Walnut Whip: Chocolate of the Week #6

An old-school classic, loved by kids and their grandparents alike.  Indulgent vanilla fondant filling lies within a rich whirl of Nestlé milk chocolate, topped off with a whole walnut. Launched in 1910, this is Nestlé’s oldest product and its popularity shows no sign of waning – a million walnuts a week are used in the production of Walnut Whips, and one is eaten every two seconds in Britain!

An interesting aside – Walnut Whip’ is Cockney rhyming slang for ‘kip’, meaning sleep.

Available from ‘Carry On Tea & Sympathy’, our produce store next door, for only $2 a go. Well worth a try!
