Something very serious has happened, and for the first time since 2015, it doesn’t involve Donald Trump – or does it?!
It’s only been a few hours since the reality television star was elected president, but that doesn’t mean we can’t desperately search for a reason to hold him responsible for the devastating chocolate ordeal of 2016.
If you have been busy following the election, or just simply have more important things to worry about, you probably haven’t put much thought into the UK’s most favourite Swiss chocolate bar’s botched makeover. But, if you have access to the internet, the story has been pretty hard to avoid.
Amidst the continuous election drama, an important issue was brought to light, and that was the new shape of the Toblerone candy.
The tasty treat used to look like this:
And now… they look like this (brace yourselves):
The update was announced the same day Trump was elected president. Coincidence?
This change causes the volume of the bars to be reduced by roughly 10 per cent. That means you’re getting 10 per cent less chocolate, but paying the same price! That is so crazy, who would ever want to scam people for more money and be so obvious about it?
The horrific change comes after a number of companies raised prices to offset the effect of a plunging pound following the Brexit. Back in August, Trump tweeted this:
They will soon be calling me MR. BREXIT!

The treat is specifically popular around Christmas time, but this year it looks like people will be boycotting the delicious chocolate.
Forget about the presidency. Let's focus on the REAL issue here. #Toblerone is changing their shape, people!!

Just when I think this year can't get any worse, #Toblerone proves me wrong.
