Walnut snip: Nestlé cuts nut out of chocolate after prices surge - The Guardian

"Company says new Walnut Whips cater to people who do not like nuts, but it comes after UK prices rose 20% earlier this year.

Following shrinking Maltesers bags and Toblerones with bigger gaps, Nestlé has announced the “walnot whip”, launching the first nut-free versions of its oldest chocolate brand after the price of the key ingredient surged."

Who even likes the walnut on it? It's dry, bitter and ruins the whole thing. Stick a chocolate chunk or hazelnut on top instead

Same here, marks and Spencer's sometimes sell ones that don't have the nuts which are just as good , but walnuts yeuch

There will always be a nut on the end of a walnut whip.

Paragraph 3 of the linked article:

"Nestlé claims one Walnut Whip is eaten every two seconds in the UK."

I always throw the walnut away but have not had one in ages as they don't taste the same as they used to

is nothing sacred?

wow, always thought they were a bit lame.

Bring back the coffee walnut whip 😋 Minus the walnut though 🏼

People who don't like nuts shouldn't be buying it. I do eat the walnut and without it it'll just be a whip.

Me too. Only ever ate them if I got them in a selection box or something for Christmas.

Do you also pick the nuts out of topics?

They're still going to continue selling Walnut Whips, but will also be selling 3 new non-walnutty versions too.
First World Problems, eh?

Nestlé used to claim that dressing their baby product-sales representatives in nurse's uniforms, & sometimes stating they were "qualified", was a good idea too.
