Wham bar

Wham bar

A space-age adventure of pink, sticky, chewy bar laced with tongue-fizzing green pieces, an excellent buy at only 10p a slab! These have recently been relaunched by Tangerine confectionary, a British based sweets manufacturer behind the likes of Sherbet Fountains, Refreshers and Black Jacks. Mmmmm, what I'd give to work at that factory! The recipe was taken over by Tangerine after previous Wham manufacturer Millar McCowan went bust in 2011. According to Tangerine, this stick of amazement hit 30million sales a year at its peak. The new bars are priced at 20p and a mega one at 29p.

    i had one a few weeks ago and although they taste the same they did used to be much bigger ..and no it's not just because my hands were smaller! I i remember rightly Wham bars used to cost 20p. They also did something similar but it was green . Think they were called a slime bar??? Near me there was a road called Wham Lane! How cool would it have been to live there as a kid. lol

    I have only ever known the new Wham bars (thin and chewier apparently) and I really wanna try the original version! Does anyone know where I could get some? Or who makes them so I can go straight to the top! Haha. Thanks

    Was there not a bar called a stinger bar- similar in texture to wham bars- a bloody nightmare on the teeth, but inside, aah, heavenly, sour shertberty stuff to make the eyes water!!

    Wham bars were a bit dangerous when came to teeth/filling extraction. My most abiding memory of them though, was cycling along no-handed trying to open a Wham bar and then crashing straight into a wall. Broke a couple of toes.

    Was looking for them the other day and found a load of different flavours - they do a Bru flavour now which is just like the tangy Irun Bru bar they used to make - now that is fab. Found them at Keepitsweet.co.uk if anyone else wants to try these

    I was chewing on a Wham bar once when I was about 14 and I had bitten off a bit much, as I was chewing it removed one of my back teeth. The dentist was amazed that a healthy adult tooth roots and all came out so cleanly. The tooth that came out was huge, I did not realise teeth were that big. It stung a bit as well.
