How many syns are in a Wispa Gold?

A Wispa Gold is a Wispa with golden caramel with some bubbly chocolate removed to make room. There’s a big difference in terms of syns between these two different types.

The Wispa brand has been launched, discontinued and then re launched over and over again in the UK which is why you might think it’s something of a rarity, especially the Gold as it is not the default flavour. Sales aren’t as good as Cadbury’s other bars but it has gained a cult following.

The bubbles inside the Wispa have led to some massive advertising at the time and it is a competitor to the Aero, which is what makes the Wispa Gold unique.

But, how does it fare in terms of syns against other bars as well as the Aero and Wispa Chocolate? Let’s dig in.

Wispa Gold Syn Values

A Wispa Gold weighs 38.3 grams and contains 192 calories. This means a bar of Wispa Gold is worth 9.6 syns each with a syn per gram ratio of 0.25.

The single syn value of 9.6 puts it in the same realm as a Crunchie (9.3) and the standard Chocolate Aero (9.7).

How does the Wispa Gold compare to its rivals and is it worth the syns? Let’s dissect.

Are Wispa Golds worth the syns?

Wispa Gold is a chocolate bar with caramel so it is not a healthy treat, but we all know this hence why it has a syn value. But, what we do here is compare this bar’s syns per gram and compare with other chocolate bars to find which ones have the lowest syns per gram – which chocolate bars will give you more bang for your buck.

At 0.25 syns per gram the Wispa Gold is about average, nothing special. It is in the same ballpark as a Starbar, Dairy Milk Fruit & Nut and a KitKat Chunky. Slightly better alternatives are Picnics and Lions.

Perhaps importantly is the SynScore. A Wispa Gold scores 71% which is well above average when compared to ALL chocolate bars. This score is under the Twix (74%) and and bette than a normal KitKat.

But, there are several harder working bars out there which you can find on our list.
