You Play the Cymbal, I want the Triangle.

Advantages: Rich Swiss chocolate.
You come across an offer you can't possibly resist. Today I spotted a heap of boxes which were filled with miniature Toblerone chocolate bars. The Toblerone Tinys were nicely boxed and they were priced at £3 for 330g .
The whole world has gone mini mad, but in one respect it is a good idea, maybe the trend for all things chocolate to come in miniature is meant to prevent us from over-indulging.
What a treat those boxes of Cadbury's Hero's are, I have my special favourites and I am ashamed to say that I pick them all out before anyone else gets a look in ( the mini-Maltesers!)
The mini Toblerones are described as being a `twist` on the conventional larger bars. In the box there are lots of baby Toblerones, some in white chocolate, some in dark chocolate and some in milk chocolate. Each miniature Toblerone consists of three triangles of the sweet Swiss chocolate and is individually wrapped.
I must have lead a sheltered life because up until today I had never sampled a dark chocolate Toblerone. I have tried the white chocolate version and although they are reasonably good these will be passed on to the Other Half who just adores white chocolate.
I think that most of us are familiar with the milk chocolate Toblerone, the sweet creamy Swiss milk chocolate is fabulous. The Toblerone is reminiscent of the homemade christmas pudding that has been stuffed with sixpences only those small silver coins come in the form of nuggets of nougat and chunks of nut. I have to say that I am like a child when I come across a nugget of nougat, I like the sweet sticky nougat to adhere to the edge of a molar so that it can be enjoyed over a longer period of time !
These miniature Toblerone bars are neatly wrapped and each type of chocolate is wrapped differently so that they are instantly recognisable.
The white miniature bars are already in the Other Half's in-tray for him to enjoy at his leisure. I plod along and partake of a dark chocolate Toblerone tiny which is good but I have to admit that the traditional milk chocolate Toblerone win hands down for me.
I have now sidelined the dark chocolate ( to be eaten when there is nothing else in the cupboard ) and move swiftly on to the miniature milk chocolate Toblerone.
This is more like it, the rich creamy milk chocolate is amazing and it is riddled with nougat and chopped nuts, before I know it I am sitting beside a heap of empty wrappers.
Though I cannot put my finger on it there is still something missing...
Then it dawns on me, when I am about to enjoy a few squares of Toblerone I usually have a few obstacles to overcome first.
The triangular box needs to be prised open, a larger bar of Toblerone is incredibly difficult to break apart and I have often resorted to putting the carving knife in between the triangles and hitting it with the rolling pin. You try sticking your fingers in between those chocolate triangles and breaking it, it takes a better man than me.
Then the larger bar of Toblerone is encased in a thin silver paper, of which every scrap must be removed before you can start to eat ( in case a sliver of the silver paper should get trapped in your filling ).
Having the box of Toblerone tinys made life far less complicated but it took some of the fun away. The miniature Toblerones tasted every bit as good as the larger bars but it was all too easy !
Each toblerone Tiny contains around 55 calories and unless you want to look like Wallace and Gromit don't be tempted to put them into your mouth side ways.
Summary: Just sit back and enjoy.
