whip remains on sale alongside our new vanilla, caramel and mint versions," a Nestle spokeswoman confirmed to the BBC.

"This means there is something for consumers wanting to try something new, as well as for long-standing fans of our century-old walnut product."

The new flavours reflected Nestle's desire "to extend the Whip range", she said.
However, importer Helen Graham said that strong global demand for walnuts, together with a poor crop in Chile last year and the falling value of the pound has led to a rise in prices of about a fifth.

She told the Guardian: "There was a shortage of crop and then there is the additional factor of exchange rates and rising transport costs as well."

The new products are being sold in packs of three with the walnut version remaining in its single packs.

What a stupid article. The 3 new varieties aren't called walnut whips, so why would they have a walnut on? 

You can still buy walnut whips.

I can't remember issuing an official death threat to you in the past, but you're pretty damn close now.

Bloke from a nut processing factory in Brum who supplied Nestle said they had to wash, sort and hand select (aesthetics?) walnuts for the top so the cost was in the fact that the process was labour-intensive rather than the price of walnuts, although the post referendum exchange rate hasn't helped.

Walnuts are absolutely fantastic for reducing naughty cholesterol BTW.
