Toblerone Fruit & Nut

You know how there are some candies which remind you of certain types of people? Charms Blow Pops remind me of snarky teenage girls, Mentos reminds me of Europeans riding bikes, Werther’s Originals remind me of dirty old men, Tic Tacs of skinny people… you get the idea. For some reason Toblerone is one of those candies which I associate with two types of people: middle aged men and backpackers in Europe. The former because my Dad always ate Toblerone, and the latter because I can recall seeing many a backpacker in Europe carting around those enormous 10 pound size Toblerone bars to take home as a souvenir.

I should say up front that I actually love Toberlone bars – the quality of the chocolate is great, the nougat gives a lovely texture and the unique shape appeals to me. When I saw bars of Toblerone Fruit & Nut on sale, I was intrigued – mostly because I also think Fruit & Nut combos in chocolate are another thing only older men eat. Toblerone + dried fruit = candy bar for the geriatric market?

The good news is that this bar is, quite simply, brilliant. Kraft’s attempt at reinvigorating the Toblerone brand via this new flavor is a good one. Initially I thought the added fruit would tip this over into the “too sweet” category, but there was a good fruit/chocolate ratio, even accounting for the nougat. I suspect there are very few whole pieces of fruit or nut in it because those would make the triangles less smooth and ruin the overall look of the bar; who wants a lumpy Toblerone? All in all, it’s a fantastically delicious bar and I wholeheartedly recommend it.

According to the Toblerone website, not all flavors are available in all countries, but if you can get your hands on some, I say it’s as good an excuse as any to invite your Dad over for some chocolate! Just make sure he leaves his backpacking boots at home.

    I wouldn’t recommend Werther’s catering to their perceived demographic in their advertisements LOL! Yet somehow, I get what you mean.

    The Toblerone sounds yummy!
