Toblerone Changed the Shape of Its Chocolate and the Internet Is Not Happy

Posted on

The Toblerones they are a-changin’!

On Tuesday, the Swiss chocolate brand announced that the design of the popular candy will be changing, creating a larger gap between mounds that results in about 10% less chocolate per package. The company cited production costs for the reduction of chocolate, though the average package will be retaining its current price.

And, of course, the internet is not taking the news well. Some people even joked that it was the first sign of what is to come after the controversial Brexit vote this summer.

On the other hand, non-Brits poked fun at the fact that their Toblerone bars are super-sized since they stayed in the European Union.

The outrage had some questioning what other iconic chocolate bar would be changing their design.

Others are pointing out that the U.K. is freaking out about chocolate as Americans go out and vote in the most polarizing presidential election yet.

But as always, there are people that look at the brighter side of the situation, with one Twitter user noting that the extra room could prove useful.

Of course, this is just the latest example of public outrage over the sanctity of their favorite foods — don’t even get us started on $66 collard greens or or messing with guacamole.
