Click pic to view comments - Confirmed sighting: Toblerone Snowtop Limited Edition Confirmed sighting: Toblerone Snowtop Limited Edition
Posted: 11:55 Wed 18-Aug-2004. Price: 99p. Location: Woolworths, Edgware Road. Nutritional unusualness: None noted.
"Commander Zorg" reports: A normal Toblerone "capped" with a peak of pure white chocolate, making the equilateral bar look even more like the pretty mountains you see in the distance on foreign holidays. The summit is pure white chocolate with NO honeyed lumps in, but you're hard pushed to tell the difference in flavour between this and regular Tobler thanks to the similar sweetness levels of the white "snow" and brown "foothills" segments. A pretty and technically impressive bar, but too familiar in taste to the standard product to really recommend.

...And a big welcome back to "The Commander", to be commended for both his pioneering use of "..." for comic effect *and* the moody lighting in this product photograph. In other alpine adventuring - it was a few months ago now that "Diarmuid Mallon" paid 30p for a Loacker Milk Bit in GreenPark, Reading, enthusing: Our canteen has a new chef who has introduced some new non-mainstream sweets to sit alongside the traditional Mars bars etc. The Milk Bit is a "wafer biscuit with a milky cream filling, wheatgerm crispies and milk chocolate (56% cream)". The balance of filling to wafer to chocolate covering is perfect, with the crispies adding a nice crunch to the experience. Very nice. Yum Yum.

Comment: But still no sign of the legendary and elusive giant Toblerone, snacking's equivalent of the giant squid.

Comment: we only know it exists because of the giant "bite marks" noticed on unwary Swiss tourists washed up on these shores... seriously, given the timing of our previous "sighting", I assumed it was more of a Christmas thing? http://www.snackspot.org.uk/thread.php?story=0312100935sbc

Comment: I've only seen them at Christmas, perhaps they are migratory? I've got two empty boxes as proof of their formidable size! - never eat more than one chunk at a time and never put a chunk in the fridge and expect to be able to get your teeth in it again.

Comment: Choccieman, could you send a photo in? I'm sceptical about the existence of such beasts.

We are talking about the huge, £39.99 Toblerone aren't we?

Comment: The white-chocolate-only version of Toblerone is by far the best, we do get that in this country don't we?

Comment: From the Kraft Foods Australia website:

"Besides the original milk chocolate TOBLERONE there is also dark chocolate TOBLERONE, and white chocolate TOBLERONE. Milk chocolate is available in 35g, 50g, 100g, 200g, 400g, 750g and a huge 4.5kg size. Dark and white are available in 100g and 400g bars."

4.5Kg. Good lord. http://www.kraft.com.au/ [URL display truncated]

Comment: Whatever happened to the 'blue' toblerones, the ones with the white fondant/praline/whatever it was in the middle.

They were pretty darned lush, IMO.

Comment: God damn! I had just spotted, bought and sampled one of the Snowtops being sold the Margate (undoubtedly the UK's premier seaside resort?) Woolworth's, so being beaten to actually submitting the review is galling. Tom: you should have been a bit quicker off the mark! However, I don't really have much to add to the Commander's report, except that since white chocolate is the food of the devil, the Snowtop can be best enjoyed by biting off (and preferably spittng out) the white chocolate snowtops, and then eating the rest. However, if you're going to do that then you are obviously better off just buying a regular toblerone. Also, this edition may be limited, but it isn't exactly seasonal, is it?

Comment: Broadstairs is much classier than Margate. I'm a big fan of Broadstairs.
Posted: 22:36 Mon 23-Aug-2004 by "Victoria" # permalink comment
Comment: Braodstairs is indeed classier. But does it have a wooden rollercoaster, an allegedly pre-Roman underground shell temple, or the glory that is the margate caves? No, it does not. And there, I rest my case: classier it may be, but the best that Broadstairs can do in the way of ludicrous historical curiosities is a house that Dickens spent some time living in - how rubbish is that?

Comment: You're right of course. I'm just too middle class - Margate brings me out in spasms of sneering, I have to be taken away and given a cup of tea and a nice warm copy of the Telegraph.

Comment: yes, does Broadstairs have an amusement park named after the USAF's secret Area 51 "Dreamland" research base? Time for a Snackspot trip to the beach! 49935 5
