The Toblerone chocolate bar has changed its shape

Mind the gap!

The Toblerone chocolate bar has changed its shape

Just a few months ago, it was revealed that Quality Street was replacing its Toffee Deluxe with an all new chocolate called Honeycomb Crunch. Change is clearly in the air because now the Swiss-made Toblerone has also made some updates to its beloved chocolate bar.

Due to 'higher costs for numerous ingredients', Toblerone has increased gaps between chocolate bar's triangular chunks. While Toblerone announced the U.K.-only change on its Facebook page in mid-October, it seems that people are really only starting to notice the difference now. Here's what the new Toblerone bar looks like:

People have been taking to social media to express their surprise at the change, with some people not too pleased that the smaller bars have decreased in weight. The 400g bar now weighs 360g, while the 170g version weighs 150g.

In a Facebook post, the company behind the iconic chocolate bar said: 'Toblerone remains one of the best value and most delicious Swiss chocolate products in the market. This is because we always work hard to ensure we offer value for money for our consumers, but 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.'

But some people don't seem to mind so much about the change - just as long as they can still enjoy the chocolate bar in all its almond and honey flavour deliciousness.
