Toblerone White Chocolate
Advantages: Lovely nutty taste
Disadvantages: Big chunks can be hard to eat.
Not all Christmas presents are easy to disguise when they are wrapped up and Toblerone is one of the easiest to guess. Having had a little feel around the bag of presents I was given by a friend yesterday there is one in there and as she knows my preference it is going to be a white one.
As a child these always seemed to be very special simply because they were not designed the same way other chocolate bars where. It was hard to bite into back then but the 400g blocks are even more difficult and if past experience is anything to go by it will be a case of forcing a triangle off the block and then risking back teeth in an attempt to get a reasonable sized piece to eat.
Checking on the manufacture I found that it is now only produced in Switzerland in Bern although it has been manufactured in Bedford and Zagreb.
There are a number of different types but all of them are made with almonds and nougat with the difference being the size and the type of chocolate covring. They can be white, milk or dark chocolate and my favourite is definitely the white. It is a little sweeter than the others and the white chocolate and almond works very well together. I have never tried the dark so cannot comment on that, but the milk ones are also really nice and the almond taste comes through.
There are not that many ingredients in the bar but they are the ones you would imagine. Almonds and nougat make up a decent proportion and then there are eggs, soya lecithin, vanilla flavouring, milk powder, honey, cocoa butter and sugar. I have taken the nutritional information directly from the company website. It's scary to think that the block I have been given has more than the recommended daily calories in it, but it will be eaten over a number of days - and not just by me.

As I have absolutely no self control I have just opened the Toblerone and it is the white one and now has a couple of triangles missing. It tastes just as nice as I remember it. The texture is quite crunchy and the pieces need to be chewed thoroughly as the nougat is quite hard.
It is currently on offer for £3 at Tesco although after Christmas it is supposed to be going back to its normal price of £4.
Summary: This is not something I would eat everyday but lovely as a treat.
