Mind the chocolate gap: Britons grumble as Toblerone shrinks

Post  Lamplighter on Tue Nov 08, 2016 4:39 pm

GENEVA (AP) — More valleys, fewer chocolate peaks: The maker of Toblerone Swiss chocolate says it's widened the spaces in its iconic, triangle-array bars for some discount shops in Britain to keep prices down.


In this photo illustration two bars of the Toblerone Swiss chocolate are shown, at front is the new style 150 gram bar showing the reduction in triangular pieces, in the background is the older style 360 gram bar, pictured in London, Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016. More valleys, fewer chocolate peaks: The maker of Toblerone Swiss chocolate says it's widened the spaces in its iconic, triangle-array bars for some discount shops in Britain to keep prices down. Mondelez International says the move aims to meet pricing targets by customer Poundland and other discount retailers, and has nothing to do with Britain's vote to leave the European Union.

Just reading that, LL. You can bet your bottom dollar that if the smaller one sells well in Poundland, etc., it won't be long before the normal bars are 'improved', too.
