As a child Toblerone was for me the holy grail of chocolate, a treat at Christmas time. When white and dark bars along with giant Toblerones hit the shores of England I was in heaven. I enjoyed the nutty, mild honey taste along with the adventure of breaking it into pieces. It was not the easiest of confections to eat, especially when chilled. I remember the experience of biting a triangle off the bar as the adjacent piece scraped the gums surrounding my upper teeth.
The bar has been downsized, with less pieces in each bar, now looking a bit like gaps from missing teeth. I have heard it said that the austerity measures are due to Brexit, perhaps the bars are a little easier to eat. Dezeen Magazine reports that the changes are shaping up to be the worst received redesign since Uber changed its logo this year.
I invite you to share your thoughts.

I love Toblerone. I haven’t been able to find dark chocolate ones here, that sounds amazing!
I don’t think I have every had one. But it sounds like the modern ones are not worth it?
It depends on how sweet a tooth you have.
Don’t know anything about Toblerone or Uber’s new logo, but it’s a delightful change to be decrying changes in candy and not changes in presidents. Thanks.
I love your comments, thank you Eileen.
