Are you craving for the original Toblerone chocolate but have no relatives abroad to send you some. The popular Toblerone chocolate is already here in the Philippines a long time a ago. You can buy it in popular malls and groceries like SM Supermarket, Robinsons, 7-eleven and Mercury Drug Store.
For me the most intriguing is the bite size Toblerone or the Toblerone Mini. I bought two from sari-sari store but I was surprised. It never tasted like the real one. It has a dry grainy texture. I found out that it was a fake. The word written on label was Tolerone, an imitated version. Even foods have imitations like the very popular fake CDs and DVDs.
I went to Mercury Drug Store and found the thing again. I bought just one for 11.25 pesos. This one was for real. It was expensive compared to imitated version but I considered it cheap for a real one. This mini chocolate weighed 11.25 grams and has three partition. I can be snapped to three pieces easily so it can be shared to your friends but I bet you would never do it because it is just enough to calm your chocolate craving.
Toblerone Mini is suited for low budget individual who want a taste of this chocolate. However, it is not recommended for chocoholics, those person should buy the big version.
