Toblerone Brouhaha + 13 Toblerone-inspired Recipes So You Can #MoveOn and #LiveWithIt

Mondelēz International, US confectionery company and owner of the chocolate in question, redesigned Toblerone’s iconic Swiss chocolate bar and the result was a brouhaha in social media. So they’ve decided to widen the gap between the peaks to reduce the weight of the Toblerone bars. Hmmm… What the company perceived as a cost-saving initiative (that has nothing to do with Brexit), was met with humor and disappointment from fans.

Toblerone enlightened us about the matter:

A little bit of history I’ve unearthed.

1908. Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann (Theodor Tobler’s cousin) invented a unique chocolate bar, Toblerone! Toblerone’s special recipe, triangular shape and instantly recognisable logo made it distinct.

1908. Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann (Theodor Tobler’s cousin) invented a unique chocolate bar, Toblerone! Toblerone’s special recipe, triangular shape and instantly recognisable logo made it distinct. “Toblerone” is a play on the names “Tobler” and “Torrone”, the Italian word for honey and almond nougat.

While we understand Toblerone’s side of the story, we can’t help but poke fun at the chocolate’s fate.

Finally, we have BBC Business to explain this shrinkflation:

And as promised, here are 13 recipes to savor our beloved Toblerone. Let’s just enjoy our weekend after making a mess in the kitchen? 😉
