Toblerone Trivias

Do you know that…

…the first Toblerone chocolate bar was created in a confectionary store called Fabrique de Chocolat Berne, Tobler & Cie by Jean Tobler with his son and Emil Baumann in 1908?

… Toblerone came from Jean Tobler’s last name Tobler and the Italian word “torrone” which means nougat?

…the Toblerone brand and shape received a trademark in 1909 from the Federal Institute for Intellectual Property in Bern? This means that no one else can produce triangular chocolates.

…the triangular shape of the toblerone represents the Matterhorn in Switzerland? This is why in some parts of the world, each chunk is referred to as an “Alp.”

…the number of Toblerone’s produced daily would stretch over a distance of 283 km. when laid end to end?

…the number of peaks per Toblerone increases according to the size? For example, the minis have just three peaks, the 35g bars nine peaks and the 100g 12 peaks.

…Toblerone is sold in 110 countries and latest figures show that the top three consumers of Toblerone are the Swiss, British and Australians, respectively?

…the Toblerone Matterhorn logo also conceals the figure of a bear? The bear is the emblem of the town of Berne where the factory was located.

…in Season 14, Episode 18 of the Emmy Award Winning series The Simpsons titled, “Dude, Where’s my Ranch?” an out of control beaver is seen gnawing on a bar of Toblerone.
