Would you choose a Walnut Whip without the nut?

There’s a new Walnut Whip without the walnut and no one can believe it’s happening

In a confusing world, some things thankfully remain constant: like tea always making you feel better, or the delicious nutty crunch of a Walnut Whip.

However, get ready for your world to be turned upside down, because the Walnut Whip is losing the walnut.

For the uninitiated, the treat is milk chocolate filled with vanilla fondant and topped with a nut. The new product – called, ingeniously, the Whip – has got rid of one of the core aspects of the chocolate bar.

As you can imagine, the news has taken Twitter by storm. A Walnut Whip without the nut? What kind of madness is this?

Launched in 1910 the Walnut Whip is Nestlé’s oldest brand, so you can understand why people might have strong feelings over any change to the treat they know and love.

Before you get too angry, though, it doesn’t mean the Walnut Whip has been altered forever. Rather, Nestlé is launching a range of three flavours (Delicate Vanilla, Delicious Caramel and Delightful Mint), which give chocolate lovers the option of enjoying a nut-less Whip.

However, it doesn’t look like many people will be abandoning the original chocolate any time soon.

But there are those who can’t see why this has become such a Twitterstorm.

If you think about it, it’s actually a great release for people with nut allergies. Those who are keen to try the new flavours will be able to sample vanilla and caramel from this week, with the mint edition following in September.

All those resistant to change can stick to the original.

What a re your views? Are you a Walnut Whip fan? What brand do you like? How do you feel about a nutless Walnut Whip? If you could choose a new flavour what would it be?

Definitely not. In fact, I love the walnut so much I add one of my own to the filling.

I usually don't eat the nut so it would be wasted so yes I would have a walnut (less) whip and if it's a matter of choice why not ?

Not if walnut is in the name then find there's no nut! Yes to Whip in any flavour.

Surly that's just a whip. I would buy it though, love the chocolate, not keen on the nut.

The worlds gone mad! How on earth can a Walnut whip be a Walnut Whip if its a chocolate bar and has not got a Walnut? GB is really going to the dogs. Next we will have pork pies made of Cauliflower...or Rolls Royces looking like Trebants (East German Rolls Royce!). Enough said...I shall get back to my afternoon cuppa!

I still miss the walnut which used to be at the bottom so would hate to lose the top one as well, also the chocolate shell used to be more like piped chocolate I preferred that.

The coffee flavoured walnut whip was the best one, walnut whip without the walnut is not right

Would you drink a beer with no head on it.
Would you accept an irish coffee without the whisky.
Could you eat scones without Jam & cream.
Well neither could I or would I.
Just another example of big business penny pinching on products.

I would eat one or 2 or 3 but they are not walnut whips if they don't have a walnut on.

I remember when they were Duncan's walnut whip. There was a walnut at the bottom too! Ridiculous idea!

Where have all the coffee AND walnut whips gone? Me and my dad's favourite. Have your whips, but leave the walnut whips alone!

It ain't the same without the walnut that is what made this lovely chocolate treat. The M & S ones though are a great alternative. Yummy

They need the extra crunchy, nutty texture, if anything add more walnuts ie reinstate the one in the base as well as the one on top!

I don't like walnuts so always take them off, but would love them to bring back the coffee flavour without the walnut 🙂

It's the nut that makes this chocolate treat different, otherwise it's just chocolate with a flavoured fondant. Boring.
They should put the nut back inside the whip and return it to its original size.

I would rather them bring back the coffee flavour and leave the walnut with it, and bring back the walnut that used to hide in the base!

I used to love walnut whips. Hadn't had one for years then suddenly I treated myself to one. Ooh love them.
Always take the walnut off, cause I don't like walnuts.
So, yes, would definitely buy with no walnut on.
