Secret Chocolate Bar

Secret Chocolate Bar

The Secret Chocolate bar was made by Nestle in the 80's and 90's and was one of the most delicious treats ever. It had a sort of bird's nest chocolate outer with a creamy mousse center similar to the inside of a Walnut Whip. They came in a white protective card sleeve and apparently had a gold wrapper with the word Secret written on it in purple.

The television advert featured an elegant lady sat on a train eating her Secret bar 'in secret' with the accompanying music "I see her face everywhere I go... Have you seen her?..."

Unfortunately the Secret Chocolate Bar was withdrawn from sale due to the high production costs and low volume of sales.

    Does anyone remember a chocolate shaped Panda which was filled with fondant and it had a foil wrapper round it?

    In the 80s I used to have chocoalate bars that had pictures of monsters or something on them, I think there was also a thundercats type one and when you bit into it it had red gooey stuff. Anyone remember these? I can't remember what they were called but I'd love to have one now ;)

    I loved this bar, it was sad to find out they had gone, it wasn't an overnight thing they just started to become harder to find till they were no longer anywhere. The picture doesn't do the bar justice because it looks like a solid bar, but it wasn't I've seen many comments refer to it as a bird's nest and I have to agree with that. It was like chocolate threads, I miss it and though I know there is an appeal to bring it back, I can understand that the production costs would be high given the "nest" it also needs extra packaging so the retail cost would push it out of the marketplace. Shame because it was lovely!

    Lovely to see all the comments here and reassure myself at long last that I'm not alone in my memories of the Secret bar – possibly my favourite ever chocolate bar, such a unique construction with its tubular 'bird's nest' of chocolate strands forming a cocoon for the hidden inner core of smooth truffley chocolate... amazing. One of those things I cherish memories of getting occasionally on lunchtime trips out of school during sixth form in the mid-late '90s, but which I didn't realise had disappeared until some time after the fact – I've had a craving for one since at least 2001, which can never be fulfilled! Can well imagine that producing such a complex and delicate thing, far more so than most chocolate bars, must have been an expensive and convoluted process – but please please Nestle, bring it back, even if only for a 'limited edition' run! Meanwhile, don't get me even started on Spira...
