The people of Britain are NOT happy.
Bosses at Toblerone have sparked outrage among its customers after making a ‘stupid’ change to the product’s famous triangular chunks.
The Swiss chocolate, owned by Mondelez International have increased the gay between the peaks because of a rise in the cost of ingredients.
The company released the following statement: “We always work hard to ensure we offer value for money for our consumers, but like many other companies, unfortunately we are experiencing higher costs for many ingredients.
“We carry these costs for as long as possible, but to ensure Toblerone remains on shelf, is affordable and retains the iconic shape we all know and love, we have had to reduce the weight of this particular bar.”
The story even got to number one on the BBC News website!
The 400g and 170g bars, which are both sold in the UK, now weigh just 360g and 150g!
One customer, Hannah Sassone, posted an image of a newly purchased bar, showing a huge difference in shape. She captioned the snap: “Dear Toblerone, This picture of our bar this evening seems to be different to yours? Diet version???? #FeelCheated.”
Fans have lashed out at the change, as you can imagine!
Some took it very, very seriously: “Very disappointed, was good while it lasted… moving on to other things… terrible decision.”
Another wrote on their Facebook page: “Feeling a bit cheated by this Toblerone to be honest – more empty space than chocolate!”
Others took to Twitter to share the funny side of ‘#ToberoneGate’.
A user wrote: “Biggest #news in the #US – #PresidentialElection Biggest news in the #UK – ‘#TobleroneGate”
Jokingly, Senan Byrne said: “I am shocked and appalled at the new Toblerone #Toblerone #tobleronegate”.
He attached a hilarious pic of sprouts coming out the packet.
Of course, people could not resist in blaming Brexit for this ‘meltdown’.
Luckily, the bars’ packaging remains the same!
