Now Whittaker’s and Woolworths have finally shed light on the mystery - and it’s great news for fans.
Whittaker’s says they’re coming back to Woolworths - in a bigger and better block.
Speaking on their Facebook page, Whittakers said: ‘Rest assured we haven’t disappeared forever. We are currently updating our delicious range in Woolworths to our new generous and bigger 250g blocks. This might mean that some stores run out of our 200g stock temporarily, but you will see these 250g blocks start appearing on Woolworths shelves in the next few weeks.’
Adds a Woolworths spokesperson: ‘We’re always on the lookout for new and exciting product lines to inspire our chocolate-loving customers.
‘From later this week Whittakers chocolate will return to our shelves in a new 250g block. Full of the same delicious flavours our customers love, now there is even deliciousness to share with fellow chocolate lovers.’
It’s all great news for fans, who are excited by the development.
‘So you're bringing your chocolates back to Woolies? I was so disappointed seeing the empty space where my beloved Whittakers is meant to be. 😭’ said one.
Added another: ‘Was about to boycott Woolworths.’
Yep, there's no need for that!
