I've got a mystery choc bar I need identifying. My wife keeps going on about a chocolate bar similar in shape to a star bar, in an orange wrapper with lots of bubbles on it. It's not Picnic or lion bar. She says she thinks it had caramel in (but has been known to talk out of her a**e) but not sure about other ingredients. Not much to go on. Any ideas? Come on Heather, i'm timing you.:)

Thanks.

LOL i didn't think so but it was worth a try :)

Also did you know Star bar was formally known as a Nunch and then went on to be called 'Moro Peanut' could she remember one of these versions maybe?

Not wispa gold. We are talking from around 1979-1980.

Star Bar - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Starbar)

It's not Nunch and Moro is too late. She thinks it's late 70's.

Wife's gone on holiday to Ireland and she's found the answer. Her description wasn't that far off apart from the wrapper looks red. It's a bar called Catch. I don't remember this one myself but she's bringing some back so i'll see if the taste brings it back.
