Snickers, Twix, and Kinder Bueno (just to name a few) are some childhood favorite chocolate bars that have turned into ice cream, making us want to run to the frozen sections of our local supermarkets. Now, Toblerone can be added to the mix. Yes, it's true — the nutty, rich goodness is hopping on board the ice cream train with a taste that is sure to satisfy all types of cravings. 

What is Toblerone Chocolate? 

Toblerone is made from some of the finest raw materials from around the world. The cocoa ingredient comes from cocoa trees that grow in the hot, humid zones between 20 degrees north and south of the equator. Every year, such a tree will yield 20 to 50 fruits, which in turn hold about 25 to 50 cocoa beans. Differences in taste, aroma and color of the chocolate are largely due to the species of cocoa tree, but are also affected by the makeup of the soil in the specific area of cultivation. Toblerone is made from a selection of cocoa beans from different parts of the world, including Mexico, Venezuela, and Ecuador. 

Milk is added to the chocolate to give it that creamy, silky texture. The milk in Toblerone comes mainly from Switzerland, the country that produces the best quality dairy products.  

The almond nougat (aka the star ingredient) is a mixture of almonds, honey, and egg whites, which give the chocolate its fluffy, light consistency and unique taste that separates Toblerone from the other leading chocolate brands. 

The History of Toblerone

Toblerone originates from the chocolatier's family name "Tobler" combined with "torrone," the Italian word for nougat. There are many great legends about Toblerone's infamous triangular shape. Chocolate lovers around the world have always believed that Theodor Tobler took his inspiration from his mountainous homeland, Switzerland. 

Right from the start, Theodor Tobler had a feeling that his new product would become famous, and boy, he was right! Concerned that someone might imitate his chocolate bar, his company, Tobler AG, applied for a patent in 1909 in Bern, Switzerland, to cover the manufacture of Toblerone. It soon became the first patented milk chocolate bar with almonds and honey.  

Judging from its history, you can tell that Toblerone takes great pride in its product, and just the same can be said for its brand new line of ice cream. 

The Toblerone Ice Cream 

If you're the type a person who can down an entire king sized chocolate bar in a single sitting, than you'll be happy to know that the new Toblerone ice cream comes in packs of three. 

But with every good thing comes an unfortunate catch — the ice cream is only available in the UK and will not be making its way overseas to the US. So if you want in, hop on a flight to England and race to the nearest Tesco or Asda store straight from the airport.

For only £3 (plus the price of a flight to the UK), you too can indulge in the chocolate-honey frozen heaven of Toblerone.
