OK, we don't mean to alarm anyone, but Nestle's new range of Walnut Whips are missing one major ingredient.

The confectionery company sparked outrage today as it announced the beloved chocolate treat has lost its signature topping.

The new-look product, simply called 'Whip', is available in three flavours; Delicate Vanilla, Delicious Caramel and Delightful Mint.

Needless to say, people are not happy:

However, all is not lost. 

Fans will be glad to know that this is not the end of the Walnut Whip as we know it.

The beloved treat will still be available, alongside the three new flavours.

According to The Irish Times, Alison Clinton, the brand manager of chocolate classics at Nestlé UK and Ireland, said: “These new products will offer consumers more choice, enabling them to share their favourite products with their family and friends.”

A spokeswoman for Nestlé told the BBC: "Walnut Whip remains on sale alongside our new vanilla, caramel and mint versions.

"This means there is something for consumers wanting to try something new, as well as for long-standing fans of our century-old walnut product."

Crisis averted.


It’s rare a day passes when we’re not exposed to some form of narrative highlighting the dangers associated with excessive sugar consumption.

Whether it comes in the form of a medical study or via a clean eating blog post, society is becoming more and more aware of the dangers, and attempting to tailor their nutritional plans in accordance with guidelines.

And yet, curtailing sugar intake is often easier said than done, with various products positively heaving under the weight of hidden sugars.

With that in mind, it’s refreshing to know that Nestlé have spent two years researching and developing recipes which tap into the consumer’s concerns.

This week, Nestlé’s Rowntree’s unveiled brand new 30% less sugar versions of two of its best-selling products; Rowntree’s Fruit Pastilles and Rowntree’s Randoms.

Offered alongside the existing, classic products, the new recipes contain less sugar and more fibre content in addition to remaining free of artificial flavours, colours and sweeteners.

Acknowledging the current narrative, CEO Fiona Kendrick said: “We are delighted that our innovation gives consumers the option of a significantly reduced sugar version of both Fruit Pastilles and Randoms.

"And, as consumers make the switch to the less sugar version, it can help deliver a reduction in the amount of sugar consumed overall.”

“Confectionery can play as much of a part in the efforts to reduce sugar and tackle obesity in the UK and Ireland as any other category and, as we’re demonstrating, we’ll take every opportunity to innovate and reformulate to improve our products.”

As we can’t imagine life without a sweet fix, this news is the stuff dreams are made of.


Lads, there's nothing better than cereal, right?

Just heap a load into a bowl and that's your morning meal covered (or your hangover meal in college when you were too broke to get a chipper).

Well, for this week only, a cereal pick'n'mix shop has opened in Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and we are so God damn excited.

Nestle are the creators of this divine invention and from today until Sunday, the shopping centre will have the Aisle of Wonder open to the public.

If you can't guess already, we're pretty happy about this pop-up, it's just a pity it isn't staying around for longer.


Any coffee lovers will know the feeling of wishing your coffee buzz could last all day. Well, as it turns out, we might not have to wait much longer.

Nestlé, the makers of our favourite KitKats, is developing a marvellous type of coffee that will keep your buzz going all day long. Hurrah!

An all-day caffeine high is no doubt alluring, especially to those who want to wave caffeine crashes goodbye. 

According to the brand, the new beverage is currently being developed by scientists at the company's labs in Switzerland, in conjunction with Swiss technical university École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL).

The new coffee just simply releases caffeine slower than your average latte. Instead of giving you the caffeine all at once, this will be set free in dribs and drabs to keep you going all day long.

EPFL explained that it is still battling over a few hurdles, but keep spirits high as it's nearly there. 


Most of us will admit to feeding our animals scraps under the table or letting them climb onto the couch for a cuddle.

But one thing that is almost never shared by an animal and a human is a romantic meal for two. Until now, that is. 

As part of a (rather strange) promotional campaign for Mon Petit cat food, Nestlé is offering an unique catering service – complete with a private chef – for you and your cat. 

The chef will turn up to your door and whip up a four-course meal for you and your furry feline.


Now, the chef won't make the same meal for you and your pet (thank god), but the meal will consist of the same foods. 

For the starter, the cat will be served a pouch of Mon Petit maguro (tuna) and a similar fish dish garnished with vegetables will be served to the human. 

Next, they move onto the soup – Mon Petit crab and sardines will be given to the feline and a delicious bowl of crab, scallops and sardine soup for the owner. 

And then guests can prepare to feast on the main course, as Mon Petit will serve roast chicken in a vegetable sauce for the kitty and a human version of the dish for the owner. 

The catering service costs a massive €170, but good news (or bad, whatever you're into) is that the service is only available in Japan. 

We're not quite sure whether this idea is crazy or brilliant, but one thing's for sure, the cat will probably have a tummy ache afterwards.
