960

Starts Wednesday Nov 21. Enjoy :)

Wiki: Weis is an Australian brand, owned by Unilever that produces frozen ice confectionery and frozen fruit desserts. They are most well known for their bar shaped fruit ice creams known as Weis Bars. They are sold at most Australian milk bars and supermarkets and in boxes of eight mini bars or four regular-sized bars at most supermarkets. The Weis manufacturing plant is located in Toowoomba, Queensland with the sales and marketing office in Toowong, Queensland.

The original Weis Fruito Bar was developed by Les Weis in 1957 and was sold from his own corner store in Toowoomba. The Weis Fruito Bar contains pineapple, banana and passion fruit. The most popular bar is the Mango & Cream which launched in 1959.

In January 2016, Weis planned a successful push into the Chinese market. The Toowoomba company has exported Weis bars to Japan for more than 20 years and close to 30% of its business is now outside Australia. Until August 2017, Weis was a privately owned Australian company. The company was owned and operated by a second generation of the Weis family until they sold it to the Anglo-Dutch firm, Unilever.

        Or drops, hey?

  •  

    Unilever have a bad habit of changing ingredients not long after buying out companies, thus destroying products.

    Has Weis fallen to this doom or is still edible?

    •  

      Agree with that, and it’s the same pattern with all big corporations. Gaytimes for example are tiny now compared to what they used to be in “the old days”. But from what I can tell, Weis bars are still good.

        On the other hand, you can buy a 1.25L tub instead.

        Just stick an oversized popsicle stick in it and you're good to go.

          Are we talking about Gaytime or Weis bars now? Cos Weis Sorbet in a tub is good stuff. Gaytime in a tub is not.

          •  

            @ak47wong: Was talking about Gaytime, but to be honest I've never tried it in the tub. Disappointing to hear it's not very good.

            Since it's still 30C at 7pm here in Melbourne though I'm wandering up to the servo to overpay for a gaytime now too.

            @ak47wong: Gaytime on a stick doesn't taste as good as I remember it. Something about the honeycomb parts taste off.

            •  

              @lostn: yesss i very much remember this last time i had one

      •  

        I got negg'ed for saying that Gaytimes were not as I remembered. THIS

        Now I know why Gaytimes went downhill, news to me about Weis. $5 bet Unilever screw it…eventually!..

    I remember getting a free mango Weis bar in economy on a plane and feeling like I was in first class for just a few seconds.

    I remember being in first class and shouting who stole my Wei
    s bar

    On the wikipedia page now they've removed "with the sales and marketing office in Toowong, Queensland" because sales and marketing is now done by Unilever.

    Someone probably needs to fix "is an Australian brand" to "was an Australian brand" too

    Grew up on these! Yum😋

    Even helped sell these delicious Mango treats in Tokyo.
    It was a hot summer, so was looking to keep cool.

    Discovered Kaldi Coffee Farm stores had bought an enormous supply of these bars. Price was cheaper than sold individually in shops here. But locals did not know them, so almost none were being sold.

    Solution - this Foreigner would stand out the front of the store eating them. "If the strange Foreigner likes it - it must be good."

    Free Weis bars on a hot day - yes please! So I showed how much I really enjoyed them, offered samples & store sold plenty.

    Will enjoy them again at this price👍

      How many did you eat?

      •  

        Not as many as you'd think.
        Popped in when it got too hot, did my eating demo, then back to exploring Tokyo. (Repeat)
