Splicer Bars

Splicer Bars came out in the mid 1980s and were fruit-flavoured and multi-coloured twisted candy bars which were really chewy. The advert featured a policeman and various other people biting into a splicer bar and it turned them all multi-coloured! Ace! They tasted soft but chewy...

I loved these, must have ate at least 2-3 bars a week. I think I use to eat them one colour at a time and I think you could pull them apart but not sure long time ago.

At last - other Splicer fans. No-one else I know remembers them which, I guess, explains why they stopped making them.

I think of them a lot.....
Anytime a mention them to anyone no one else remembers them and i was beginning to think they were just a sweet dream.

OMG. They were like Opel Fruits rolled into a sausage shape of the same flavour, then the four sausages were twisted together and ... heh presto ... I give you, the Splicer Bar!!!

The jingle went:

"Splicer, is nicer
it's sweet everytime.
Strawberry and Orange, with Lemon and Lime.
Bite it, you'll like it
And soon you will see.
Splicer, is nicer.
From Nestle Rowntree."

I still remember the jingle!


I thought I was the only person left alive who remembered them! Ha to everyone who thought I was mad!!!

Bring back the Splicers!

Blast from the past!! Yes they were sort of pastel coloured and fruity - not thought about them in 30 yrs!

I remember them well - but by another name 'striper'. As I remember from the ad they were also at a wedding and they all turned coloured as they bit in the bars. Do you know why they had two names?
