Next Nature reports on the recent evolution of Toblerone chocolat bars after Brexit. The tumbling value of the British pound, lead to the surge of import prices. As a result, the company which produces this product had to reduce its weight:
“In a statement the company explained the changes were needed in order to compensate the higher cost of the ingredients and to avoid to raise the price of its bars. The 400-gram pyramid-shaped chocolate bars are now reduced to 360 grams and the 170-gram bars to 150 grams. The packaging, however, remains unchanged.”
The Toblerone bar, which was designed to mimic the Swiss Alps, now is a pale version of the glorious mountains it was supposed to represent.
