My boyfriend is such a chocoholic! I swear he'd live on the stuff if possible which is why when he comes to stay with me (we have a long distance relationship) I always get a few chocolate things in for him.
This toblerone fruit and nut bar comes in many different sizes, of course all costing different amounts and this 100g, rather long and weighty bar cost me a pound recently in my local Asda store.
My bar came in a long, triangle shaped yellowy and purple coloured box and down two sides of it we are told that it is 'Swiss Milk Chocolate With Honey And Almond Nougat And Raisins', Toblerone 'Fruit & Nut' and there is a piece of the chocolate shown as well as being told that there are 124Kcal per 25g serving. Other information on the box includes ingredients, size, a full nutritional chart is shown and contact details for Kraft Foods (the manufacturer of the product) are listed.
Wrapped tightly in silver foil which is simple enough to peel off what you get is a line of thickish and rounded off triangle shapes all on a thickish, oblong base with the word Toblerone etched into it lightly. The chocolate has a a lovely, sweet smell of milk chocolate to it with a light Candy smell also and appears a creamy, light brown, milk chocolate.
This chocolate is slightly unusual and very good quality. Nicely sweetened but in a natural way, the chocolate is creamy, rich enough and melts in the mouth nicely. There is a very subtle flavour of honey within it and then some very small pieces of white nougat and bits of dark, plump raisins scattered through the whole thing. I struggled to find any small lumps of almond within the bar and was a little disappointed at the lack of fruit content within it however not best pleased at all that I didn't really find very much nut at all no matter that I searched high and low for it as that is why I bought the bar anyway...I am nutty for nuts!
This is a nice bar of chocolate and I like the chewy texture of fruit against the smoothness of the lovely, sweet and creamy chocolate however did find the lack of fruit and almond within it not so great and always think that these bars, for what they are, are a little on the expensive side to be honest!
Nutritional Information Per 25g Serving:
Can be found in all supermarkets etc.
We got a couple of these in Asda over the weekend. They were on offer for 50p for the 100g bar, so worth a buy. The right price in Asda was £1.
These have been out for a little while. Not that long, but certainly not as long as the original Toblerone's. The bar is the usual triangle shape and has 9 pieces to it. All the bits are joined together more so at the bottom and you just snap the pieces off to eat them. The Chocolate is quite thick and milky. Not as Milky as Cadbury's or galaxy. This is made by kraft and I would say the same sort of Milk Chocolate taste as Nestle.
The bar is wrapped in a silver foil and boxed in a cardboard box. Just looks like the Dooyoo picture.
This has bits of Fruit and nut studded through the flat bit at the bottom. There isn't loads of Nuts in here and I struggled to taste that many of them. The Fruit seems to be more Raisins, but they were juicy and there seemed to be a good amount of them. This livened the standard Chocolate taste up and was nice enough.
Easy to eat the whole bar in 1 go. don't have the pack to hand as although I didn't eat it in 1 go, I have binned the cardboard bit with all the info on it, fair amount of calories as you would expect from 100g of Chocolate.
A nice Chocolate bar at a great price just now.
== How I came by it ==
Well this is going to shock and mortify some of you and others may be currently on the phone to the psychiatrist as your reading this. Where my husband works somebody is leaving and he gave her a present and she gave him one back (she's not normal, I've been and she's like the cat woman from the Simpson's). Anyway silly husband did a very stupid thing and he came in from his night shift and left it on the kitchen table, so as much as I tried to focus on the house work and doing various other pregnancy related task like writing a novel on the amount of toilet trips I make- the baby growing inside me told me it wanted the Toblerone... I tried to compromise but it was like like Gordon Brown and David Cameron trying to compromise, bowl of cereals, toast, other chocolate bars. No the baby informed me unless I devour the whole Toblerone it was going to attack my kidneys my spine and make me feel very sick.
As much as I tried to refrain from munching the whole lot one piece soon flowed into two then three then there was none left (needless to say I've hidden the wrapping and if anyone meets my husband there was no such thing as a Toblerone fruit and nut bar sitting on the dining room table!).
== What exactly is it ==
Well it's a play on the normal toblerone bars with bits of fruit and nut in it, giving little tasty pockets of flavour. As with all Toblerone's it's in its normal funky pyramid shape wrapped in tin foil in a pyramid shaped box in the usual Toblerone colours of yellow but with a splash of blues and purples thrown in for good measure.
Put into Laymen's terms, this is a bar of Toblerone with fruit and nut chucked throughout!!
== How was it ==
Tasty very tasty! The normal Toblerone chocolate with its nougat pieces, but with fruit and nut mixed in as well. The thing I liked about it is that it's not monster sized pieces like you can get with some of the bars witch quiet frankly hurt my teeth and my dad cant touch them because he might break his teeth on the monster bars but this one provided perfect mouth sized chunks.
It tasted very nice, and the little bits of fruit and nut which were thrown throughout the bar were nice little extras, and made a difference from the normal Toblerone bars which I find can be a little bit boring sometimes, and "too" chocolatey, if there is such a thing!!!
== Pricing ==
After a quick search online I found it at www.britishcornershop.co.uk I found it for sale at £2.19 for a 100g bar witch I think seems reasonable for premium chocolate bar. Yes it is more expensive than a normal bar of chocolate like Dairy Milk, but it is bigger than anormal bar, and makes a nice little extra with a birthday present!
== Warnings ==
As you may have guessed it contains nuts- almonds according to the packet.
Also the bar has milk, egg and soya- so if you don't eat these products, then this is not the chocolate bar for you. If you're giving this to the young or some one with sensitive teeth don't put it in the fridge and allow to warm a bit first, as the chocolate can be a little hard, so leave it at room temperature! My husband always puts chocolate in the fridge so when I come to get it, it's rock hard and tooth shattering!!
== Ingredients ==
Sugar, whole milk powder, cocoa butter, raisins (12%), cocoa mass, honey (3%), milk fat, almonds (1.6%), emulsifier: soya lecithin, egg white, flavouring (vanillin).
Milk chocolate contains: Cocoa solids 28% minimum. Milk solids 14% minimum.
Toblerone Fruit and Nuts.
Having been shopping tonight i noticed a bar of Toblerone Chocolate on the shelve, that looked slightly different from the usual bars that i buy of this chocolate. This bar being a slightly different bar containing not only the usual Toblerone that i have come to love and know well but also it now contains nuts and raisins, which has a slightly different appearance in the wrapping than the usual yellow one.
The Package **********
Triangle shaped pieces of chocolate Swiss but in a packet that starts off yellow then merges into a Redish Burgundy Colour, and containing the addition to the honey nougat of nuts and fruit. The Chocolate tastes just as good as ever and also the addition of the fruit and nuts makes for a nice change to this bar. It still comes in its usual triangle shape, and it rapped inside the packet with silver foil.
Yes it was really lovely, i have been a fan of Toblerone anyway for quite a while now, but i would say that this bar with the extra nuts and fruit included, really is a winner for me, and for the bonus of having all this in a bar of 100grams for the price of 54p, its definitely good, and yes i did only buy one !!! did not know if i was going to like this new one, but i certainly do and i will buy this again in the near future, when i have finished the bar i brought tonight.
Toblerone is made by Kraft, who instantly spring to mind to me anyway for cheese, but their chocolate Toblerone is well worth buying especially at this extra special price from Sainsbury's for 54p i think it is definetely worth a buy.
Per 100gs. Energy is 495Kcals, Protein is 5.1gs, and Carbohydrates are listed on the packet as 61.gs and fat at 25.5gs.
It doesnt have to be too bad for you as i always say a little of what you fancy now and again doesnt hurt, (moderation) being the key word.
I liked the taste of this chocolate but then i do like sweet things, and this chocolate is certainly sweet, but i enjoyed trying it.
Thanks for reading and rating my reviews.x.
Toblerone to me, and I expect to many other people as well, has always been quite strongly associated with Christmas. Here we are with less than a month left to go until the big day (a frightening thought, isn't it?) and so it seems appropriate to review one of the famous triangular bars. I've chosen the Fruit & Nut variant, partly because it's relatively new and partly because I like fruit and nut chocolate - after all, there's not much point in reviewing something I expect to hate!
This is a small bar, weighing in at a mere 35 grams, and it certainly looks small beside the other chocolate bars on the shelves. That makes its RRP of 42p seem a little bit expensive, but I took advantage of Poundland's "four for a pound" offer, and at an effective price of 25p it's much better value. The traditional yellow Toblerone wrapper shades to purple at one end, making the (also traditional) red blocky "TOBLERONE" logo stand out much less than on the standard bar. The reassuring words "Made in Switzerland" appear with the ingredients list.
Kraft (who own Toblerone) are keen to stress the fact that a bar of this stuff contains just 174 kcal. Of course, they don't point out that that's only because it's so small! The nutrition panel reveals that 100g provides 495 kcal, which is actually not too bad at all, but is not startlingly low. A bar contains a hefty 21.5 of carbohydrate (presumably mostly sugars) and 8.9g of fat... but this is chocolate, not a Slim-Fast Shake, so don't worry too much! More importantly, this product is suitable for vegetarians, but contains milk, almonds, soya and egg.
Opening it up, you see a Toblerone bar in the classic shape: spiky triangular chunks of chocolate linked together by a long thin base. The letters "TOBLERONE" are (rather too lightly) embossed along the side of the base, but disappointingly there are only eight chunks for a nine-letter word, which makes the letters look a bit out of place. The familiar honeyed Toblerone smell is, thankfully, still present, and surprisingly isn't much different from that in the standard bar; this is the first sign that not all is perfect.
Unfortunately eating the bar rather confirms that this fear is not misplaced. Although it breaks apart as you'd expect, and the "hilarious" Tobleroney ritual of practically breaking your teeth on the odd-shaped chunks is intact, the actual bar is a slight disappointment. The chocolate itself is fine, and that honey does make it taste rich, but Kraft have been really quite mean with the raisins and (especially) the almond pieces: while you do get the odd chunk where several cluster together and give a nice, solid texture there are too many places where it's just solid chocolate.
My reference bar for this flavour is, as you would expect, the Cadbury Fruit & Nut bar. Kraft, of course, wish to take over Cadbury. Sad to say, if they do so then it will be the amkers of the inferior fruit-and-nut bar taking over the makers of the superior one. Toblerone's effort is in no way unpleasant, but it's not very special: a little more generosity with the almonds in particular might have paid dividends. Three stars, in that it's quite tasty but not worth seeking out specially.
I popped into the village shop on my way home from work to pick up some milk and sidetracked myself by drooling over their very eclectic chocolate selection. I finally emerged victorious from the shop clutching four pints of milk in one hand and a tiny 42 pence Fruit and Nut Toblerone in the other.
The wrapper is purple at one end and beige at the other with the Toblerone logo writtten down its length. Its very understated, definately not as eyecatching as the other lurid offerings and rather strangely its calorie content is written in bold type at the side of the logo. It might be small but it crams a whole lot of calories into its 35g pack, 174 of them to be precise. Gram for gram thats more than you'd find in a Cadburys Creme Egg. Its very easy to open and peels back along an easy tear strip to reveal eight identical triangular pieces of choclate joined together at the base with letters spelling out Toblerone in capitals inprinted onto each one. If you break the bar into chunks it is possible to rearrange the chunks to make a variety of words out of these letters although to date I've not managed anything longer than five letters.
The bar itself is full of flecks of nougat with the odd fluffy raisin. If the label hadn't informed me that the bar contained nuts I wouldn't have had a clue, you certainly can't taste them. What you can taste is the distinctive sweet juciness of raisins followed by crunchy chewy nougat and a very unique almost honey flavoured chocolate.
Overall Toblerone Fruit and Nut is rather moreish although you do find the nougat gets stuck in your teeth.
On a recent trip to Poundland I bought some of my favourite sweets loose four for a pound - bargain!
There were two types of Toblerone the famous triangle chocolate from Switzerland that I bought and one was the Fruit & Nut flavour of 'Swiss milk chocolate with honey and nougat and raisins' which would cost the RRP of 42p if bought separately....
The best before date on my little 35g is not until next Aug so that's cool, plus the Toblerone is made by Kraft foods in Switzerland.
Calories are 174g which is pretty high plus there are 21.5g of carbohydrates and 8.9g of fat which is high again - this is why these are a treat. They are 9% of an adult's healthy daily guideline if you count such things...
Wrapped in beige plastic packaging the famous name is in big red letters and the ingredients are on the side.
Containing 3% honey plus 1.6 almonds and 10% almond nougat and the milk chocolate contains 28% solids, for allergists there is almond, milk and soya and egg too. There are 12% raisins in this confectionery.
Suitable for vegetarians you need to keep this product cool and dry and away from heat.
Taste wise this is lovely creamy original milk chocolate with speckles of solid chewy nougat and juicy raisins throughout it :)
It's the nougat that makes Toblerone so special and so different, as the texture is a big change between smooth and rough tiny pieces of nuts and solid nougat pieces.
I really like this version and have grown up with it, the chocolate is so full of flavour it deserves five stars, and the unique triangle shape is awesome!
