I'm from Canada and the Wig Wag chocolate bars were as you described, long, pretzel like and very messy to eat... they are by Cadbury, and now, if you can get them, they are called Curly Wurly's... they originated in the United Kingdom... they are expensive to purchase now as they are imported... and they are much smaller than "three hands high"

Actually, the Curly Whirly (or Wurley?) bar is a close approximation of a Wig Wag bar, but there are differences. The CW is much shorter than a WW, and the caramel/toffee is firmer/chewier (so the chocolate coating does not flake off as easily), but the braided shape is identical. As for taste, well it has been maybe 25 yrs since I have had a Wig Wag bar but the Curly Whirly is very tasty! You can easily get them at The Candy Bouquet on Water St in St. John's, Newfoundland. About $1.50 each. Yum!
