Toblerone is a chocolate I didn’t get any exposure to until I got into college. I guess my parents figured it’s pretty large for a chocolate bar for a kid, and my high school years were spent living in the countryside, so I didn’t have any stores close by that carried it. At least I don’t’ recall seeing it ever, and this was before CVS and other large drug stores started to stock them. I’ve only had the milk, dark, and seasonal raisin variety previously, so you could imagine my excitement when I saw a white variety existed. I quickly snatched it up.
For those of you unfamiliar with Toblerone, it’s a long chocolate bar that comes in a triangular box. The mountain icon on the package has a bear in it. The chocolate itself is molded into ridges so that it looks like mountains and easily broke off to enjoy one at a time.
So how does it taste? The white chocolate is excellent. It’s sweet, buttery and has a slight chocolate flavor as good white chocolate should. It melts wonderfully in the mouth. The crispy nougat bits in the chocolate has a very pronounced honey flavor with a nutty edge to them. The chocolate and the nougat blends wonderfully together to make a very satisfying flavor. The nougat bits are quite sticky if try to chew them. They get stuck in your teeth easily, so I recommend the whole “letting it melt in your mouth” strategy here.
The bar is awesome and I must try for any white chocolate lover. While I love it, I think if this is your first time having a Toblerone you should try the milk chocolate first, then try the white chocolate variety.
