      Christmas treat

      A toblerone is a triangular sweet joined at the base of each triangle. Each section has a letter moulded into it which spells out toblerone, quite ingenious really.

      Most chocolate comes in the normal boring shape of a rectangle bar, not toblerone, it is a triangle....total genius! No-one can forget the shape, there is no other snack like it, what an amazing idea to be remembered.

      After the success of the large version, they then brought out a smaller, pocket size version, another amazingly smart move. The smaller version is priced according to other sweet prices whereas the larger version at £5 is a little expensive. For me at that price it is a Christmas treat rather than an everyday snack.

      They have brought out other options, dark chocolate one, one with fruit!! I find that the original with its chunks of nougat and almond is already perfect and haven't wanted to try the other ones. I might like them and the idea of betraying the original isn't something I can see myself doing. Sorry, but I will ever remain faithful the first version. If its not broken don't try to fix it!!

      I have used Toblerones in chocolate fondues that I have had in the past, melt it with cream and normal chocolate and it is to die for, dip chunks of banana and strawberry etc into it, pure heaven.

      ~~Toblerone~~

      Toblerone is produced by a company called Craft Foods and the product is available in many different countries they also have many different products in the Toblerone range. This review will focus on the normal milk chocolate "original" Toblerone. However, other products in the range are Toblerone fruit and nut, Toblerone dark, Toblerone white, Toblerone honeycomb and Toblerone tobelle. Toblerone is a patented product so it cannot be recreated by other companies, the company was incredibly smart to do as the product is unique and they are the only company that can get profit from such as good idea.

      The company named Toblerone after "Tobler" the family name of the people who created the product and "torrone" which is the Italian word for nougat (one of the main ingredients in Toblerone). There have been ideas on how Toblerone got the shape that it is so well known for, the bar is made up of pyramid pieces of chocolate and people assumed that the shape was because the manufactures home town was full of mountainous areas and the shapes represented the mountain peaks. However, according to the product website the company confirm that Toblerone is sexier than people originally thought. Well chocolate is said to be an aphrodisiac, right? Well the design is one to keep a man's thoughts running next time a bar of Toblerone is gifted to them at Christmas. Why, you say? Well the design of the chocolate bar is based on a sensual dance performed by dancers in France in which at the end of the show they line up in their red and cream frills and form a "shapely pyramid."

      The Toblerone bar is made up of Swiss chocolate, honey and almond nougat. The product is made in Switzerland so you know the quality of chocolate is going to be excellent. I love Swiss chocolate so when I was bought a bar of this as a gift I was delighted and couldn't wait to tuck in. The chocolate melts in your mouth and you get left with tasty almond nougat which creates a delicious sensation in my mouth. This chocolate is definitely sexy in taste and in the concept. It's a shame the sexiness does not continue to the packaging! The packaging is a mundane pyramid shaped box with a yellow (what's sexy about yellow?) background and plain block writing which shows the product name. I think the idea of the foil surrounding the chocolate picks up the sexy theme nicely as it feels naughty undressing the chocolate and consuming the creamy delicious goods which lie within. If I could change the packaging to make it live up to its erotic expectations I would use French style font with swirls and have the writing in a more exuberant red to make the writing entice consumers.

      The price ranges on the size of the bar you purchase in my eyes bigger is better, (this review is getting slightly controversial!) For a 100g bar you can expect to pay between £1.00 and £1.30, they are available at most supermarkets and you can occasionally find them in your local pound shop (cheap and sexy what could be better!).

      Would I recommend this product? Definatley its one for the whole family or a love affair for one that's both moral and more pleasurable!

        Lovely Swiss Chocolate

        This brand of chocolate is very unique and stands out on the shelves not just because of the shape of it's box but also because of it's beautiful design and taste. A 100g block or strip of this can often be found on all sorts of promotional offers and currently is priced at £1.20 on the Tesco website. Inside the famous packaging you will find a bar of the chocolate which can be broken down in to seperate parts in the form of triangular pyramid shaped pieces. This strip when taken out of the box is wrapped in thin foil.

        I am not always a big lover of continental chocolate and love products from Cadbury or Nestle in general but the Toblerone a product of Switzerland tastes great and is quite milky, reminding me somewhat of the Milka brand in the purple wrappers with the cow on. I think the bar is divided in to parts so you can break a few pieces off and then save the rest for later or another day, this is pretty much impossible for me as I can easily just eat one of these in a single sitting.

        When you break of a piece you can see that it contains little white flecks which must be the almond nougat and with the honey as well this really is a nicely sweet confectionery item which can be enjoyed by yourself but in my opinion is always a great gift for someone as it doe have a luxury feel to it. It is wonderful but if you are on a diet this is not going to help you as 100g contains 29g of fat and 525 calories but may be if you can eat one piece at a time this would be good as a treat or reward type item for you but unfortunately I do not fall in to that category, by record on self control is not very good.

        This is a lovely product to eat but due to the nougat and honey it is a little chewy and sticky to do so and if you have eaten one you will be aware of what I mean but this does not spoil it in anyway but just adds to the character of the item and the experience of consuming it.

          Best chocolate treat! Recommended for everybody.

          *DESCRIPTION OF TOBLERONE*
          The description of Toblerone above this review already tells you the facts of where its from, how its made, when it was made etc. so i shan't go into all that detail. I'll skip to the main interesting bit....


          *MY EXPERIENCE*
          I am currently munching on the white chocolate version of Toblerone, and seeming I am enjoying it so much, I thought a review should be written about it in order to tell readers how good it truly is. I brought this current one in the airport through duty free. It was on offer - 3 for 2 on all large Toblerones of any flavor for a total of £13.00.

          The Swiss chocolate with honey and almond nougat is most popular for it's triangular size. It is one of my favorite chocolates, although I am fussy with my chocolate as I only like Dairy Milk, this comes as an exception to my taste buds. I was near enough brought up on this tasty treat as both my parents are huge fans, and were always buying it. It was commonly know in my family tradition to give it as part of a birthday present (especially to my dad).

          As you put a single triangle piece into your mouth, it immediately starts to melt on your tongue. The chewy bits of nougat last until all the chocolate has completely melted and leave you chewing on them (what I class as the best part). The honey and almond pieces in the chocolate give it a crunchy texture, with a nutty sweet taste.

          It is also great melted in a saucepan and mixed with 'Rice Krispies' to make crispy cakes. Before now, I have also made brownies using a whole large Toblerone - something that should definitely be attempted by readers of this review also. A treat to the tastebuds!

          Toblerone offer a range of chocolates such as : Swiss White Chocolate with honey and almond nougat, Fruit and Nut, Milk Swiss Chocolate with honey and almond nougat and also Dark Swiss Chocolate with honey and almond nougat. All of which are delicious.


          *INGREDIENTS*
          Sugar, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, honey (3%), almonds (1.6%), emulsifier (soya lecithin), egg white, flavoring (vanillin).


          *RECOMMENDED?*
          Definitely!! The best treat your mouth and stomach will experience.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          Once you have one triangle you want more and more! Unique taste ; unique shape!

          I have been a lover of Toblerone ever since i can remember; i even remember the old adverts with the song! "Toblerone...out on its own....triangular chocolate...that's toblerone"! I am sure most people will be aware that Toblerone comes from Switzerland (the packets also have pictures of mountains on them). The Toblerone bar was actually invented in 1908, although the 'Tobler' family had been making chocolate products since about 1868.

          I adore Toblerone and its triangular chocolate. The taste is both chocolaty and nutty, also with the tiny almond nougat bits. A word of warning to those with any problems with gums/teeth; the nougaty bits can and do, get stuck in your teeth! This ruins the enjoyment slightly. I sometimes buy one of the larger size bars, which you can get in the £1 shop. But i also frequently buy the smaller size bars. Unfortunately they have shrunk in size! You can currently get 3 35g packets for £1.00 in iceland. Its not a bad buy but they don't last long! I don't recommend the very large bars are kept in the fridge; trying to eat the large triangles straight from the fridge is like chewing your way through rock! You at least need to let the large triangles warm up slightly before eating or you might break your teeth!

          Due to the small size of these particular Toblerone; they only contain around 185kcal. This is less than many other chocolate bars.

          I have seen Toblerone in the UK in the following flavours;the original (milk chocolate with honey and almond nougat), a white chocolate version, a dark chocolate version and a milk chocolate version containing raisins. I have also seen Toblerone 'Tobelle' which i think is thinner triangles. I havn't actually tried any of the other versions available. The reason being is that I don't think i would like them (other than the Tobelle). The idea of dark chocolate, white chocolate and especially Toblerone with raisins just doesn't appeal to my taste buds in regard to the traditional Toblerone. However, other people may wish to try them out; perhaps a good idea would be to buy them if you see them on special offer.

          Now they certainly can't be classed as a healthy snack and overall i wouldn't really recommend them for younger children particularly re the stickiness of the nougat. However, they really are great tasting and the only way i shall probably stop eating them is if i have false teeth!

          Toblerone

          The triangle chocolate

          Whenever anyone goes on holiday through duty free the joke always used to be that they would bring back a Toblerone chocolate for you as they always sell them in duty free, well this may be the joke but there is no joking about the quality of this chocolate.

          Toblerone is a Swiss Milk chocolate with honey and almond nougat and, in my opinion is absolutely delicious. According to an article I read, Toblerone was created by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland in 1908. The article goes on to say that apparently, the triangular shape of the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps is commonly believed to have given Theodor Tobler his inspiration for the shape of Toblerone. However, according to Theodor's sons, the triangular shape originates from a pyramid shape that dancers at the Folies Bergères created as the finale of a show that Theodor saw.

          Whatever the origin of the triangle I think this gives the chocolate something different and unique. The triangle bits are all joined together by a bit of chocolate at the bottom and so to break off just one piece you have to snap it off from the rest of the chocolate bar. The chocolate is incredibly thick and I really love this aspect of it. Thick chocolate always is really nice and fun to bite into and this is no exception. The chocolate is covered with tin foil in the box to give it extra freshness which I like and then outside of it it is packaged in a cardboard box which is perfect for storing the chocolate in if you only have a triangle or two at a time.

          The thickness is great but it is the honey and almond nougat pieces that really give it it's amazing texture and flavour. The bits are in little pieces dispersed evenly throughout the chocolate bar so in each bite you get a lovely sweet, slightly sticky on your teeth flavour and ingredient which is great. The taste is unlike any other and of very good quality to me.

          Per 25g serving there are 132 calories which is quite a lot but if you only have this as a treat now and again when someone goes on holiday it is not too bad!

            A bite sized bar with a unique taste

            Toblerone 35g is a pocket sized version of a chocolate bar that you would usually expect to see as a novelty bar at Christmas.

            The Swiss chocolate with honey and almond nougat has a unique flavour that won't be to everyone's taste. This chocolate lies somewhere between crumbly and creamy being neither one nor the other, it is also very sweet and the nougat does stick to your teeth in a less than pleasant way. I also find that the chocolate leaves a strange almondy aftertaste in your mouth that takes a little getting used to.

            Toblerone chocolate is unusually hard and I have often found that the larger bars are almost impossible to eat due to this but in the 35g bar this is not a problem as the triangular sections are perfectly bite sized and also thin enough to be easy to bite through.

            So my opinion would be that the Toblerone chocolate won't be to everyone's taste. If like me you're a fan of Cadbury or Galaxy you probably won't want to run out and buy a bar. However making the bar bite sized is a distinct improvement that makes the eating experience much more pleasant.

              Disadvantages

              Highly recommend as an occasional treat

              Toblerone is a chocolate bar, consisting of pyramid shaped squares of milk chocolate with nougat, almonds and honey. Invented in 1908 It is now produced and marketed by Kraft foods (the largest confectionary manufacturers in the Us) though it was introduced and owned by Jacobs Suchard until 1990. As well as the original toblerone bars, there is also toblerone fruit and nut, tinies, honeycomb crisp and toblerone dark. Expect to pay around £1 for 100 grams or £3.90 for a box of tinies.

              It is impossible to mistake toblerone for anything else due to the very distinctive long triangular cardboard packet, with toblerone stamped across the front in red. Interestingly, there is a picture of the Matterhorn at one end of the package (it is believed the Matterhorn gave the inspiration for the shape of the bar). If you look closely, an image of a bear can be seen in the mountain. Store toblerone in a cool dark place, or the fridge in hot weather, and it should keep for several months

              Per 100 grams toblerone contains 525 calories, 60 grams of carbohydrate and 29 grams of fat. As with any chocolate bar, this is not the healthiest of options. However, as an occasional treat it's absolutely fine.

              Toblerone has a peculiarly rich, god quality taste to it which justifies the somewhat expensive price. The honey adds sweetness and smoothness to the chocolate, while the almond gives a different taste and texture and stops the eating experience from becoming too 'samey'. The nougat is very much the icing on the cake, providing a chewy sweetness that is simply exquisite.

              Toblerone - a miniature mountain of milk chocolate, nougat and almonds.

              Toblerone was created by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland in 1908. The Tobler Company remained independent for many years, but since 1990, Kraft have been the producers of Toblerone.

              Toblerone is a very distinctively shaped chocolate bar and is easily spotted on the supermarket shelf. It comes in a long triangular shaped cardboard box, which is golden yellow in colour. 'Toblerone' is printed in red capitals along the sides and there is a picture of the Matterhorn mountain alongside the name.

              Opening one end, you find that the chocolate is covered in silver foil, which when opened reveals a row of milk chocolate, triangular chunks. This chocolate smells very sweet and you can clearly see pieces of nougat through it. Printed along the side of the chocolate is the word 'Toblerone'.

              This really is the most delicious, creamy milk chocolate. It is sweet and smooth and would definitely melt in your mouth quickly, if not for the other yummy ingredients. Biting into a chunk of Toblerone, you come across the pieces of nougat which are sweet and chewy. You are also met with almonds, which give that extra bite and crunch to this chocolate bar.
              When mixed together, you get the most amazing, sweet, creamy, chewy and crunchy bar ever and the flavours and textures work perfectly together. I do tend to only eat two or three pieces at a time, as I do find it filling and a little sickly - but it's only sickly if I eat too much of it!

              *Nutritional Value Per 35g Bar*

              Energy - 184 kcal
              Protein - 1.9g
              Carbohydrate - 21.0g

              Sodium - 0.02g
              Salt Equivalent - 0.05g

              This product contains eggs, milk, almonds, soya/soybeans. It is suitable for vegetarians.

              Toblerone is available from Tesco in the following:

              100g bar - £1.08
              400g bar - £3.32
              4 x 35g bar multipack - £1.25

              This really is a gorgeous bar of chocolate and makes a lovely change from the everyday chocolate snack. I hadn't however, realised just how high in calories it was or how unhealthy it was either.
              Thankfully it is not something I eat on a regular basis and will definitely be keeping it as an extra special treat from now on!

              If you are looking for a chocolate snack, that is just that extra bit special, you can't go far wrong with a Toblerone.

              I would be happy to recommend this and award it 5 stars.

                Try one

                I will never forget being given my first large Toblerone when a family member came back from a holiday when I was a child. The unusual triangular shape was too big for my mouth and I ended up spending ages trying to bite the pointy bit off the top before attempting to bite off the bottom part of the chunk. Oh how things have changed (me not the chocolate).

                I paid 35p for a 35g bar in my local discount store but you can get 100g ones for just over a pound and 400g big bars (the ones from my childhood memories) for about £3.30. I bought the original bar but you can buy it with dark chocolate, white chocolate, fruit and nut and honeycomb crisp.

                The bar itself is made with Swiss milk chocolate with honey and almond nougat. They contain egg whites, lactose, milk fat, milk powder, almonds and soya lecithins so are not suitable for anyone with allergies to these ingredients.

                Ingredients:
                Sugar, Cocoa Butter, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Mass, Lactose, Honey (3%), Milk Fat, Almond (1.6%), Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Glucose Syrup, Egg White, Flavouring (Vanillin).

                The packaging on the original bar is yellowy beige in colour with red writing. A 35g bar will give you 184 kcals, 1.9g of protein, 21.0g of carbohydrates and 10g of fat so they are not the healthiest option available.

                The smaller bars like the one I bought are split into 9 bite sized triangular sections and I love these shapes as they are so different from all other chocolate. When you open the bar you can see the chunks of nougat inside waiting to be tasted. The chocolate is smooth and creamy but I wouldn't say it is as good as cadbury's or galaxy by itself. The nougat and chocolate combo is what really makes this bar. You do get some big bits of nougat in the chocolate that you really have to crunch and chew. Sometimes the bits are smaller so you don't really feel them but they do add their flavour to the mouthful. I can easily eat a whole small bar but there is no way I would be able to manage one of the bigger ones in one go without being very sick. The small bars are the perfect size for a snack.

                Yum

                Toblerone, milk chocolate with honey and almond nougat, is one of those chocolates that feels as if it has been around for ever and is liked by everyone. Now I know that this isn't true but that is my perception. Toblerone is of course a Swiss chocolate and the sort that is often given as a gift as well as eaten as an every day chocolate. Toblerone comes in a variety of sizes starting with the individually sized 'bar' which costs about 55p. These can also be bought in multi-packs. Then there is a 100g bar for those who are a bit peckish, the 200g bar which I got from my favourite provider of chocolate, good old Poundland, the 400g bar which is very very popular come Christmas time, a huge giant 1kg one, which you don't see often, and you can also by One By One which are mini Toblerones in a gift box. They also do special edition packaging for Xmas and Fathers' Day with removable sleeves which is a nice touch.

                The packaging for Toblerone hasn't really changed since I have known it. The box is prism shaped, golden with 'Toblerone' in large red letters running along it and a picture of a mountain next to it, just in case we had forgotten where it had come from. Inside the larger bars including this one, the chocolate is wrapped in silver foil which I just find fiddly because tiny pieces always get torn off and go everywhere but I suppose it's there to make it easier to break without the heat of fingers making it melt. I also find this quite hard to break due to the triangular nature of the chocolate blocks within as Toblerone is like a row of mountain peaks. Where does this chocolate come from again?

                Now to the chocolate itself and yes it is as good as its reputation. It is intensely smooth and creamy with a slightly different edge to it than Cadbury or Galaxy. It is slow to melt in the mouth and leaves a really thick coating when it has done so you can taste if for some time afterwards. I also love the tiny off-white almond pieces hidden within as they bring a slight nuttiness and a change in texture to the chocolate, making each bite very slightly crunch amongst the smoothness of the chocolate. However, for those non-nut fans, worry not, as it is not overwhelming as the taste of nuts in Nut Dairy Milk.

                To sum up, a perennial favourite!

                  A great bar of chocolate - aimed more at Grown Ups!!

                  The marketing of Toblerone has changed a lot since it was created by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland in 1908. It was then that they developed a unique milk chocolate including nougat, almonds and honey with a distinctive triangular shape. It is believed the shape of a range of mountains in the Swiss Alps that gave them the inspiration to create Tolberone in the triangular shape we love today.

                  I can honestly say that the actually taste of the chocolate is very similar to what I enjoyed when I was younger. The only real difference in my view is the marketing. Instead of just the large bar which I had at Christmas, and would last for quite some time, Krafts (the present owner) have now brought about many different sizes. The same quality chocolate, just different amounts. These range from a tiny 3 peaks to a massive 15 peaks.

                  The one I am eating at the moment is an 8 peak 35g bar. It is very similar in size to other chocolate bars. On this bar it has a picture of a mountain range along with TOBLERONE emblazoned across the front. It also says that it is OF SWITZERLAND.

                  The bar consists of milk chocolate mixed with honey, almonds and nougat. It is quite hard to bite off and looks just like normal chocolate. That is until you start eating the chocolate then you can feel the almonds and nougat in your mouth. They are grinded up a lot, and mix well with the honey and the chocolate. I don't think it is aimed at the childrens market. It is more aimed at grown ups.

                    Disadvantages

                    A nice chocolate different to others on the market

                    Is there any chocolate products left that are not manufactured by Kraft? Are they taking over the confectionery world bar by bar? Well, whether or not they are, you can't deny that Toblerone is delicious and way different from other bars of chocolate on the market.

                    Toblerone is a swiss milk chocolate with a honey and almond nougat scattered throughout the bar. What makes Toblerone distinct from other chocolate is its design. The bar has been designed to be long and triangular shaped, which is thought to be based on the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps.

                    Now for the all important taste, after all, that's why we buy chocolate, isn't it, not for its looks eh. When you first open the foil wrapping you are met with a slight chocolatey aroma, but what does come through it the distinct smell of honey.

                    The bar can be quite difficult to eat, the larger the bar, the harder it is as the triangles are really thick and hard to get your teeth through. Once you've mastered the art, you will find the chocolate is really creamy and sweet, a bit overly so. The nougat is what really gives this bar a kick, once you are through the chocolate, the nougat is really crunchy then chewy, sometimes getting a little stuck in your teeth. I'm a chocoholic but I can't manage more than 2 pieces in one sitting.

                    Toblerone is available in most supermarkets in a variety of sizes. Often it is available in limited editions such as dark chocolate, or white, and around Christmas time in boxes of individually wrapped triangles in a variety of flavours.

                    Next time you see one, go and treat yourself, you'll remember why you loved them so much.

                    Give it a go!

                    My husband bought me a huge Toblerone milk chocolate with honey and almond nugat. It had an extra cover on it as it was a Valentine day special edition and there was an arrow on it showing the direction to my heart. Well we both know that it's not Valentine day yet but it was fun and the chocolate was delicious.

                    I think once you saw the unique prism shape of Toblerone chocolate you can't forget it. Toblerone is a Swiss quality chocolate. I think it is really delicious. The reason why I rate it only 4 out of 5 is because its shape is not very convenient. I don't know others like to eat these triangular chunks or not I find it difficult eating it without getting my hands chocolaty. So I think it is really fun to make a chocolate representing Matterhorn mountain in the Swiss Alps but I don't find it convenient when I try to eat it.

                    This chocolate is made in Switzerland by Kraft Foods UK who acquired the company producing this brand. Toblerone originally was created in 1908 by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann. Its name comes from the combination of Tobler and torrone (Italian word for a special nougat). There is one more interesting thing about this brand: if you take a look at the mountain on the wrapper you can see a hidden bear on the picture of the mountain. This bear symbolises the town of its origin. For more information visit www.toblerone.co.uk.

                    The ingredients are as follows: Sugar, Whole Milk Powder, Cocoa Butter, Cocoa Mass, Honey (3.0%), Milk Fat, Almonds (1.6%), Emulsifier (Soya Lecithin), Egg White, Flavouring (Vanillin), Milk Chocolate contains: Cocoa Solids 28% minimum. Milk Solids 14% minimum. Contains: milk, almonds, soya and egg.

                    The nutritional values per 100 g are as follows:
                    Energy: 525kcal
                    Protein: 5.4g
                    Carbohydrate: 60.0g
                    of which Sugars: 59.0g
                    Fat: 29.0g
                    of which Saturates: 17.5g
                    Fibre: 2.2g
                    Sodium: 0.06g

                    My husband bought the 400 g bar for 2.21 pounds in Sainsbury's. Its price was reduced by 33% now. It is available in smaller bars as well. You can find them in most of the supermarkets.

                    To sum up it is a delicious chocolate with very unique and not too convenient shape. It is true that once you saw it you won't forget it. Anyway for me still Cadbury is the number one chocolate brand. Swiss chocolate are really good I have to admit so from time to time we will buy Toblerone in the future too. The milk chocolate is smooth and melts quickly even in your hand while you try to brake a chunk. There are pieces of almond in it. If you haven't tried it yet give it a go!

                      Disadvantages

                      A good chocolate that doubles as a nice gift for a middle-aged male relative.

                      Manufactured by Kraft and created in 1907, Toblerone is a very popular swiss chocolate.

                      Toberlone makes a good present, although is definitely a distinctive one with its pyramid shape, presumably to resemble the Swiss Alps (Not a lot of people realize that!) Its taste is also very distinctive, containing a unique blend of delicious high-quality milk chocolate, almonds, nougat and honey. Its generally given to fathers and uncles and the like at Christmas and although it looks a little bit swanky, its actually relatively cheap, so much so, its actually become a bit of a cliche to be honest with you.

                      Its shape is actually a little bit awkward, its triangular shape has a tendency to scratch and push the roof of the mouth so you have to be careful eating it. This quality could actually be seen as a good thing though, as it means that you're not constantly stuffing your face lots at time. Intead you have to plan the logistics of eating each piece, which could be said to make it all the more enjoyable.

                      Its very tasty, but after repeated consumption, the distinctive taste definitely becomes a little too distinctive, and the chocolate itself does start to taste just that little bit sicky. For this reason, Toblerone is an item that is best to share with family and friends, rather than scoffing a whole line of alps on your own. It also comes in a white chocolate version, which is just as delicious and basicaly the same but with "snow-capped" alps if you can imagine such a thing. The two don't actually really gel that well, and if you ask me, you're better off buying original every time. Most people enjoy Toberlone, and as a daft little gift item, you can't really go wrong with it.
