expired Whittaker's Chocolate Blocks 200g-220g $3 (RRP $4.80) @ Woolworths

1260

Basically, a same deal as the popular one last month @ Big W. I think it is even better to be this price in Woolies as you can count them in to reach your targeted spend offer on your Rewards cards.

$3 each is also the lowest ever in Woolies shown on Pricehipster.

    For those who haven’t given Whittaker’s a go, I would highly recommend their chocolates. The first time I tried it was actually in a similar situation; I was in uni and wanted to impress my new tutorial group, starting a new course and all. I bought a Whittaker’s milk chocolate share pack, because it looked different and was on sale, which was nice on the uni budget. Since then I’ve never looked back.

    The milk chocolate is rich and ‘rustic’; initially I thought it tasted a little similar to Lindt’s milk chocolate, but it has a mild ‘roasted’ and more profound cocoa flavour. But the all-time favourite would have to be the peanut butter one, which is a pure delight. As opposed to Reece’s peanut butter cups, which are overly sweet and oily, Whittaker’s peanut butter is very pleasant; I introduced it to a few colleagues who were not fans of peanut butter, and their opinion has now changed.

    This may seem like a lot of words for a product costing $3, but you’ll understand when you’ve had it. I’m not the biggest fan of their dark chocolate range though, which hopefully provides some balance to this essay.

      What about the coconut one?

        And the ginger one, though not many stores seem to stock it now.

        I like the coconut one as well, but am taking a break from it having had a bit too much recently

          There is no such thing as too much Brian.

          This has been a paid for announcement by your conscience.

        I think it's the texture rather than the taste. The ginger one is outthink tbh.

        FYI the Whittaker’s coconut Chocolate is one of the healthiest chocolate blocks in the world with the lowest sugar content you can get without going to a dark option with more then 80% Cocoa.

        So for those wanting to reduce calories and sugar but love milk chocolate

        This is hand down the best option

        Oh and you can hardly taste the coconut flavor for those who hate a strong coconut taste.. its very similar to a nestle crunch bar in texture and taste

      I love the peanut butter one as well! It's amazing.

        Wow, I thought the peanut butter one was terrible. You can have what's left of mine, which is 95%. I won't buy this brand again.

        It's the only block I ever buy. My sister gets the other ones. I eat those too. She hates me.

      Have you tried the Whittaker premium blocks? They are amazing. As is the small blocks such as the coconut and dark chocolate with peanuts.

      I'm also a Whittaker's fan but milk chocolate is not actually chocolate - more like chocolate flavoured candy. As a libertarian, I think people should be free to chose their own poison but as a chocolate purist let's not fool ourselves that it's actually chocolate. I mean we don't call cordial juice, do we?

      lol I tried that, also buying coffee for the team. All but one and myself were the only ones who weren't lactose intol XD

  •  

    TBH, I'd prefer Maria Whittaker.

  •  

    OMG, I didn't know they had these in Australia. The coconut one is DELICIOUS.
    Do they stock these in SA woolies?

      Try IGA. They had more better range.

      Whittaker’s coconut Chocolate is one of the healthiest chocolate blocks in the world with the lowest sugar content you can get without going to a dark option with more then 80% Cocoa.

      Exuding the sugar plus artificial sweetener ones of course

      Check out BigW as well, they sell them. I've even had the hokey pokey from there.

    I was passing Big W one day and they had a table of chocolate going cheap so I stocked up.
    I couldn't eat it, had to take it back, ghastly stuff.
    Fairly sure this is the stuff, English, similarly named to a better known brand, being Whitman's.

    best was their cashew block… so good

  •  

    Anyone seen the Dark Ghana in Melbourne? Best dark chocolate on the planet.

  •  

    Do they have the buttermilk caramel white chocolate (caramilk flavour but better) at Woolies? I can never find it except at Big W

    I like their brand name matching their products - Waist-Taker

    i remember when the bigger 250gms ones used to be $2!

      I think they used to price themselves a lot more competitively while establishing the brand, but they went down in size and up in price a year or so ago. Problem is they are good quality so it's still easy to justify buying in comparison with cadbury IMO.

    •  

      I remember the good Ol 250g block days. Whittackes were one of the last to keep that size until they jumped on the 200g train with cadbury. It was good while it lasted.

    •  

      I think the smaller blocks are Aus only, in NZ it is still 250g and the chocolate is shaped differently (each cube is slightly taller), it is weird that the same block is not sold here.

    This is really nice chocolate. Similar to Lindt, slightly less creamy.

  •  

    Probably nicer than the recent Mars chocolates that are now made in China (M&M's bars, Snickers bars, etc)

  •  

    The coconut one is my favourite. Flavour reminds me of chocolate crackles.

    I also learned today it's one of the healthiest chocolate blocks in the world with the lowest sugar content you can get without going to a dark option with more then 80% Cocoa.

    What happened to their dark chocolate blocks? I can't find them in shops anymore.

  •  

    For those who have only ever experienced Cadbury chocolate since the late 90s, Whittakers is — to my palate — virtually identical to the Cadbury that Prof. Sumner Miller used to flog.
    In other words, when they were good.

    I still recall the newspaper article from the early Howard PM days in 97 or 98. It concerned ANZFA revisions to minimum key ingredient requirements for processed foods (fruit content in yoghurts, cocoa in chocolate etc).
    It gave Cadbury the green light to ruin their legacy.

    Went to check this out at woolies, they only had 4 blocks at my local Woden store

    Dark Chocolate 72% Peppermint 220g
    Milk Chocolate 33% Coconut 200g
    Milk Chocolate 33% Creamy 200g
    Dark Chocolate 62% Alomond 200g

    Selection definitely isn't as good as the bigw deal

    Back when Australia was a good country you could buy a quarter kilo of Whittaker's hazelnut for two bux.
