I was not sure if they were still going to be available, i.e. in some shape or form. My understanding was that it was the extremely similar packaging that was the major issue. The ones I got were the green packing. I think 500,000 of these were still meant to be available, not sure if it really was limited to that, or just the press

It was all a big clever & slick marketing trick, poundland/dealz won as did toblerone/mondelez, both got free advertising, and both had boosted sales.

If they do have to stop the shape then I imagine they could make more in a different shape, which I would actually prefer it, as toblerones are a terrible shape to actually eat.

The likes of hunky dorys are sold in aldi alongside "okey dokeys" both made by the same factory. Difference here is the twin peaks are made by another company, but still, dealz will sell toberlones.

I feel your pain... desperate times call for desperate measures.

Are there any regularly available packets of chocs that are similar to the Cadburys Roses Brazilian Darkness?

The closest I can think of is Riesen, but it's just chocolate.

If you mean tubs, I say you'd find it difficult at this time of the year!

It's a good thread to have on the go in my opinion for those who want to pick up a few bits every week for Christmas or those those who just want to eat them now.
