Toblerone Fruit and Nut


I have always loved toblerone, its one of those treats that I like eating on longer in the day by having them just bit by bit. So I was really excited to see the newest bar from them...that with fruit and nuts.

It's not the first though, I have always enjoyed Cadbury's (everything about Cadbury's too) and Van Houten's or Nestle Chunky bars. When I came to Vienna, I was disappointed that Cadbury's, Nestle Crunch, Hershey's kisses, M&M Crispies and a lot more chocolates are not sold here. Not even ChipsAhoy or Oreo (what?). Yes, you might say its boring, but then they are actually available at the United Nation's Comissary which is unfortunately, accessible only to U.N. employees and their families. And since we are just neighbors with Switzerland, there are still lots of good chocolate around, particularly Lindt.

So in 2004, I was ecstatic (not really overreacting but I was really ecstatic) when I saw Cadbury chocolates being sold for the first time at Merkur. And that was the only grocery store that sells them.

Anyway, back to toblerone, I saw the toblerone fruit and nut and bought one for taste-test. According to other blogs it has been around since July 2007 but I saw them just yesterday at a nearby store.

Ok, considering the triangle-shape of the chocolate, there isn't much room given for the 'raisins.' I have tasted a few bits but only on the bottom part. Comparing to how it is with Cadbury...well, I'd say Cadbury has 9 out of 10 for being ok but Toblerone would only score 6. The add-ons do not blend well with the rich -chewy taste of toblerone, my tongue kept searching for the nougats instead.

How about you? What's the latest chocolate you've tried?

oooohhh....the idea seems very promising. i'm not really fond of raisins, but i like the goya milk chocolate bar with raisins....hehehe. my newest chocolate discovery is sainsbury's chunky caramel - it's a brand from the UK (pasalubong from a family friend). it has chewy nougat topped with caramel and covered with rich milk chocolate. love it! tastes just like mars. :)

I love Cadbury's fruit and nut, unfortunately the bars are already made here in the US and Canada, not in the UK, tuloy napakatamis, nakakaumay...and yet I still buy.:)

I am intrigued by that Toblerone F & N, havent't seen one yet, though.
