Toblerone

I adore Toblerone.

How about you?

My boyfriend bought me a gigantic 750gram one yesterday, I could choke an entire town of Swiss people with it. It's rather evil.

Apparently they produce a 4.5 KILOGRAM size. I have never seen one that big, ever. This 750gram one is the biggest I have ever beheld.

I think so, definitely 4.5grams is absurd, unless your entire extended family are coming over for a visit.

Chocolate flavored sugar. Now 72% dark chocolate or bitter sweet chocolate pound bars from Trader's Joe.

Toblerone is only worth it for the novelty of the embedded chips of honey. For chocolate, wilbur buds are better.

I like the white chocolate one. The regulars all suck, I'm not sure why I don't like them.

the normal one is ok, but the bittersweet is best. I want the 1 metre long block.

Toblerone, mixed with cream and melted slowly over slow heat makes an outstanding chocolate fondue.

By the way, that is one of the things the "giant" ones are used for.
