Disappointed Toblerone fans have taken to social media to vent their frustration after finding out the popular chocolate bar had changed in size and shape.
In a statement, Toblerone confirmed that they had increased the spacing between each triangle chunk in two of their bars in order to cut down on size due to rising costs.
“We appreciate the passion of the Toblerone fans around the world,” the statement reads.

“Due to rising costs in making our chocolate, we recently announced a weight reduction in two Toblerone bars.
“The 400g bar was reduced to 360g and the 170g bar, sold in the UK only, is now 150g. Our other bars remain unchanged.”
“We will never compromise on taste nor our famous Swiss quality and can assure you that the Toblerone recipe hasn’t changed.”
According to social media, the changes have not gone down too well with fans. Although some seem to like the new bar.
“Unpopular opinion but I actually think the new toblerone shape will be easier to eat,” one person wrote.
