Advantages: Individually wrapped so they don't melt whilst you're eating them
Disadvantages: 330g isn't big enough for a family of Toblerone lovers but there isn't a 1Kg version available -
I have many pet peeves in life and boxes of chocolates are one of them. They're so totally and utterly pointless. If I want chocolate I want a 200g bar of it not a huge box costing three times as much with half the amount of chocolate and revoltingly squishy liquid centres which make you really wish you hadn't bothered in the first place.
Then along came Celebrations (mini chocolate bars) and hanging on their coat tails Toblerone Tinys. At last the manufacturers are thinking along the right lines. Toblerone Tinys are individually wrapped which makes them acceptable for sharing, not that my collegues have any concerns about breaking chunks off someone elses giant bar. Most importantly they taste just like their big brother the original Toblerone in all its 400g glory.
The biggest advantage to Toblerone Tinys is a single 330g box conatins thre three most popular Toblerone falvours namely milk, dark and white chcolate saving you trying to decide which individual bar to get or more importantly from buying all three and then suffering from stomach ache. I have no will power where chocolate is concerned.
Price is still an issue at £3.99 a box (£1.21 per 100g) but compared to £1.00 per 100g bar thats not an enormous price hike. Its still much cheaper than a traditonal box of chocolates (400g Milk Tray £4.98 Asda).
Toblerone Tinys are housed within a triangular box with a hinged lid opened by removing an easy tear strip. Within the box are approximately 65 minature Toblerone bars each weighing 5 grams. The bars are segmented into four allowing you to break off even smaller chunks to make the bars last even longer. Quite possible the best thing about Toblerone Tinys is the size they're perfect for putting into your mouth whole without getting chocolate under your fingernails which seems to happen whenever I break chunks off a giant 400g bar.
Clearly you're wondering about the taste. They're scrummy. The beige wrapped cholate are full of the unique honey and nougat flavourings that make Toblerone stand out from the crowd, the black ones are dark chocolate although its not as bitter as other dark chocolates and the white one is simply devine, not a cloying as Milky Bar white chocolate but still incredibly creamy.
Summary: Perfect for indecisive Toblerone lovers
