Woppa retro sweets

10
Posted 14th Jul
when i was a wee lad, about 35 years ago in the mid 80s i used to be addicted to Woppas.
they were cola flavoured chews, sold individually for 2p each.
they were in a red wrapper about the size of a fruit salad chew but thicker.
i cannot find any reference to these anywhere.
i have found a photo of a Woppa spearmint chew bar but thats it.
my Daughter thinks im experiencing the Mandela effect and they never existed
please help

Are they not called “Refreshers” now?
Can’t recall a cola flavour - but do remember them being so chewy it would give me jaw ache.

No, i think i know what you are thinking of
A few years back i found a small photo of a Woppa that im thinking of but ive no longer got it.
I would honestly happily pay £100 for a tub as they were just so tasty

They were definitely real and about 5 inches long. Mint and cola flavoured bars

I remember them so you’re definately not imagining them!

I remember them being 1p each, and agreed, they were tasty 😋
I remember them too but only because of the image that was posted. I probably enjoyed them too but really can't remember them that well
