4. The company made the announcement on its Facebook page on October 15.
Mondelez International, the US-based company that recently acquired Toblerone, said the weight of the 400g and 170g bars would be reduced to 360g and 150g respectively to cut costs.
A spokesperson told BuzzFeed News the delay between the announcement and the reaction was because of the time it took for the new-look chocolate bar to appear on shop shelves.
The spokesperson denied the change had anything to do with Brexit.
But, in a statement, they added that “unfortunately we are experiencing higher costs for numerous ingredients” and in order to keep the product on the shelves they have “had to reduce the weight” of the bars.
The new 150g bar is only sold in the UK, the spokesperson confirmed.
