    Whatever happened to those lush Minstrel-like sweets called Vice Versas?​


    Vice Versas were produced by Nestl√© and were introduced in 1991. They were the same shape and size as Minstrels, but were far more exciting to eat. You had white-shelled ones with milk chocolate inside and chocolate coloured shelled ones with white chocolate inside. They really were dreamy!​


    These little bubbles of yum were later discontinued, and the nation were deprived from their tastiness.​


    It was then in 2004 that joy hit us once more when Vice Versas were relaunched! However, within a year they were once again whipped from our shelves. Every Vice Versa addict on the planet was left asking the question WHY?​


    Nestl√© released this statement on their website about Vice Versas and their other products that have been discontinued:​


    "We are sorry to inform you that the products have been withdrawn from our range due to the high cost of production and the relatively low level of sales. We would like to assure you that the decision to withdraw any product is reached only with great reluctance and we regret any disappointment this product's absence has caused you."

    up until reading this thread i had forgotten how good they were, i shovelled them down as a kid, along with tangy toms, petrified prawns and the aptly named onion rings...

    the cravings have kicked in again now :sadlike:

    there is even a petition to bring them back so it cant be just me...lets get as.net behind it
