The Lion bar candy consists of a filled wafer, caramel (32%) and crisp cereal (26%), covered in milk chocolate (42%).
Introduced by Alan Norman, it was in some areas known as Big Cat until the late 1990s.
When Nestlé acquired the brand in 1988, the recipe was changed, as it used to contain peanuts; the packaging was also changed.
