you've ever stepped foot into an airport, you've undoubtedly
seen a Toblerone bar. Toblerone has one of the biggest distributions
of any high end chocolate bar anywhere in the world. I can imagine
that if you're reading this, assuming you're a bit of a candy
fan, you've probably tasted one in your life. That leads me
to one question, why haven't I reviewed one before today? It's
not like I've ever eaten one before, I'm sure I've eaten one
in the last few years. In fact I've reviewed several of the
different variety of Toblerone over the last few years, but
for some reason I haven't reviewed the classic Toblerone. My
guess is the price, it's not a cheap chocolate bar at all, and
some might argue that it's not really worth the high price.
I would have to say
that I'm one of these people. I find that the Toblerone bar
is a fine bar, but it's not worth the often high price you have
to pay to buy them. The chocolate is certainly high quality,
but the almond nougat never really comes across as being high
quality. Sure it's not bad, even though it sticks to my teeth
pretty badly. It's just not something I would associate with
a very high end chocolate bar. Soft chocolate truffle, sure,
thick caramel that's high class, but sticky nougat is just not
something I want to pay a great deal of money for.
I guess what I'm
saying is if you've never tried a Toblerone, it's truly worth
trying. I would just suggest that you don't pay the normal high
price for it. If you get offered one as a welcome gift on a
airplane or hotel, that's great. Maybe if you see them on sale,
that's great too, but just don't pay full price for these bars.
The chocolate is fantastic; the shape is fun, although a little
awkward, but that nougat really takes it down a bit.
