    Another classic!!! Loved the WIG WAG. Now, the closest thing to it is the Curly Wurly. Can get it in Winnipeg at the Forks in the Candy Train!!!

    Didn't this used to have a cowboy on it? Cadbury's Curly Wurly is close but much thinner. I just picked some up at Freak Lunchbox.

    No wonder I could never find this, I was calling it a Wig Wam bar!! I never got to have one, but always dreamed I would one day........ :(

    my son's gf just came back from the UK this morning and she brought back a bulk pack of curly wurly bars. when I opened it, I remembered eating these as a kid here in Canada, but the name wasn't familiar. I racked my brain trying to remember the name, and wig wag came to mind. I asked my wife if she remembered that name, and she didn't. but I was right!
    now if only I could get my hands on a pound or 2 of Maple Buds, I'd be in heaven.. lol

    Man I loved these, I would buy 5 of them for 50 cents (10 cents a piece) then they went up to 25 cents each. My all time favourite was the Snack Bar and the $100,000 dollar bar, the latter was only on the shelves for a couple of years - seems everything I like best gets discontinued. Ate a ton of soap candy as a kid too - would buy it at the Woodward's candy counter which had everything you could possibly imagine - candy and chocolate heaven it was. Woodward's had the best malt and hot dog bar and their deli was the best ever. Walking down memory lane is making me hungry.

    You can buy the British version of these, called Curly Wurly, at the Old Tyme Confection shop in Barrie, Ontario. I saw them yesterday and nearly fainted! They're pricy, though, at $2.99 each.

    You can buy the British version, "Curly Wurly" at the video store in Wasaga Beach (across from Foodland) for the regular price of a chocolate bar.
