Toblerone change causes fury!

Duty Free chocolate favorite Toblerone has sparked fury amongst it’s fans this week by changing the iconic design of it’s chocolate bar. They’ve reduced the number of triangular peaks of chocolate per bar – spacing them out more along the bar. US-based manufacturer Mondelez International say that the reason for doing so is to reduce the weight of the bar due to the rising cost of ingredients. They say that it was either this or raising the price. A spokesman said: “We chose to change the shape to keep the product affordable for our customers.” They also added “like many other companies, we are experiencing higher costs for numerous ingredients. We carry these costs for as long as possible, but to ensure Toblerone remains on-shelf, is affordable and retains the triangular shape, we have had to reduce the weight of just two of our bars in the UK, from the wider range of available Toblerone products.”
