Merry Christmas Eve everyone! I hope you are all with loved ones and having a great time!
Toblerone is a candy I only recently started trying. By recent I mean in the past few years, as it was a never a candy that I had as a child. Oddly enough though since I’ve been buying it as an adult, my Mom has started slipping them into our Christmas stockings along with our Terry Chocolate Oranges. A pleasant surprise indeed. Over the past couple years I’ve been able to try a few limited edition Toblerones. Most of them seem to come out in time for the holidays, and the one I found for today’s review is no different in that regard.
To start, I have to say I love the colors on this package. The bright sky blue/turquoise color is so eye-catching and attractive. It also proved a wonderful contrast with the bright red Toblerone flavoring. The “crunchy salted almond” image on the side I mistook at first as honey roasted peanuts. Can you imagine how good that would be? I was a little disappointed to find that it was just salted almonds, but I’m ok with that. I’m sure the makers of this bar knew what they were doing.
The chocolate has a nice rich brown color and a beautiful sheen to it. You can see the standard honey almond nougat flakes in the chocolate and they give it a pretty speckled look. The chocolate smells sweet and has a strong nutty scent to it. It reminds me of how a Snickers smells since it has such a nutty aroma with a hint of salt. I’m really looking forward to seeing how this tastes.
My first bite begins with the flavor of the milk chocolate. It’s sweet and has a nice creamy flavor to it. You then start to get flavors of the honey nougat and the almonds, adding a nice crispy texture and some sweet and nutty flavors. The almonds taste incredibly fresh and have that nice amaretto-almond flavor to them that I love so much. The came a stage of the flavor that I wasn’t expecting, which is a nice kick of salt. The salty kick really brings all the flavors together and enhances them. it’s really flavor magic, I don’t’ know how else to describe it. It’s super yummy and incredibly addicting.
Both my husband and I gobbled up this Toblerone pretty quickly. It was super tasty and it’s so easy to snap off a section and wrap it up for later. The flavor is nutty and satisfying and has that addicting sweet/salty combination. It’s a really irresistible candy bar. A must try if you happen upon it.
